Volker Bohringer (1912 - 1961) was a German visual art painter and printmaker of the New Objectivity.
He began his studies in 1929 at the Wurttemberg State School of Applied Arts in Stuttgart at Ernst Schneidler.
In 1930 he moved to the Academy and continued his studies as a master student, Hans Spiegel. 
In the era of National Socialism in 1937, he refused to join the Association of German painter and graphic artist, and subsequently received an exhibition prohibition. After the Second World War, he attended the First German Art Exhibition in Dresden in part. It was followed by exhibition participation in Bern and Zurich. In 1960 he had his first solo exhibition in Esslingen.
