Due to an early connection to art in my childhood I started off with graffiti at the age of 12. Various writing styles, comic figures, color and composition were the main aspects at the beginning.
As I as travelling through Australia in 2013, an abstract, illustrative style developed. This built the foundation for the basic idea behind “Hans From Space”.
Influences: surrealism, art nouveau, street art, psychedelic art
In the following years, I was able to expand this knowledge. I gained experience in the general organization and art direction of the event series “Schnick Schnack”, which lasted about 5 years. This platform laid the foundation to create conceptual artwork, decoration, printed flyers, online banners, handwriting styles, promotional stickers, and more.
In 2018, I founded the independent company “Hans From Space Craft”. Meanwhile, I create individual designs for different media (personal tattoo sketches, graffiti & wall design, canvas, print & digital art, general design inquiries).
My family is running a printery, so there is a great access to diverse high-quality paper and textile prints.
The interaction of diverse media represents a main aspect of my work, This principle is also shown with the “Color Fading” artworks.
