Deininger, who is a highly regarded and collected fine art painter, credits his success on canvas is a direct result (and linked to) his background in abstract art. Deininger, widely known as the artist who turns (recycles) junk into fine art installations, has produced museum scale installations which are then collected by corporations and high profile collectors worldwide.
