Daniel Richter, born in 1962 in Lütjenburg, Germany, is a towering figure in the realm of contemporary art, celebrated for his striking, large-scale paintings and prints that oscillate between abstraction and figuration. Since the 1990s, Richter has left an indelible mark on the German art scene, solidifying his status as a leading figure in contemporary painting. He first made a name for himself with his abstract artworks but underwent a significant evolution at the dawn of the new millennium, integrating narrative elements and vivid exploration of political and social themes into his art. Daniel Richter’s chosen medium, classical oil painting, juxtaposes his use of contemporary imagery sourced from mass media, popular culture, and art history. Central to his artistic vocabulary is the representation of artificial light, such as flashlights, thermal images, or X-rays, through which he engages in subversive commentary on current events. This blend of traditional techniques with contemporary subject matter underscores his distinctive approach to art-making. His paintings and prints often delve into the theme of total surveillance, a reflection of his affiliation with anarchic movements whilst carrying an inherent sense of paranoia and unease. The use of infra-red and thermal imaging in his artworks underscores a critical perspective on contemporary society’s surveillance culture. Educated at the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg (HFBK), Daniel Richter has significantly contributed to the academic sphere, sharing his insights and experience with aspiring artists. His artworks have graced numerous galleries and museums globally, such as the Hamburger Kunsthalle, the  National Gallery of Canada, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Essl Museum in Vienna, Tokyo’s Mori Art Museum, and the Saatchi Gallery affirming his place as a major voice in contemporary art.
