When Hallauer started studying fine arts in 1986, one of the topics he particularly focused on was the drawing and painting of the human body placed in different pictural spaces.
During study visits to London, Paris and Venice he had the opportunity to draw sketches of paintings by Tiepolo, Tintoretto, Rubens and other painters. Since then his artwork has been influenced by the baroque handling of human figures.
Although the figurative works have been dominating until today, abstract paintings have come into being, too.
At first sight, Hallauer´s work seems to be divided into three independent work groups:
Many images show mythological influences, others show nudes and human figures either „floating“ or surrounded by shapes and colours which might evoke impressions of nature or architecture, and some are abstract paintings.
At second glance, however, the connecting links between his works are clearly discernible: the distinctive handwriting influenced by rhythms and patterns of music and the fascination with nature and the world as one Cosmic whole.
Hallauer lives and works as an internationally selling artist, art teacher and musician in Saarbrücken, close to the French border.
At times when Hallauer is not exhibiting his artworks he is concerned with the projects of his band THE ORANGE FOREST.
