Michael Gregor was born on September 30, 1964 in Essen. He completed a training as a printer and since then also has been active in the graphic arts sector. Besides, since 2014, he has lived and worked as a freelance artist in Cologne.
Michael Gregor’s painting is naturalistic and dedicated to everyday views: the landscape, the hustle and bustle of the city and cityscapes. They seem like an excerpt from a story to which the viewer may think the rest. By visually pausing the stories in their respective place, his pictures receive a magical glow, a silence and tranquility that at the same time has a decelerating effect. Striking is his interest in detail. In his pictures, beauty, the care of execution and the bringing together of many details seem to merge into a whole.
Michael Gregor has been represented by LDXArtodrome Gallery since 2019.
