About the Item

AXEL CRIEGER - CLASSIC series Archival Pigment Print mounted and framed in a black shadowbox frame. 43 x 55 inches 110 x 140 cm Edition of 12 Signed, numbered and dated CHROMA presents Axel Crieger CLASSIC series, limited edition prints, with a certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist and signature label. German artist Axel Crieger was born in 1955 in Germany and currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California, USA. Crieger invites us to his magical world of dreamlike imagery that takes shape in his mind like “headshots”. A sort of combination of truth and imagined reality created through a digital collage that has never been photographed. “His works are the expression of an intimate world released through creative images dipped in new scenarios, full of vivid colors or stressed with lights and shadows able to convey the work a mysterious charm similar to an allegory.” The concepts of “truth” and “reality” fuse together when the American-German artist creates his modern photo-collages of the Icon series; out of previous images and special effects he recreates new environments for famous figures of modern history. As he says, these images are “headshots” created in his mind. Many Hollywood stars are devoted collectors of Crieger´s works, which are also internationally awarded. Axel’s Digital Paintings are composed of a variety of photographic quotes, designs, drawings, and special effects to create images, which have never been photographed. His art has been exhibited around the world and is represented by various international galleries and international art fairs. He met with Andy Warhol and got published in his Interview Magazine, the publication founded in late 1969 by the major pioneer of the pop art movement. In 1980 Joseph Beuys, German avant-garde sculptor and performance artist (1921-1986), painted over one of his exhibits, signed it and declared the result Best of the Show. Oscar winner Michael Blake published his book “American Night”, and Muhammad Ali received “Rumble in the Jungle” for his private collection. His protagonists are mostly historical personalities who are placed in a situation saturate by the artist’s historical knowledge. His works can be found in many private and public art collections like the Miller Collection Los Angeles, Jones Day International, Abdi Ibrahim Istanbul, Aberdeen International, Begum Agakhan in Zurich, McKinsey & Company Moscow, Muhammad Ali in Los Angeles, Ernst&Young in London, EON Ag in Germany, Consulate of the Netherlands in Istanbul, Robert Lee in Hong Kong, KMP Singapore, Silvio Denz in Paris, Young & Rubicam in Tel Aviv, just to name a few. “Axel Crieger’s luxurious images are magical and transport you to a world of dreams where real life takes on new dimensions. The images are mysterious and the very thoughtfully selected palette gives them a dramatic feel”. Eva Ledecka “The digital images by artist Axel Crieger will attract anybody’s attention. They are timeless, modern, depict celebrities in dreamlike settings and luxury products giving them a highly originally and uncompromising new look”. Luxury Living “Axel Crieger’s version of transformative art is as irritating and disturbing as it is fabulous”. Guénolé de Bouvoir

  • Bruni vs Sarkosy, After Comte
    By Alex Guofeng Cao
    Located in New York, NY
    In a captivating new collection, Alex Guofeng Cao dazzles audiences with his unique twist on instantly recognizable images. Inspired by history and pop culture, Cao manipulates one iconic image to create another in his extraordinary large-scale works. From a distance, the pieces appear to be a singular image but as the viewer approaches closer, you find each work is a masterfully crafted compilation of minute detailed images layered next to one another, creating a mesmerizing and hypnotic optical illusion. Cao meticulously places each smaller image to form a dynamic gradient from dark to light which tricks the eye into seeing one image. This expertise in contrast is exemplified in all of his works, from striking black and white pieces to stunning explorations in high-definition color. He cleverly mirrors this visual contrast in his subject matter by subverting the main image and creating a dialogue between the macrocosm and microcosm. Take the piece, Ali vs Armstrong; here we see the iconic image of Muhammed Ali’s victory composed of thousands of tiny portraits...
