Sven Drühl currently lives and works in Berlin. He studied both in art and mathematics. With a PhD in art theory, he is also an author and editor of publications on contemporary art. Conceptually, Sven Drühl dissects visual shapes and types taken from every era from Romanticism to the present day, re-mounting them and combining them with his own motifs. Drühl reacts to the crisis of expression in post-modern painting with these transformed citations but has purposefully not ceased to paint. His exploration of art history and his continual questioning of painting as a medium are at the heart of his oeuvre. He became known through his compilations of famous landscape paintings and had been exhibited throughout Europe, Asia and the United States including the St. Matthäuskirche, Berlin, Museum Villa-Rot, Neue Galerie Gladbeck, National Museum of Art of Romania, Bucharest, Kallman-Museum, Ismaning, Museum Haus am Waldsee, Berlin, ZKM | Museum für Neue Kunst, Karlsruhe. His work is in collection of Berlinische Galerie -Museum für moderne Kunst, Berlin, Allianz Forum, Deutsche Bank, E.ON Art Collection, Düsseldorf, Collection Philara, Düsseldorf.
