Stefan Kürten

Stefan Kürten is a painter and musician who creates layered and intricate depictions of architecture, landscapes and domestic interiors—frequently incorporating decorative motifs drawn from wallpaper or textiles. His work is typically devoid of figures, with human presence only indirectly referenced through his portrayal of the familiar spaces of everyday life. Kürten creates works that are simultaneously realistic depictions of the mundane and formalist experiments of line and pattern.
