Sebastian Krüger is a German painter and caricaturist. His primary medium is acrylic paint, and his caricatures are hyper-realistic in detail, yet also extremely grotesque in their distortion. The Times praised him for "capturing the essence of his subjects" in his renderings. He is well known for his lifelike depictions of The Rolling Stones, in particular, Keith Richards.
Sebastian Kruger published three collections of his works, and has a yearly art calendar from Morpheus International. Kruger's art can be seen frequently in Playboy magazine and has also been featured in the likes of Stern, L’Espresso, Penthouse and Der Spiegel and USA Today. He has recently been working on select motion picture projects.
In the quarter-century of his creative career, Sebastian Krüger, as a promoter of New Pop Art, has established himself as a popular artist whose objective is committed to the conundrum of identity and portraiture, the authenticity of the fictional. His works attract large numbers of visitors to the galleries and museums. Creative contemplation of the apparatus of media presentation, the icon mania of contemporary production of images, is the defining characteristic of his paintings. His Faces are a benevolent but subversive tribute to the world of the beautiful surface, the rock and pop culture of the sixties, with which the artist has cultivated an almost ritual relationship.
