Karl-Heinz Hansen or Hansen-Bahia. Born in Hamburg in 1915 and one of the most unusual Expressionist woodcutters and painters of the second half of the 20th century, he turned to woodcuts as a self-taught artist from 1947 onwards, creating series of woodcuts and loose sheets with religious and contemporary content. In 1949 he emigrated to Brazil. First he was an artistic advisor to a publishing house in São Paulo and also had some major exhibitions. In the mid-1950s, he moved to Salvador-Bahia, which became his second home. Famous Brazilian novelist Jorge Amado added "Bahia" to Hansen's name as a tribute. Here, where he lived among fishermen, sailors, merchants and beggars, receiving essential artistic impulses, he printed his woodcuts on a small hand press. - His unmistakable technique, which made him one of the most important German woodcutters of the post-war period, came from tireless work on the log. In 1959 he returned to Germany for three years before becoming a professor at the Art Academy Addis Ababa/Ethiopia in 1963. From here he returned permanently to Bahia in 1965 and acquired Brazilian citizenship. However, the connection with his native country was never completely broken. Extensive retrospectives took place in 1971/72, for which the artist visited Germany and for the last time on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Karl Heinz Hansen-Bahia died in 1978 in São Paulo/Brazil.
