David Černý (born December 15, 1967) is an award-winning, Jewish-Czech sculptor whose controversial works can be seen publicly in many European countries and the United States. According to Sternstein, Černý’s work is Czech hooliganism at its best. Though it’s tempting to group Černý with many other artists of his generation as ‘rebellious’ or ‘anarchist’, Sternstein argued that this would be an oversimplification. Černý’s highest aim is a self-reflective laugh, not social chaos. Despite its illegality, ‘hooliganism’ stands for just that.
