Born on the island of Lindau on Lake Constance in 1958, Haubi Haubner lives and works in Freiburg (GER). He is experienced in crafting street art, graffiti in the 1980s and finished training as a textile print pattern designer and screen printer. After a serious accident and operation on both shoulders, he began drawing graphics in order to regain the mobility of his hands in 2016. His hand drawn and sprayed ink and acrylic images have been affected by pop art, surrealism, contemporary art, street art & urban art influences. His distinctive style and multi-layered selection of topics have always allowed him to discuss not only philosophical aspects but also socio-political themes. The idea of peace, environmental pollution, digital media, self–discovery, life in our consumer society and life itself and after all infinity/finiteness. Relevant and timeless at once. Haubi Haubner's art is seen internationally and also in print media, on web media (Instagram @ICONseee), art prints, signature skateboards, t-shirts, street stickers, buttons and postcards. “ART is one of the most important forces for an open society”.
