Krüger’s approach is to study his subjects carefully. He reads their biographies and studies photos and video clips of each person before he paints them to get a strong impression of their characteristics. Then, while painting, Krüger becomes his subject, right down to the clothes they wear. Krüger once said, “I was Keith Richard’s shirt today” while walking out of his studio. Krüger intimately becomes what he paints to the point that he believes all of his paintings are a kind of self portrait. Krüger has a no nonsense approach to his art. When he paints, he uses intense concentration. The artistic energy takes over and its just the Krüger heart and the canvas; the outside world a distant memory as he layers down the foundation for yet another masterpiece.
