ABOUT HANNES HARRS

Hannes Harrs was inspired as a child in Germany by the African artefacts given to him by his uncle, a ship’s captain. Harrs moved to South Africa in 1950 aged 23 and studied at the Johannesburg School of Arts and Crafts.  Giving up a career in advertising in the 1960’s, Harrs followed the artistic inspiration that he found in Kuba textiles and the shapes, colours and implements from the continent that he subsequently visualised. Like Guenther van der Reiss, Larry Scully and Bettie Cilliers – Barnard, Harrs developed an abstract aesthetic previously missing in South African art, that recalled aspects of Africa through motifs. In the 1960’s this was considered highly avant – garde in South Africa.

Harrs was exhibited extensively in his lifetime including shows at the Absa Bank Gallery in Johannesburg in 2003, The Raats Museum in Germany, The National Gallery of Windhoek and Biennale’s in the 1970’s in Brazil and Italy amongst others. Works can be found in all major South African public collections, the Eckernforde Museum in Germany and the Richemont Collection in Zug, Switzerland.
