Hans Weiss

Hans Weiss has been drawing and painting all of his life. As a young boy living in a German Village, Malthern (Zips) in Slovakia, he showed a great talent in art. Many of his paintings were exhibited throughout the region. At the age of thirteen he was granted a commission for the first time.

Because of the Second World War all of his early paintings and drawings were lost. He and his family were placed in a concentration camp. After one year there they were sent to live in Eastern Germany. Then, at the age of fourteen, Hans started to paint again, using brushes made from his mother’s hair.

At the age of eighteen Hans came to the United States where he attended various art schools in Connecticut.

Many of his drawings and paintings are a reflection of his travel experiences in the United States including Alaska, and in Europe, Egypt, India, Mexico and many interesting islands and of his early child hood.

His favorite subjects are the past life of his own people from his small village in Slovakia and other ethnic cultures including the American Indians. The media he works in are: oil, Watercolor, Pen and Ink, and Pencil.
