English: John Fekner (born in NYC), is an innovative artist who created hundreds of environmental and conceptual outdoor works consisting of stenciled words, symbols, dates and icons spray painted in New York, Sweden, Canada, England and Germany in the 70s and 80s. A seminal figure in the Street Art movement, Fekner participated in recent urban art exhibitions such as Wooster Collective's 11 Spring Street Project in 2006. Working with Don leicht, their latest outdoor project, entitled "The Stanley Cup is missing" is currently part of the annual BLK River street art festival in Vienna, Austria. Art writer Lucy Lippard writes, "Fekner does in public what a lot of art world artists don’t even do in galleries: he dispels ambiguity by naming his visions, his viewpoint."
