Andreas Horstmann

Resident Artist Hydra Island Greece

Born in 1956, Andreas Horstmann is an autodidact artist with a German surname - and - a Greek first name. Since August 2016 Andreas spends most of his time on the island of Hydra and enjoys working/painting as an artist under the Greek sun.

His first “artistic touch“ came as he studied landscape gardening in his younger years. However, life is always full of surprises and he ended up working as a surveyor/camp manager and other interesting activities in different countries of the world such as Libya, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, the Sultanate of Oman, Mali/Timbuktu - and Germany.

 

In 2011 his “artistic touch“ came to life. He first started with sculptures and expended his work with paintings. He enhanced his knowledge by following a few workshops at the - “Akademie Wildkogel“ (Austria) - “Middelmann-Art Atelier“ (Munich/Fahrenzhausen/Germany) - "Art-Experimental-Atelier" (Hamburg/Luckau/Germany) - "Annette-Predeek-Atelier" (Remagen/Bonn/Germany).

Essentially an abstract painter he always tries (for him) new techniques such as swab and scraper as well as collages. As he has not a lot of experience on the "international stage of art":

  • 2013: a Joint exhibition of artists: "Art for Africa“ in the law firm Stöber, Berlin-Weissensee/Germany
  • 2014: a Joint exhibition of artists: Atelier Galerie TonArt AG, Hombrechtikon/Switzerland
  • 2017: a Joint exhibition of artists: Melina Mercury Hall, Hydra/Greece
  • 2017: Solo exhibition: Melina Mercury Hall, Hydra/Greece

Andreas is looking forward to his 2nd exhibition at the Melina Mercouri Hall from 6th - 12th August 2018 featuring his special guest at the piano - Panagiotis-Christos Aloupogiannis from Tripolis/Greece.

 

About Panagiotis-Christos AloupogiannisFrom 2000 - 2008 he studied at the Athenaeum Conservatory of AthensDiploma, Piano Performance. He will play 3 pieces in the first session (17'), two in the second (14-15'). These were composed 18 years ago, during his stay in Brussels. For the last session, he will play a new piece (10-11') which he started to compose last year and has now finished for its first public performance at Andreas' Exhibition - his masterpiece.

 

As a new resident of Hydra, Andreas is keen to meet everyone and so he cordially invites everyone to his second Hydra Exhibition to see his work and to say hello. The exhibition is under the direction of Dimitris Alexandros Fatouros.

 

 

One of his main hobbies was, and still is, traveling and exploring the world - looking for unique spots…

… and since August 2016 Andreas spends most of his time on one of these unique spots - the island of Hydra and enjoys working/painting as an artist under the Greek sun.
