L isa Kränzler, born in Ravensburg in 1983, studied painting and graphic arts at the Karlsruhe Art Academy since 2005. In 2012 she completed her studies as a master student under Tatjana Doll. The artist has also been active as a writer since 2012 and has achieved remarkable success with her novels.

In the field of visual arts, she devotes herself to painting and drawing. Kränzler creates her large-format representational paintings, entirely from paint, whereby the proximity to the cartoon is clear. She uses varnish, a conventional painting color, which she applies to paper. “As far as painting is concerned, Kränzler is preoccupied with undermining its convention. She pursues this preoccupation with impudence and ruthlessness, but without naiveté.” Her drawings can be seen as a connecting element between visual art and writing, “as in them there is a constant jumping back and forth between texts and images, applied colors and typewritten letters, or the visible and the legible.” (Quotes: Ulrich Loock 2016)
