Born 1958 on the island of Lindau on Lake Constance, Haubi Haubner lives and works in Freiburg (GER). Experience in street art, graffiti in the 1980s followed by completed training as a screen printer and designer. Intensive exploration of graphic art, drawing and illustration since 2016. Ink, acrylic and spray can mostly on paper. With his first two series, he developed the independent aesthetic that characterizes his work from influences of cave painting, Egyptian hieroglyphics and street art. Partially he shows a kind of urban archaic sign language within all series. This can appeal to people regardless of culture and language and stimulate communicative impulses.
Followed by its ICON, a pop culture hybrid filled with the philosophy of yin and yang. Inspired by pop art, surrealism, urban art and new contemporary art, an extensive world of ideas is created around the ICON. A continuous, creative metamorphosis, also as a digital NFT ICON, which found a home at kalamint.io/user/haubihaubner. The philosophical considerations and questions, which are implemented graphically, are intended to encourage people to develop their own perspectives. An invitation to introspection. In addition to international art exhibitions, his motives can be found on signature skateboards, film posters, t-shirts, street stickers and more. For free and without payment Haubi Haubner works as a graphic artist for several international peace organizations (NGOs). “ART is one of the most important forces for an open society”.
