About The Artwork

Arriving in Shanghai I stayed at a medium range older hotel that was a 15 story building near the industrial port. Quite interesting in that I had to talk the manager into letting me on the roof. He was reticent as thinking I might do some devious damage or worse yet jump! Ha! At anyrate I really enjoyed seeing the activity below! Wow, a hum drum of busy port activity and as few small factories below were pumping out smoke and ash! China is still not compliant on a world pollution basis: they openly dump stuff! It started to drizzle and as I finished another 'wet' oil painting I was pleased to view it the next morning, as it was a neat snapshot of my early evening roof top adventure. I'd bought a small pocket radio the day before that had world band reception and I'd listened to the BBC news in delight as I painted.

FEBRUARY 2020: Work is now in the US Dept of State Art in Embassy Collection. Simply stated: I like to create many things. Painting is a real pleasure because I can translate an image, in my view, the way I'd like to see it in oil onto a board. I've always painted. I've been an 'artist/designer' all my life. In '64 I won the coveted Robert C.J. Traub Memorial Scholarship to study art in Europe. At eighteen I left the US a single language speaker and toured Europe via coach, train and plane. Of course it makes an impact on a young person. At that time, Europe was somewhat copacetic and comfortable with American tourists. Knowing I'd be back, I left with ambition and drive to start a life in the fine art/design business. After university I began working the the allied design fields including Urban, Automotive and Product. Having a full passion for 3D works, I continued to create in both metals (jewelry as well as 2 D works. My Jewelry designs are currently involved with expressive automotive shapes that reflect aeroforms of late 60's 70's. Having won awards in the jewelry world I am inspired to create high content gold jewelry on a contractual basis. I won an award in 2008 at the International Housewares show for a (patented design) tea kettle. My inspiration was a simple fortune cookie that I developed(yet with out commerical success, the design sits on the shelf.) Collections: Hans J.
