Guido Häfner

Guido Häfner was born in Upper Franconia, Germany, in 1968 and studied at the Technical University of Munich, among other institutions. Since 1995 he has been working as a freelance sculptor and graphic artist and has collaborated on numerous projects with his brother Johannes under the name Häfner + Häfner. At art Karlsruhe 2010, their joint sculptural and printmaking special show attracted interest and was purchased by numerous collectors.

Throughout Germany, there are works by the artist shown in public spaces. Guido Häfner's masterly handling of steel combines surreal and abstract elements. He creates figures whose cultural context he deliberately leaves open.
