Andy Hahn, a St. Louis native, describes himself as a Contemporary Abstract Artist. He uses texture and color to explore emotion while maintaining an aesthetic integrity. Hahn usually begins with thin layers of acrylic paint, laying darker pigment over lighter pigment. He then begins his process of manipulating and often removing paint to expose the light hidden within. To do this, Hahn uses his own hands, rags, or non-traditional materials.

Fun Fact: Subtractive art is a method of taking away material to display the final product. Similar practices have been used throughout time – from ancient Grecian friezes to the more modern Erased de Kooning by Robert Rauschenberg

Erased de Kooning, Robert Rauschenberg, 1953
