Galerie Poll is displaying his work focused on the cityscape and Berlin still lives. The artist resided in a divided Berlin in 1957/8.

Kraemer’s work belongs to the school of German realism. In his paintings, perspectives are manipulated, and objects often overlap. The shapes he paints often have rounded corners and with dark shadows. His paintings of people are not beautiful, but rather feature individuals with plump features and ominous, dark oversized eyes.
