Sebastian Kruger (born June 30, 1963 in Hamelin, Germany) is a German artist. Sebastian Kruger was born in Hamelin in 1963. After studying free painting with Prof. Dörfler at the Braunschweig University of Fine Arts he made a stunning reputation as the designer of a number of cover spreads for the press in Germany and abroad and as an illustrator and creative designer of various LP covers. He then stepped away from commercial work and devoted himself solely to free painting. Artistically he has developed, in recent years, away from the early role of the so-called \"star caricaturist\" to that of a star of the New Pop Realism. His artistic visions are treasured and collected by other stars of the pop scene, like the Rolling Stones, who are friends of his, and by art connoisseurs all over the world. In the quarter century of his creative career Kruger has remained true to the ideal of a New Pop Art, dedicating his art to a kind of game of deception, the interplay of identity and pose, of authenticity and fiction. This has enabled him to establish himself as a popular painter whose works draw large numbers of visitors to the galleries and museums. The defining feature of his work is creative reflection about the apparatus of media presentation and the manic iconography of contemporary picture production. His FACES are a kindly meant but thoroughly subversive tribute to the world of beautiful appearances and to the rock and pop culture of the sixties, with which the painter has cultivated an almost ritualistic relationship. According to his own comment on his work ( \"Everything is in transition, that\'s all\") he has devoted himself for some years, with the same artistic passion as before, to the reworking of the private world of his childhood.

In the early 1980\'s Kruger studied painting and graphic arts, and then quickly moved into the professional art world where his iconic \'personality portraits\' continue to captivate famous collectors and audiences across the continents. Kruger approaches nearly all of his subjects with a level of respect and sincerity contrasting the often extreme exaggeration of their features. The result is the creation of visually and psychologically explosive \'Krugerized\' portraits.
