    The Life of Hannes Malte Mahler

    „This Mahler is essentially made up of three parts: Art, design and marketing. These worlds are linked by drawing. People draw all the time. People draw for fun. People draw to think and occasionally draw for money."

    The Oeuvre of Hannes Malte Mahler

    Hannes Malte Mahler's oeuvre is as colorful and multifaceted as his heraldic animal - the chameleon. The different techniques and materials alone are extremely diverse and include painting, drawing, photography, object and performance art, installations with and without "particles" made of Styrodur, doodles and other quisquilia. There are also digital drawings, which Mahler, exploring the tension between art and commerce, transferred to colorful T-shirts and cloth bags under the title "Mahlerwear. It is art". Hannes Malte Mahler's work lives on not only through the shirts offered by the feinkunst Verein and worn by friends of "Mahlerwear" around the world.
