Serge Maudet

csm MAUDET SERGE RI 4945 cf7da989ae

Date of birth: 01.02.1954

President since 2013, Serge Maudet's hands and legs have been paralysed since birth. Already as a child his mother taught him to use his mouth and to hold a pencil between his teeth. "I was born with a brush between my teeth. Painting was my first means of expressing myself. As a child I painted the things that I could not do and that became the tool for expressing my feelings", says the mouthpainter. At the age of 17 he decided to take a correspondence course in accounting. However, he soon realised that he was not suited for that kind of work. He decided to dedicate himself fully to drawing. At the age of 22 he received a scholarship from the Association. In 1983 he became full member of the VDMFK. In October 2002 he was elected member of the board on the occasion of the general meeting in Lisbon.

Serge Maudet took private classes with a professor in Paris. As a landscape painter the artist follows the tradition of the French impressionists. In many paintings and some details the artist's personal pictorial philosophy of life becomes evident. Every year Serge Maudet takes part in numerous exhibitions. In addition, every year he teaches various courses, aimed at those people who want to embark on the adventure of painting. Serge Maudet's great success with his works and his courses have made the media report repeatedly about the mouthpainter.

On the General Assembly which was held in Vienna in 2013, Serge Maudet was elected the 4th President of the AMFPA.

The Founder Prof. A. E. Stegmann

A. Erich Stegmann


The first president of the association – Arnulf Erich Stegmann – was a prominent figure in the development of mouth and foot painting. Born in 1912 in Darmstadt, Germany, Stegmann lost the use of both arms from polio at the age of two. Regardless, his artistic talents were soon recognized and supported by his teachers. He was proficient with a variety of brushes and styles, using only his mouth.


He was educated at the School of Higher Education for Book Trade and Graphics in Nurenberg and studied with the artists Erwin von Kormöndy and Hans Gerstacker. He made a living selling his art cards and prints at marketplaces. After the Second World War Stegmann established his own publishing company with the poignant name "Dennoch" ("Anyway").


In 1953/54 he organized the group "Lodge of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists" as a type of artist community. From there, the international "Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists" was formed and A. E. Stegmann was voted president for live.
