Krebber was born in 1954 in Cologne in Germany, his work is easy identified to abstract art in the materials, colors and concept, but focused a lot in the theory of art, questioning the purpose of the gesture, composition, even the public reception. Michael Krebber challenges also art to be free and experimental, claims that should not exist a signature appropriating the framework and so many other revolutions.
