Biography

Jörg Döring, freelance artist, was born in the mid-60s in the Ruhr area. Already in early youth, motivated by a fostered interest in art, he created his first paintings. In 1986 his first professional studio is established in Essen, from 1988 his works are shown in regional exhibitions. In 1995 his studio moves to Düsseldorf, national and international presentations at art fairs and in galleries ensure a steadily growing level of awareness. Early works of Döring are characterized by historical highlights of Pop Art of the 60s and 70s, the thematic presence in the parental home affected his work. Iconic personalities, revolutionary characters, comic book, Marvel and brand stories, advertising claims, headlines, typographies... Aesthetic worlds that always surrounded Döring are continuously present, were and are used by the artist as raw material to develop and counteract his own time-defining stories on canvas. This versatile approach remains at the core of his daily work to this day. From the mid-1990s, Döring adds the technique of serigraphy to his work, in addition to oil painting, which he has consistently practiced to date, and which forms a focal point of his extensive oeuvre in the years that follow. Since 2010, he has devoted himself intensively to the work on collages, which are also used as a supplement or substructure for oil paintings. The blending and linking of the different, visual disciplines is the basis for the creative processes, which always combine anew and consciously exclude routine. Over the creative process of the artist, a multilayered mixture of material, technique, reflection and ambiguity has emerged. Some original elements are constantly carried along and can be traced as a line. Many expanding facets were added in the course of the artistic activity. In Döring's doing and being everything is constantly in transformation.... In three decades JD has developed an independent, vital visual language with original references and perspectives on the complex and complicated everyday world. His pictorial œuvre formulates itself aesthetically fine-nerved and pleasurable, as well as with all balance and splendor of the works, in the depth ideally and meaningfully charged. JD lives and works in Meerbusch near Düsseldorf, his artistic work has been shown in over 250 exhibitions, including in Munich, Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin and Frankfurt, London, Zurich, Luxembourg, Stockholm, Basel, Paris, New Delhi, Los Angeles and Miami.
