BIO

MONTEIRO HASSE WAS BORN IN ZURICH IN 1987. THE FAMILY MOVED TO SOUTH AFRICA,

WHICH WAS A VERY COLORFUL AND POSITIVE CHILDHOOD.

IN THE LATE 90’S, THEY LIVED ON THE ISLE OF MALLORCA FOR A WHILE, BEFORE GOING BACK TO HOMETOWN HAMBURG FROM WHERE HE LEFT SOON FOR BOARDING SCHOOL.

 

AFTER GRADUATING, MONTEIRO STUDIED INTERIOR DESIGN IN LONDON, COMMUNICATION DESIGN IN BERLIN AND PRODUCT DESIGN IN ESSEN. THEN, FOR OVER A YEAR, HE TOOK OFF TO START A WORLD TRIP, TO EXPAND HIS PASSION FOR NATURE AND CULTURE.

 

WHEN HE CAME BACK TO EUROPE, MONTEIRO DECIDED TO BECOME AN ARTIST THROUGH WHICH HE COULD EXPRESS HIS THOUGHTS AND EXPERIENCES. 

THESE IMPRESSIONS AND OBSERVATIONS WERE SO STRONG AND FORMATIVE THAT HIS WAY OF PROCESSING THEM WAS THROUGH PAINT.

 

HIS ART IS A MULTIFACETED WORLD FULL OF COLORFUL CHILDHOOD MEMORIES AND VARIOUS LIFE EVENTS,

THAT HAVE STRONGLY INFLUENCED HIM.

HE USES A LOT OF PAINT TO CREATE DIFFERENT LAYERS SO THAT THE VIEWER CAN HAVE A DEEPER PERSPECTIVE.

THERE ARE NO BOUNDARIES IN THE WORLD OF ART AND THIS IS WHAT MADE HIM FOLLOW HIS PASSION.

MONTEIRO’S WORK IS ON THE PULSE OF TIME, IS INNOVATIVE, CULTURALLY RELEVANT AND ENERGETIC. 

IT CONNECTS PEOPLE, CULTURE AND FEELINGS.

 

TWO WORLDS FASCINATE MONTEIRO THE MOST: 

FLUFFY TOYS TO EXPRESS HIS WAY OF SHOWING POSITIVE VIBES, CHILDHOOD MEMORIES, HAPPY MOTIVES AND ADDRESSES A LIGHT-HEARTED TOPIC.

HIS PORTRAITS SHOW THAT BEAUTY LIES IN IMPERFECTION.

HE'S CURRENTLY BASED BETWEEN MUNICH AND PARIS.
