Hans-Günter Höffken

freelance artist



I use art to express my ideas and feelings about the “invisible”. This means for me to make the unknown alive. I mainly get my inspiration from travelling the world. After having studied geography and taking extensively photographs during my journeys I started to paint. The art of painting has turned my world upside down. After exploring unique landscapes and different cultures around the world, I finally found a way to express myself. In particular, the Asian philosophies are a source for my creativity. The Himalayan Mountains in Tibet showed me an incredible beauty in its purity. In my first paintings I tried to capture this clarity and serenity. I have been working with big canvases ever since. The grandness gives me space to show the simplicity and essence of life.


In 2015 I was selected by Saatchi Art curators to be presented as one of Berlin Artists in Spotlight on Berlin
