Biography: 

Fabian Hübner, born in 1982 in Freiburg, Germany, is a contemporary painter residing and working Stuttgart, Germany. Hübner creates an interplay of meaning within his characteristic microcosmos paintings of figures, motives, symbols and environments. 

Doing so, the German painter creates his own reality. Very often, this statement can be interpreted literally, as cardboard clouds on strings float in the air or wooden figures populate an imaginary landscape. 

As a result, the artist creates an alphabet of symbols he can arrange and rearrange into new compositions and therefore new analogies. The semiotics of the painting are designated by Hübner's set of motives as the structural element of meaning, questioning and representing the eternal uncertainty, relativity or even impossibility of what one perceives as 'reality' or 'the truth'. 

In 2011 Fabian Hübner received a recognition at the Camillo-Michele-Gloria-Preis before being selected as a finalist at the 44th Art Prize 2021 by Kulturstiftung der Sparkasse Karlsruhe.
