Tobias Kroeger

About

Tobias Kroeger (b. 1977, Bremen, Germany) is a self-taught artist who has shown his work in galleries throughout Europe and has had solo exhibitions in the United States.

"I am obsessed with drawing. Drawings are the strongest part of my art. They are natural. They are imperfect. They come without thinking. They work or they don't. They keep me going. The goal of my recent work is to bring all this energy to the large-scale canvas."

Tobias Kroeger began as a graffiti artist in 1990, but was soon influenced by fine art, especially the works of Neo-Expressionism. Tobias Kroeger draws almost daily. His abstract drawings relate to nature, human sexuality and figurative elements. To bring the energy of his drawings to the canvas, Tobias Kroeger paints large-format pictures directly with the oiltube.
