Axel Crieger

American-German artist and photographer Axel Crieger brings together a range of elements and ideas to create singular theatrical images, each with its own unique overtones of decadence, danger or desire.

Crieger’s work is by turns thought-provoking and amusing with its unexpected juxtapositions creating a curious and compelling narrative – what Entertainment Weekly (New York) described as ‘the grammar of glamour.” His latest collection is inspired by some of the luxury brands that he has worked with over the years, particularly one of the most iconic and beautiful; the classic Chanel No.5 bottle.

Taking the classic bottle designed over 100 years ago by Coco Chanel herself as his starting point, Crieger follows in the footsteps of Andy Warhol and adds to the myth surrounding this timeless brand. Each glossy and glamorous interpretation places the bottle at the heart of a story we can all recognise and offers a surreal slant on the cultural landscape.
