Andrzej Stech (September 9, 1635 in Słupsk – January 12, 1697 in Gdańsk) was a Polish painter.

He was the son of Heinrich Stech a painter from Lubeka. In 1636, together with his family he moved to Gdańsk. It is most likely that he was taught by his father; from 1653, by his father-in-law Adolf Boy (1612-1683). In 1658, he married the widow of the painter August Ranisch. After the death of his first wife, he married Adelgunda, the daughter of Nikiasz Wulf. He had five children from his first marriage, and four from his second. In 1662, he became the Master Artisan on the basis of his artwork: The Calling of St. Andrew (Powołanie św. Andrzeja) and Croesus throwing himself in the fire (Krezus rzucający się w płomienie). In 1667, he received Gdańsk citizenship. In 1673, he became a juror. From 1677, he worked for King John III Sobieski of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. His brother was also a painter.
