- Large-format, deserted industrial landscape in a rare relief technique.
- Böhringer's Critical Realism is reminiscent of Otto Dix, however, he overcomes his role model with surreal elements and a fascinating cool painting style.
- In 2018, ART magazine honored Böhringer's work, which is still underestimated, with an article titled "Begabt - besessen - vergessen" (Talented - possessed - forgotten).
- "It is high time that a work received the attention it deserves." (ART, September 2018, p. 18).
• Böhringer is a master of a brilliant, cool, dissecting painting in which he brings together realistic and surreal elements with great mastery.
• One of the rare works by Böhringer on the international auction market
