Christian Stecher was born in 1958 at Malles/Mals (Vinschgau Valley) and spent his youth in San Valentino alla Muta/St. Valentin auf der Haide (Vinschgau Valley). After his study at the Academy of Fine Arts, a scholarship to the Scuola di Grafica “Il Bisonte” in Florence and initial working stays in South America, Mexico, Spain and Ireland he becomes a freelance artist. From 1991 on, he works in his studio in San Valentino alla Muta/St. Valentin auf der Haide and since 2004 half of the year in his studios in Mexico City and Mérida. With the beginning of the 90ies, he started presenting his artworks in various exhibitions.
Before every new exhibition Christian Stecher deals intensely with it and shows already existing works, but he also creates new pieces and themes which conform into the showroom. It is important to him, to get affected by the ambience and let arise a concept before his inner eye. So he also partial creates new works of art for the exhibition at the city museum Bruneck/Brunico which he will present in thematic groups.
