About the artist

Chris Succo

Chris Succo (born 1979) is a German artist known for his abstract paintings, although he works in a wide range of media including sculpture and photography. Succo’s paintings are known for their resemblance to writing and calligraphy, showcasing the significant influences music and poetry have on him and his work. Working in a minimalist palette consisting largely of matte black and white, he creates many of his paintings by spray painting lacquer and oil on canvas. In one of his best known series, the White Paintings, the background of the painting is partially obscured by layers of white paint, allowing flashes of the colors to show through. Through his painting, Succo explores how to create individuality in unique works of art while also building a cohesive oeuvre through repetition of patterns and techniques. In addition to his paintings he silkscreens collages on canvas or sculptures with steel, mesh, or boxing equipment, creating a narrative between the works. Poetry influences not only Succo’s work but the titles he chooses for them, many coming from the poetry book “The Price You Pay For Not Being Alone With Your Dying” which he co-authored. Succo has exhibited his work around Europe, the UK, and the United States.
