About the artist: 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 trade school, concentrating on metal skills. His need of communication made him start boxing, and the success was long in coming. In boxing circles, Flesser became a well established name with a couple of Hungarian championships. Then came the fatal year 1956, when Soviet tanks crushed the dreams of freedom. Flesser escaped and came to Sweden via Denmark. In Gothenburg the well known boxing promoter Edvin Alqvist soon became aware of Flesser's capacity as a boxer and offered him a contract. His debut occurred in May 1957, when Ingemar Johannson met Henry Cooper. This made his new entry into the unfamiliar country a little easier.. For Fleser's evolution in an artistic direction the gallery - opened in 1985 - indubitably became the great inspiration. He fight his way into the competitive art galleries in Helsingborg and followed the principle of raising the bar and concentrating on international art. Studying art of different categories and contact with artists of importance developed his understanding and technical knowledge. Beside the supporting pillars Bengt Lindstrom and Bengt Olson Flesser - the two greatest Swedish artists in Paris whom he introduced in his gallery, there were other mentors and artists he introduced in his gallery in Helsingborg, such as Alan Davie, Hans Hartung, Kiro Urdin, Frans Widerberg and the sculptor Zoltan Pal. His work has had considerable success throughout the world, especially in Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the U.S. it is held in corporate and private collections worldwide.
