Born in 1964, Painter, Illustrator, Graphic Designer
When the Russian-German artist Robert Hettich came to Germany in 1988 in his mid-twenties, he was immediately able to assert himself on the market as a graphic designer. He had studied graphic arts, art and painting in Leninabad (now Khujand), Tajikistan. This education proved to be extremely solid because it laid emphasis on imparting basic artistic knowledge and mastering "handicraft" techniques. However, after studying at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hanover, he passed another diploma examination to become a graphic designer. This double training path may be one explanation for his great versatility.
Hettich works as a painter (oil, acrylic, watercolour), as an illustrator and in classical graphic design. His works are highly traded in collectors' circles because he combines technical perfection with creative originality.
