Dirty Hans is an original Painter & Illustrator that's specialises in High Impact Contemporary Urban Art. A Self-taught artist, born Liverpool/England.

Seeing the work of artist such as Roy Lichtenstein and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec works strongly influenced his painting style. Living in Antwerp for 7 years with travelling experiences have influenced his techniques giving him enthusiasm to focus his energies in simplifying paintings in a bold, fresh way. Inspiration for his work has come from many things, the imagery of the 1950`s culture, movies, Comic books, pulp-magazines travelling and studying more traditional contemporary artists. He paints with acrylics, spray paint on canvas and has produced pop art and renaissance pieces now branching into the "Digital art Media" Dirty Hans has exhibited in Antwerp/Brussels/Toronto/Paris/Berlin/Miami and now exploring the digital arts, featured twice in the Daily Mirror newspaper and Appearances on Tele2 (French Morning TV) with a mention in NY times.com and more.
