Markus Frings - german painter
Markus Frings, German painter (* February 17, 1972)
Aachen). He has started at an early stage (1989)
to present his work to the public in exhibitions
and has thus begun his artistic career.
In the mid-nineties, Markus Frings has, besides his artistic
activities, run the Gallery 13 in Aachen where among others
also artists such as Hartmut Ritzerfeld and Angelika Kühnen
had their paintings on display. After having accomplished
vocational training as a locksmith he absolved a course of
studies (autonomous art) at the Academy of Education in
Fine Arts and Design in Maastricht, The Netherlands.
Afterwards, the modern art, mixed with the influence of
autonomous art became more and more apparent in his
works. Examples of this are, for instance, the series
“building complex”, around 2005-2007, and “Chocolate man” (2008).
Dazzling colours and an environment which seems to be
unrealistic have meanwhile become the hallmark of his
works. His paintings have been shown, among others, in the
Stadsgalerij Heerlen 2006/2007 in The Netherlands and also
in the Suermondt-Ludwig-Museum Aachen 2008
