Krüger Workshop 2006, Highlights

A group of 18 diverse artists joined the 2nd Krüger Professional Artists' Workshop held in one of Germany's most beautiful tourism areas, Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Krüger showed the attendees a number of unpublished works and new paintings, and talked about his upcoming projects.

'DaVinci', the art brush producers, were in attendance to provide useful information about their acrylic brushes.
During the 5 days seminar all participants worked on 3 main themes.

Sketches and paintings of:
King Ludwig II
Richard Wagner
"Wolpertinger" (a fable animal)

In a 3 hour live presentation Krüger painted an image of the famous German composer, Richard Wagner. The group of artists took side trips visiting the castles of King Ludwig II. "Linderhof" Castle and "Neuschwanstein" or "Cinderella's Castle".

A special thanks for the great hospitality of the hotel Mercure staff in Partenkirchen.

New York City Show: REVIEW

Pop International Inc., SoHo, 26th of September 2006

Krüger's 'Art Tour' Fall 2006 was continued in NYC where fans had the chance to see many completely different works than in Boston. Two large works had been finished just days before they needed to be shipped from Kruger's studio (in Germany) to New York. These two paintings of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards had never been seen before, and it was no surprise that they had been sold before the show had officially begun.
During the show, the gallery space was packed with people. Over 200 Krüger aficionados from all over the country had come to meet with Sebastian and see his latest creations. During the show Krüger spoke with many people and happily answered questions about his work and career. Krüger autographed several of his books and also some catalogues upon request.

About 150 Kruger Fans, some of them celebrities, were present at the Boston Show. Among them Sebastian's long time friend Ronnie Wood along with Bernard Fowler, Blondie Chapman and Tim Reese were some of the celebrity sightings at Kruger's first ever solo show in Boston. Kruger fans and admirers from as far as Canada, Virginia and Arizona found their long way to the East Coast to meet with Sebastian and see his latest works in person. A special thank you goes to the gallery staff for providing plenty of 'feel good' New England hospitality.
