David Sprenger

Liechtensteiner, 1982



Enigmatic objects, empty apartments and barren landscapes are recurring motifs in David Sprenger’s captivating acrylic paintings. His works are characterized by clearly defined edges, carefully selected perspectives, and high-contrast shading to achieve a strict visual order within an uncanny setting. He employs these abandoned buildings and unfamiliar structures set in hostile deserts, devoid of people, to establish a contrast to the human egocentricity so often celebrated in modern society. Combining elements of both Surrealism and Minimalism he conjures up dream-like worlds that draw the viewer in and make them wonder.

The self-taught artist was born in Liechtenstein. His works are currently part of private collections in the US, Spain, Norway, Liechtenstein and Kuwait.
