|Introduction||Frank Christopher Schroeder, born 1967, is an independent remodernist painter, writer, draftsman and collage artist. His creative philosophy roots deeply in the punk, heavy metal and hardcore counterculture of the 1970s and 1980s, where a 'do it yourself' (DIY) attitude was the motor behind everything. In his work he mixes early 20th century cubism, expressionism and dadaism with more contemporary phenomena such as punk art and graffiti. In 2002 he joined the Stuckists.|
In 2013 Schroeder publishes his first novel Wie Ein Licht Im Dunkeln.
Stuckism is a radical art movement founded in London in 1999 to advance new figurative painting with ideas as the most vital artistic means of addressing contemporary issues.
