I am Karl Krieger, collector, and dealer of Southeast Asian antique art by vocation.
The art bug bit me early on in life, when I was seventeen years old, searching the flea markets at the Turmweg and the old fish market in my native town of Hamburg, Germany.
At first, the fascination led me into an active trade of European antiques across the Channel with the dealers in London’s Bermondsey Street, and occasionally into the halls of Sotheby’s and Christie’s.
I later sealed my MBA in economics at Hamburg University with a paper on the international trade in art.
By 1989 I had ventured into Asia and developed an increasing interest in the beauty of its art. Extensive travels throughout Southeast Asia followed, and after seventeen years in the region. I now spend my time between Europe and, for the most part, the Far East.
