Influenced by the legacy of Symbolists such as James Ensor and Edvard Munch, Richter combines motifs from art history, mass media and pop culture to create idiosyncratic, surreal worlds. These can sometimes be read in political terms, as in works that reference themes of immigration or surveillance, but they evade any single interpretation. He uses vivid chromatic contrasts and abstracted patterning to convey a disquieting emotional tenor, heightened by the temporal and spatial indeterminacy of scenes that refuse to resolve into a coherent time, place, or even pictorial space.

The German artist Daniel Richter first came to prominence in the 1990s when he transitioned into fine art from the world of music, where he began his career designing posters and record sleeves for bands. His early paintings were abstract, characterised by intensely colourful forms that lie somewhere between graffiti and intricate ornamentation. Figures began appearing in his works around 2002, often inspired by reproductions from newspapers or history books and rendered in bright colours that create an atmosphere of heightened awareness and artificiality. Ever the innovator, his recent works tread a path between figuration and abstraction, typified by the chaotic entanglements of fragmented bodies against simplified chromatic backgrounds.
