Serge Strosberg (born in October, 1966) is a Belgian painter living in SOHO, NYC since 2008. His oil portraits have been featured at the Joods Historisch Museum in Amsterdam, The Norton House (West Palm Beach, Florida), the Musees de Pontoise,[1] and The Felix Nussbaum Haus in Osnabrück Germany,[2]

“Strosberg’s style combines Expressionism and Realism (visual arts). ”.[3] Initially inspired by German Expressionism and the School of London painters such as Lucian Freud, Strosberg’s portraits became those of an observer of NYC nightlife.[4] Strosberg also paints Soho's fashion models.

Born in 1966 in Antwerp, Belgium,Serge Strosberg moved to Paris where he was a student of Peter Knapp (fr), photographer for Vogue. Designer Jean-Paul Goude later evaluated Strosberg's thesis at the Ecole Superieure des Arts Graphiques, formerly Academie Julian. After taking Morphology classes at the École des Beaux-Arts, Strosberg went on to study privately with Joerg Hermle, a highly respected German Expressionist and art Professor, who taught him a technique of painting with oil and egg tempera.

Following graduation, Serge Strosberg wrote and illustrated a children's book entitled In the Kingdom of Dragons about Darwin.[5][6][7][8]

Strosberg illustrated another children's book entitled Rouquin des bois, about the importance of protecting Orangutan monkeys in Borneo.[9] Strosberg also illustrated a history and culture of corn in Guatemala aimed at children called Les Jardins du Mais.[10]

He painted portraits in Morocco, Japan and the UK. Among his important works is the installation, Genealogy, a representation of the struggle during the Inquisition. This series was exhibited at the French Senate, the Alliance française in Miami and the Joods Historisch Museum in Amsterdam. His Parisian series, Sins of Paris, is a contemporary reinterpretation of the Seven Deadly Sins starring actress and model Clemence Verniau.

Since Serge Strosberg moved to New York in 2008, the artist has become famous for painting and transforming all the fashion store windows surrounding his SoHo Studio and beyond. Whether through classical representation or multi-media installations, he is the quintessential observer of the evolution of a society.
