Sebastian Spreng’s DRESDEN depicts the decimation of this beautiful eastern German city by Allied bombers in February 1945, and is a meditation on mankind’s infinite capacity for both good and evil. Despite the stark messaging of the images in the DRESDEN project, the 61 works, created on an iPad, have an undeniably lyrical, painterly quality due, in part, to Spreng’s deep knowledge of and passion for classical music; he infuses his paintings with the spirit of his preferred composers.
Born in Argentina, Spreng’ is a self-taught artist and music journalist, he has exhibited in Boston, Seattle, Atlanta, Toronto, Caracas, Munich, Osaka, Tokyo, Panama, Italy and Miami among other cities.
