I was born on February 20, 1988 in London / Westminster as the son of my German father Dr. rer. nat. Harald Hubbes and his French wife, Mireille. In 1991 we moved to Germany, and I spent my youth in Frankfurt and Cologne, where I graduated from the bilingual Gymnasium Kreuzgasse in 2008. During my school years I also spent a year at Glenalmond College in Scotland. This stay contributed significantly to my later decision to pursue a career as an artist. Before I finally decided to study art, I studied geophysics in Münster and mathematics in Cologne for a few semesters. When I enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Utrecht in 2013, I finally decided on art. I studied at HKU until May 2015 and then decided to develop my personal style independently. Today I live in Cologne and have my studio there.
About my Art
I paint in acrylic, oil, and watercolor, using multimedia elements. My pictures are an expression of my subconscious and I therefore like to call them “brooding pictures”. I don’t ignore anything: magic, horror, mysticism, symbols, fractals, the obvious, the hidden, life, transition, and death. In my pictures I try to approach the unspoken and enigmatic. This includes my concern for climate change and marine pollution. The overarching theme of my art could be “Fantastic Worlds” or “Psychedelic Moments”.
In doing so, I place high demands on the viewer. The viewer is constantly challenged by the “brooding pictures”, his eye never comes to rest, because he always discovers new motifs.
My pictures can be recognized immediately by their special style, and I am also in constant development in terms of motifs and technology.
