Daniel Richter (Born 1962 in Eutin) is a German artist known for his large-scale paintings inspired by mass media and contemporary culture. Working within the tradition of Expressionism, Richter’s practice could be seen as following in the tradition of Edvard Munch and James Ensor. He was a student of Werner Büttner at the Hamburg Academy of Fine Arts during the 1990s and later worked as Albert Oehlen’s studio assistant. Richter’s work has evolved from wild abstractions towards politically based representational imagery. He lives and works in Berlin and is Professor at the Kunst Académie in Vienna. Richter’s works are held in the collections of the Kunstmuseum Bonn, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Weserburg Museum of Modern Art in Bremen, among others.
