Michael Krebber

Born 1954, Köln, Germany
Lives and works in New York.


Michael Krebber is one of the central figures in Cologne-based art scene and is prominently involved in the international scene of conceptual painting. Krebber questions in his work the medium’s ontology. The artist includes only one or two brush strokes on a large canvas or sometimes covers his canvases with exhibition posters. Through this ultra-restrained intervention, Krebber’s conceptual approach examines what can come next for painting.
