Born 1969. Lives and works in Dortmund, Germany.
He takes his inspiration from the things that surround him. His art is always a reaction and reflection – your stories are his stories!
From here to anywhere else. Krell has his roots in the graffiti art. He produces his first pieces of art according to the American graffiti style in 1983. He starts realistic painting in 2005. To this day the spray can has remained a loyal companion, but not his first choice of tools.
His credo is to tell stories or just move things into the right light. Anything can be his inspiration. Your stories can be his stories. All he does is decorate and give things a new outfit. At the moment scribbling and tagging is it. Combinations of tried and trusted and fantasies show him the direction. He can´t even imagine where this leads to. And actually, he doesn´t even care. The main thing is, that it is full of life.
