Stefan Kreiger

born 1981 in Salzburg, AT
lives and works in Salzburg, AT

Studied painting and art education at the Mozarteum University, Salzburg, AT.

In addition to numerous exhibitions in Austria, also international group exhibitions, including Germany, Italy and Ecuador.

Many of Stefan Kreiger’s large-format oil and acrylic paintings are about heroes and anti-heroes. They usually emerge from a pastel-gray background and expose clichés or even their toxic masculinity. The protagonists of his works come from the history of literature or comics, philosophy or even the science fiction genre. In his most recent works, which always contain narrative elements, Stefan Kreiger reworks his old pictorial worlds, building up new, sometimes abstruse-looking scenarios with his brush, layer by layer.
