Stefan Krische studied archictecture, taught himself to use 3D programs, and has worked as a freelancer in architectural modelling and visualizations. Krische wears its influences on its sleeve. Whether the artist is animating his own version of Dalí’s The Persistence of Memory, or visually recalling the impossible worlds of M.C. Escher, it's clear that he's inspired by the great graphic artists and surrealists who came before him. His work follows in their footsteps, and is fantastical and darkly humorous. It's also mesmerising and surprisingly diverse, whether he's depicting a person with a head made out of human hands, complete with fingers for hair, or mixing Escher with Pink Floyd for an army of men who are also literally bricks in a wall. His work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions internationally, in Austria, Greece, the US, and so on.
