Superheroes To The Rescue, 2018
16″ x 20″
Acrylic on canvas
Krueger’s comic-style story panels often depict domestic or cosmopolitan scenes. The text here reads “We-All Home” and “Come Back” which could be a message to the Superheroes mentioned in the title, or a reference to theatrical dialogue in a stage play. The graphic A’s which support the architecture in the top half of the painting appear to be growing out of an A-frame house. Krueger has been a Chicago studio artist since 2007.

David Krueger approaches everything in his life with boundless energy and enthusiasm. This is evident in his artwork- each piece full of bright colors, graphic shapes and geometric patterns.
“To me, art makes me really happy about myself, it gives me a lift. It makes me feel happy to experience the different colors and the different textures. I like to spread my feelings through my paintings. I like to add different colors to add them to my paintings.”
Drawing inspiration from graphic art, he employs bright colors and symbols in his paintings. His geometric style is characterized by horizontal bands drawn across the canvas which break up the frame into narrative sections, reminiscent of a comic book. Between these lines, David uses decorative elements including stars, zigzags, squares, crosses, and X’s. This abstract approach to Pop Art is bold and dynamic- just like the man himself.
“When I look at my paintings, I breathe life into it. People like my art. They say, ‘Ohhhh, Krueger, you’ve got talent!’”
Krueger’s work was included in the Chicago Cultural Center’s 2019 exhibition In Good Company, and the Circle Contemporary exhibition All Well and Good. He has an ongoing collaborative practice with artist Ben Marcus, creating comics about the character Love Man. Krueger’s practice was recently featured by the website Disparate Minds. He can also be heard on the Arts of Life Band’s 2017 album Kinda Weirdy.
