Biography / Dome

Dome, also known as Christian Krämer from Karlsruhe began his artistic career with spray cans in 1994 and developed to become one of the best-known German street artists. His works are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect“.

Illustrator and street artist Dome lives and works in Karlsruhe and started with graffiti at the age of 20 in the mid 90s. While a broader palette of colours characterized his early artworks, he later changed his style when he started studying at the Academy of Arts and is today known for his monochrome works that combine and merge between the realistic and surrealistic world. Dome’s focus shifted to drawing with ink in 2010, but the materials and backgrounds are still diverse. He uses ink, paint, paper, spray cans to create drawings, sculptures, objects or huge black and white murals, always examining the human or animal body, or both combined, in a mysterious, surrealistic manner.
