In the early nineties, the trained technical draftsman went outdoors for the first time with a spray can, at that time still in his hometown Kreuztal near Siegen. Whether stencil, simple drawings, painted shadows, reworked advertising posters or larger colored images: Hoppek is constantly expanding his repertoire. His work also includes cardboard sculptures and indoor and outdoor installations, as well as drawings. He lives in Cologne, Berlin and currently Barcelona.

The making of the work, made exclusively for Direkte Auktion, can be found on the Direkte Auktion Youtube channel.
