Fabian Treiber (b. 1986, Ludwigsburg Germany) is an artist based in Stuttgart, Germany. He studied fine art at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design. The artist has dedicated himself formally speaking to the subject of the interior in his paintings, using it to question subjective projections and our perception of reality. Treiber particulary makes decisions in his paintings formally and not narratively. In so doing, he provokes a conscious break, thus declaring what is supposedly false as the very quality of painting, with the effect that his works somehow might seem not quite right, but are just right.
He was awarded the Karl Schmidt-Rottluff Scholarship for his work up to 2018 and was granted by the Kunsthalle Nürnberg with the Marianne Defet Painting Scholarship the same year. In 2021 he is a finalist for the Große-Hans-Purrmann Prize. His works have already been shown in solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Nürnberg; Kunstverein Ludwigsburg; Museum zu Allerheiligen, Schaffhausen; Ruttkowski;68 Gallery, Cologne and Paris; KANT Gallery, Copenhagen, Haverkampf Leistenschneider Gallery, Berlin and Galerie Mark Müller, Zurich. Further in group exhibitions at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf; Villa Merkel Galerien der Stadt Esslingen a.N.; Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden; Kunstverein Speyer, Arts Projects Australia, Melbourne; CFHILL Art Space, Stockholm, König Gallery, Berlin, Nino Mier Gallery, Los Angeles and Kunstverein Lüneburg. Upcoming exhibitions include: Group exhibition at Galerie Mark Müller, Zurich and solo presentations at Anat Ebgi Gallery, Los Angeles and Ruttkowski;68 Gallery, Dusseldorf and Public Gallery of Ostfildern (Stuttgart, DE) in 2023.
