Hans is an award winning international artist, who trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen. Inspired by the CoBrA movement, he imbues his art with dynamic energy, stating, “Paintings with impact bring me pleasure. I strive to infuse a distinctive energy and character into my work to achieve excitement for myself and for others. If it goes unnoticed, it simply wasn’t worth (while) painting.”
To this day his work draws on its principals of complete freedom in color and form. Hans enjoyed a successful career as a graphic designer. His work brought him to the USA; first to New York City as creative director and partner in a design firm, later to Charlotte, NC, where he created marketing materials for the American Furniture Industry. In 2005, Hans picked up his brushes again as a full time painter, yet his graphic design background still forms the visual logic and bold compositional sense of his vibrant large scale canvases. You can see how he transforms the environment into patterns and textures that seem to dance on the canvas. In 2011, Hans was named a Top 50 Emerging Artist by Art Business News. Awards in 2012 include: Best Solo Artist, 2012 New York Art Expo, Featured Artist for Beaux Arts Festival, Coral Gables, Florida and Best Artist, 39th Annual Westport Fine Arts Festival. Representation by Barsky Gallery in Hoboken, NJ and Castle Fitzjohns Gallery in NYC.
