Born in 1962, David Krueger approaches everything in life with boundless enthusiasm and imagination. Heavily inspired by pop culture and storytelling, Krueger’s work is saturated with symbols, vibrant colors, graphic shapes, and detailed patterns. His geometric style is characterized by horizontal bands drawn across the canvas which break up the frame into narrative sections, reminiscent of comic book layouts. Between these lines, he incorporates elaborate decorative elements that include stars, zigzags, squares, crosses, X’s, and radiating lines.
Krueger’s work was recently featured at Untitled Art Fair in Miami Beach and the Outsider Art Fair in NYC. Previous exhibitions include In Good Company at the Chicago Cultural Center and All Well and Good at Circle Contemporary. He has an ongoing collaborative practice with artist Ben Marcus, creating comics about the character Love Man. Krueger’s practice has been featured in Disparate Minds. He can also be heard on the Arts of Life Band’s 2017 album Kinda Weirdy.
“I make paintings with my own two hands – these are my tools. These are the magic fingers, I’ve got the Midas touch. I get ideas from watching TV or my imagination. My brain tells me everything and I’ll do a sketch. It could be any sketch I choose, then I draw it out on canvas. Everything fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. People like my art, they say ‘Ohhhh Krueger, you’ve got talent!’”
