Hans grew up on Cape Cod and owned and operated his own mural business there for ten years, with 138 murals to his credit. He has painted since he was six years old and graduated in 1999 from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn with a BFA in Graphic Design. Hans has traveled the country for both commercial and residential mural commissions, including murals for 2 episodes of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" that aired in spring of 2008 on ABC. Hans also loves teaching and has led 8 youth projects where he oversaw large scale public murals painted entirely by students of all ages, working with Cape schools and more recently with ArtsLink, a Cape based non-profit youth arts foundation.
Hans happily returned to Brooklyn however in 2010 to follow his dream of opening his own studio / gallery. He is featuring his paintings and that of other artists whose work he admires, splitting his time between managing the gallery in the front and working on his own series of new paintings in his back studio. Hans’ next series of paintings will be a stylized and bold portrait of his beloved Formula 1, paintings that convey the speed, glamour, history, cutting edge technology, opulence, and passion of the sport. He has a vision of large paintings portraying a red Ferrari cutting through the streets of Monaco…or 2008 champion driver Lewis Hamilton’s chrome McLaren reflecting the bright lights from the night race in Singapore. Formula One is the most capital intensive and globally popular sport in the world and will blend two of Hans’ greatest loves – racing and painting, taking his work to the next level.
