The Berlin-born ceramic artist’s showroom in the heart of Berlin-Schöneberg has to be seen to be believed......
It's greyhounds and gigolos who are wearing old-fashioned haute couture at Hinrich Krögers studio, painted onto faiences, engobes, clays and porcelains. On a decorative wall plate, a French bulldog, painted gold and turquoise, seems to go cross-eyed while trying to throw lascivious looks at a tea service draped with golden pugs. In the shop window, large poodles with raspberry-red noses are sniffing each other on a floor vase, right next to Luigi – the sculpture of a well-endowed man, posing like a stripper with a tattooed erection, around which the whole figure pivots on something that looks very much like a cream cake. Here at Eisenacher Strasse 114 in 10777 BERLIN, Hinrich Kröger has been producing and exhibiting his art sice 2021, in Berlin since 1984, paintings on ceramics, sculptures made from clay, drawings and more.
Tchaikovsky´s Swan Lake, balloon-sized boxes with sunken worlds depicted on them, white lions, snow hares draped with luxurious scarfs and smoking cigars, tattooed boys and expensive girls, sailors, a tree of paradise into which airplanes are crashing – a veritable new cosmos was created by Hinrich Kröger. His works reflect his mastery with these materials, each is a unique piece made in this studio, kneaded, turned, modeled, glazed, painted, gilded, some of them fired seven or eight times, to get it just so. The beautiful eccentricity of some of his works have given him international fame, and it is reflected in the clients that can be as appealing as the ladies on his Moulin-Rouge Cocoa service. A cocain-box with golden skulls meets Japanese Diva, and a beautiful and world-famous pianist snatches up a large floor vase with panthers and tigers...

Un univers fantaisiste, créé par Hinrich Kröger, qui reflète sa maîtrise de la céramique, de la porcelaine, de la sculpture et de la peinture.
Son concept: combiner les volumes et la peinture. Les œuvres de Hinrich Kröger sont présentes dans de nombreux collections privées et publiques en Europe- et notamment au Parlement Allemand (Reichstag) ou aux Etats-Unis.

Hinrich Kröger opened his own showroom on in BERLIN -Mitte back in 1996, long before the area became known as the city’s gallery district. No two pieces are alike in his collection; each one is handcrafted and painstakingly painted.......In 2021, after 26 years, Hinrich Kröger moved his gallery and workshop to larger, brighter premises in the heart of Berlin-Schöneberg.
