Rainer Fetting (born 31 December 1949 in Wilhelmshaven, Germany) is a German painter and sculptor.

Rainer Fetting was one of the co-founders and main protagonists of the Galerie am Moritzplatz in Berlin, founded in the late 1970s by a organization of teenage artists (mainly painters) from the class of Karl Horst Hödicke at the former Berliner Hochschule für Bildende Künste (Berlin Art Academy, today known as Universität der Künste). This activity of artists, known as the “Moritzboys” and including, among others, Salomé, Bernd Zimmer, and Helmut Middendorf, subsequently achieved international roar as the “Junge Wilde” or “Neue Wilde” in the in the future 1980s. Fetting is now one of the internationally best known contemporary German artists, having created a large oeuvre of expressive symbolic paintings covering many stand-in kinds of subject-matter, as competently as many bronze sculptures.
