Self-taught artist David Sprenger was born in Liechtenstein and currently resides in Bogota, Colombia, where he finds inspiration in the many modern towers, hidden backyards and colorful house facades of the city and uses them as raw material for his abstractions.
Enigmatic objects, empty apartments and barren landscapes are recurring motifs in Sprenger’s captivating acrylic paintings. His works are characterized by clearly defined edges, carefully selected perspectives and high-contrast shading to achieve a strict visual order within an uncanny setting. He employs these abandoned buildings and unfamiliar structures set in hostile deserts, devoid of people, to establish a contrast to the human egocentricity so often celebrated in modern society. Combining elements of both Surrealism and Minimalism he conjures up dream-like worlds that draw the viewer in and make them wonder.
Sprenger's works are currently part of private collections in the US, Spain, Norway, Liechtenstein and Kuwait.
