Our first and second year grads had the chance to visit Sven Kroner’s studio in Neuss. Each student had the opportunity to meet with the artist individually for a critique.

Kroner is a contemporary German painter who studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, where he was a master student in Dieter Krieg’s class. His large-format works mostly show landscapes and interiors. Kroner uses different perspectives and levels in his works to create a spectacle of illusions. The viewer is shown a fictitious place that on the one hand reflects reality, but on the other hand address memory and visions of the future.
