Born in Nuremberg, Germany, Astrid Krehan’s original works convert modern-day spaces and objects into highly saturated color images. Her flowing series often verges on the abstract, whether capturing the tranquility of the rural countryside or the vibrant aura of major cities like Shanghai, where Astrid has lived and worked since 2014. A doctor of natural sciences, Astrid reveals a compassionate understanding of the living world. Her contemporary China series have been regularly exhibited in Shanghai since 2017 and at PHOTOFAIRS, Shanghai in 2018 with Gallery 12 and 2021 with ArtCN Gallery.
Her 2020 series "熵 ENTROPY" and "静默之声 SILENT MESSAGE" have been displayed in Shanghai at ArtCN Gallery, Sino Art Space and the 2021 BFC ART FESTIVAL Shangai (ArtCN Gallery) both in solo and group exhibitions. In her recent exhibition "从一朵云，到另一朵云 FROM ONE CLOUD TO ANOTHER" a dual exhibition at Diyuan Art Gallery in Jiaxing, Zhejiang, she cooperated with Chinese artist 陈春妃Chen Chunfei (Kunga) in an artistic dialogue that crosses geographical and cultural boundaries. The artist currently works and lives in Swtizerland.
