Hans Andreas (Fürstenfeld 1947) first completed an apprenticeship as a chemigrapher in graphic arts. Since 1978 he has been working as a freelance painter. In expressive paintings with strong ductus and pastose application of color, Hans Andreas devotes himself mainly to landscape painting, but also interior scenes and portraits. Influenced by Austrian Expressionism, the artist developed an independent and distinctive work. Through dynamic colors and the spontaneity of the brushstroke, he creates exciting images with character and depth.
