THE EARLY YEARS
Frank Krüger was born in Berlin in 1962 and created exceptional works in oil on canvas since his early childhood. As the son of a technical drawer, he was practically born with the sense of details, perspectives and color harmonies. His first painting was sold at the age of just twelve years.
After school and his education as an stockman in the zoo of Berlin, years of artistic self-discovery followed. In 1992 after successful exhibitions in Berlin and on Mallorca Frank Krüger decided to move to this gorgeous island and devote himself exclusively to art.
CALA RATJADA – PALMA – BERLIN
Since 2007, the artist paints and sells his works at the Galeria Frank Krueger on the waterfront at the port of Cala Ratjada, Mallorca. The view when he looks up from his easel, offers him the azure sea and the bobbing fishing boats in the harbor.
Since 2010 his work can also been found in the second “Galeria Frank Krüger” in the heart of the island capital Palma de Mallorca. There, on over 500 square meters his paintings are presented as well as the work of other international artists.
The next big step followed in 2016 with the opening of the third “Galeria Frank Krüger” in Berlin-Mitte at the Gendarmenmarkt.
Since may 2018 you can find his work also in the 4th “Galeria Frank Krüger” in Port d’Andratx on Mallorca.
MOTIVES AND INSPIRATION
It is not only Mallorca, but also cities like New York and his hometown Berlin, which inspire Frank Krueger.
Different motifs are interacting to an interesting, highly impressive fusion with one another and are forming precisely crafted masterpieces, that can be described best with the concept of a partially surrealist “photo-realism”.
Frank Krüger’s unique work on aluminum and his bulls are internationally known.
He finds inspiration and relaxation, when he takes his Harley-tours on the virgin coastal roads or the interior of the island, where the beauty of the island can be discovered again and again and new ideas are developed.
The purity of the light and colors of Mallorca are reflected in his work, always looking to capture the charm of its landscape.
