Based in: Munich
The German artist Markus Krug was born in 1965 in Singen. Today he lives and works in Munich.
For more than 20 years, Markus Krug has been exploring structural concepts in series that build on each other. Planning, clarity, implementation: in different techniques sculptures, objects and installations are created, they resemble each other, could be connected like a kind of matrix.
Markus Krug creates homogeneous, reduced works from a wide variety of materials: paper, cardboard, Styrofoam or polystyrene foam. Due to the manual working method, minimal differences arise, which are emphasized or even laminated by the application of acrylic paint, mainly in black or white. The viscosity, quantity and handling of the paint is always changed from object to object, while the reference to the origin always remains.
Markus Krug has exhibited his artwork in several solo exhibitions, including at the Kunstverein Bellevue-Saal, Wiesbaden, Germany (2016), Galeriehaus Nord, Nuremberg, Germany (2019) or Üblacker-Häusl, Munich, Germany (2021). He has been invited to numerous group exhibitions in Istanbul (Turkey), Vienna (Austria), Munich, Berlin and Leipzig (Germany).
