On Dec. 2nd Sebastian enjoyed Motörhead’s concert in Hanover. After the show Krüger met with hard rock legend Lemmy Kilmister. 2004 was when Sebastian painted his most recent portrait of Lemmy called “Smiling like a Killer”.
A special thank you to (promotör) Ute for the lovely evening.

On January 22nd and 23rd a couple of new Krüger paintings will be introduced at Sebastian Krüger's new home gallery. Have a close look at Sebastians's latest painting "Sleepwalking" and the brand new limited editions. If you'd like to attend one of the private viewings please contact Bernd for further details.
Sebastian will be in attendance for both viewings.
Today Sebastian has signed his brand new limited print edition on paper. Only 60 prints + 6 artist proofs of "Charles & Company" will be available as a world edition. Each print is certified with a blind embossing and a hologram label and comes together with a matching "Certificate of Authenticity".
This year 26 Artists from 11 countries came to Barsinghausen/Germany to join Krüger's Workshop. Sebastian gave 2 live presentations on large canvases (160 x 180 cm). Above, Krüger paints Michael Jackson in acrylic. Soon we will post a new update showing the second painting. Please stay tuned!
This is what everyone sees when they start strolling on Boston's most famous historic shopping streets. Newbury Fine Arts gallery continues to count Sebastian Krüger as one of their favorite artists. Kruger's original paintings and latest printmaking are available at this location. With a staff that hails from art historical education, the gallery has been around for 25 years and is one of the leading galleries in contemporary fine art in the United States. During an enormously successful show with Sebastian in 2006, Sebastian was surrounded with over 100 gallery guests including Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, Bluesman James Montgomery, Bernard Fowler and Blondie. Artists and collectors alike flocked in to meet Sebastian. Talks of an upcoming event in 2010 are underway.
From now on Krüger's new printed limited editions on paper are equipped with numbered hologram labels and a blind embossing for large-sized prints. All corresponding 'Certificates of Authenticity' feature the same product identifications and serial numbers as basis for traceability. The print runs (world edition) for most of Krüger's new limited editions are in a range between 20 and 80. New editions will be published on our blog first.
Here's one for the record books! The Rolling Stones, featured in Sebastian's largest painting to date. This Fine Art Painting is pure Krüger, and a tribute, by the artist, to the band themselves and their fans. The lines in their faces tell the story of 45 years of Rock 'n' Roll by the greatest rock band the world has ever known. Proudly displaying their life lines like a badge of honor, a triumph to their supreme accomplishments. Revealing an intimate narrative of the legendary rock group, without superfluous makeup, botox or photo manipulation. A summary of impressions and idiosyncrasies meticulously collected and mapped by the artist over his many years of personal contact with the band.
During the past 4 months Sebastian has created a new masterpiece of art on canvas. It's a painting of the Rolling Stones titled 'Charles & Company'. Next week the original painting will be scanned using one of Germany's biggest scanners. The size of the artwork is 270 x 200 cm (106 x 79 inches). Above you can see Sebastian's color preparatory sketch (29,7 x 21 cm).
