Hans-Jürgen Kleinhammes ( November 16, 1937 in Augsburg – August 2008 there) was a German painter and graphic artist.

He studied from 1959 to 1961 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden, from 1961 to 1965 at the State University of Fine Arts in Hamburg with Thiemann, Mavignier and Wunderlich. In 1966 he went to Paris for a year on a grant (“ Cité Internationale des Arts ”).

From the mid-1960s he developed his visual language, which was reduced to landscape fragments and signet-like abstraction. (“…the representation is strongly objectified, but does not lack a surreal-poetic quality…”). He saw Caspar David Friedrich , René Magritte and Giogio de Chirico as his role models . From 1964 he titled his pictures with the term “New Landscape”, which he determined. At the same time, Werner Nöfer and Jens Lausen were working on a similar artistic program. In 1968 he was a co-founder of the CO-OP artists’ cooperative Hamburg , which wanted to switch off the art market with several graphic portfolio editions (members includedBruno Bruni , Dizi, Klaus Geldmacher , Dieter Glasmacher , Ullrich Hohenhaus, Tomislav Laux, Ernst Mitzka, Werner Nöfer, Sigmar Polke , Anna Oppermann , Wolfgang Oppermann , Peter Würtz).

In 1971 he received a teaching position at the Art Academy in Munich and from 1972 a guest lectureship at the Städel University in Frankfurt. In 1982 he received the “Water Lilies Prize for Fine Arts” from the city of Munich. From 1970 he realized several “public art projects” in Hamburg, Bamberg and Heidelberg. He has had many solo exhibitions over the years and has participated in numerous themed and group exhibitions. From 1973 to 1975 he had a studio in Eurasberg in the foothills of the Alps, and from 1976 in Munich. He died in Augsburg in 2008
