Biography from Peyton Wright Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The son of an Austrian father and a Swiss mother, Hans Hinterreiter was born in Winterthur, Switzerland in 1902. He studied mathematics and architecture in college, at the University of Zurich; simultaneously, he studied art and music. This marriage of geometry and visual arts practices inspired Hinterreiter throughout his long career.
In his twenties, Hinterreiter traveled extensively throughout Europe. He was influenced by the quality of light and by the colors of Italy. A trip to Spain inspired an interest in Moorish architecture and ornamentation. The onset of the Spanish Civil War in the mid-1930s forced Hinterreiter’s return to Switzerland, where he concentrated on writing and painting.
Hinterreiter settled permanently in Ibiza, Spain, following his wife Mina’s death. There he enjoyed the lifestyle and culture, and devoted himself to his artistic career. His belief that shape and line could be manipulated to express beauty is wonderfully evidenced in his meticulous abstractions. As early as 1963, Hinterreiter began to incorporate new computer technology into his art-making processes.

The work of Hans Hinterreiter was widely exhibited in his lifetime, and was featured in major exhibitions at The Kunstmuseum Winterthur in Winterthur, Switzerland, The Josef Albers Museum in Bottrop, Germany, and The Guggenheim Museum in New York, New York. In 1985, the Hans Hinterreiter Foundation was founded in Vaduz, Lichtenstein and is now stationed in Zurich. His work continues to be exhibited nationally and abroad.
