CHRIS SUCCO

German born artist Chris Succo (1979- ) attended the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, where he was awarded Meisterschüler by Prof. Georg Herold in 2009, and the Royal College of Art, graduating from the latter in 2012. Succo is best known for his abstract paintings but works with a wide range of media, including sculpture and photography and has created an oeuvre that is coherent while being remarkably diverse. The base for Succo’s paintings often resembles, drawing, writing or calligraphy, a characteristic that evinces the significant influences of poetry and music in his work. His compositions explore the possibilities of abstract painting and bear characters of both immediacy and delicacy. Succo writes a storyline from one work to another that shares a quest for individuality within the elements of expression and refinement of forms and techniques. Succo sourced many of his artwork titles from the poetry book ‘The Price You Pay For Not Being Alone With Your Dying’ which he co-authored with his writer-friend Paul Wasserman in 2015; the Chinese translation version is published in 2018 by Whitestone Gallery. The artist is currently living and working in Düsseldorf, Germany.
