Trains and Boats and Planes is Stefan Kürten’s fourth solo show at the Chelsea-based gallery Alexander and Bonin. The subject of Stefan Kurten’s paintings are landscapes and interiors. Fragmented architectural details are woven together to form a tight pattern.
In addition to the paintings, Stefan Kürten presents his new series of lithographs, Plantinum Collection. An album of original songs written and performed by Stefan Kürten accompanies the six print portfolio co-published by Mike Karstens, Münster and Alexander and Bonin Publishing.
