Born in Damascus, Syria to a German father and a Syrian mother, Hans was raised around the world, residing for long stretches of his youth in Marseille, France; Bonn, Germany; Beirut, Lebanon; Ankara, Turkey; Montreal, Quebec; and most recently Beverly Hills, California. Though Hans has had no formal art training, he has been doodling ever since he was ten and in the last eleven years has forged a unique style from his innate talent, worldly experiences and a passion for music. He is particularly drawn to Heavy Metal and Goth, his idol being guitar legend Yngwie Malmsteen. Hans' art sensibilities have been strongly influenced by Japanese artists, especially Go Nagai (Devilman) and Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball). A Midnight Opera is his first published work.
