Lajos FLESSER

1937, Hungary

Name Lajos FLESSER
Birth 1937, 11/8, Hungary

Lajos Flesser was born on Aug. 11, 1937 in Budapest, where he grew up in the shadow of World War II. In his late teens he studied at a grade school, concentrating on metal skills. His need of comradeship and communication made him start boxing. And the success was not long in coming.
Then came the fatal year 1956, when soviet tanks crushed the dreams of freedom. Flesser escaped and came to Sweden via Denmark. He still remembers his arrival in the refugee camp in Mölle on Nov. 6. Shortly after that he was moved to Uddevalla, where the big shipbuilding yard could offer him a job after he had spent some time in the camp.
In boxing circles Flesser was already a well established name with a couple of Hungarian championships and other successes on his list of qulifications.
In Gothenburg the well known boxing promotor Edvin Ahlqvist soon became aware of Flesser\\\'s capacity as a boxer and offered him a contract. His début as a proffesionell occurred in May 1957, when Ingemar Johansson met Henry Cooper. Great possibilities turned up after Flesser had moved to Gothenburg, where he stayed until 1980. His life was not quite free from problems. He says himself that he had difficulties in adapting to his new country…
Meeting Birgitte (Gitte) Outzen-Schmidt of Danish origin was of the greatest importance. They live together since 30 years and the family also comprises the daughter Zarah and the son Simon. From 1980 they have their home in Helsingborg.
In 1985 Flesser and his wife opened an art gallery in Helsingborg, introducing quite a row of international leading artists.
For Flesser\\\'s evolution in an artistic direction the gallery indubitaly bacame the great inspiration. Studying art of different categories and contact with artists of importance developed his understanding and technical knowledge.
The origin of Flesser\\\'s work is to be found on the continent, but his work has become a valuable contribution to Swedish art. It has had considerable success at exhibitions abroad, for example in Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, France ad the United States.

Lajos Flesser, född 1937 i Budapest, har under de två senaste decennierna varit intensivt verksam som målare och visat sina arbeten i Sverige, i de andra nordiska länderna, i Paris och Bryssel samt i Tyskland och Luxemburg.
Han har även tagit steget över till USA – San Francisco och New York, där hans verk har mötts med intresse och uppskattning.
Flessers måleri präglas av en säregen palettknivsteknik. Flera färgskikt över varandra pressas samman av knivbladet, och det sker en blandning mellan de olika skikten, vilket ger verket en mosaikartad prägel, men också ett rytmiskt sammanhang. Denna säregna teknik framkallar effektivt verkens märkliga, drömartade symbolik, med uppdykande figurer som är förknippade med varandra och med en rymd bakom, ofta fylld med svävande fjärilar.
