Harr Maass was born on the North Sea island of Wangerrooge. He has been described as a graphic artist, animal painter, nature painter, nature illustrator, wildlife artist or bird painter. None of these titles hit the mark, though they are extremely appropriate. This is because Maass is a frontier between detailed documentation and imaginative interpretation, between illustration graphic and painting, and between some surrealism and realism. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Kerkkunstschule Krefeld. After his graduation in 1962, he became an art director and a graphic designer. He is a lover and admirer, but at the same time, a critical admonition in nature. He's characterised by a special understanding of nature, which he acquired in his youth and later developed in many directions. He paints a wonderful variety of animal subjects- some portrait style, some in their natural habitates, and others like illustrations. With such versatility, he has managed to attract quite a number of clients. He started painting wildlife in 1987 but has worked as a freelance illustrator since 1974 and articles about him can be found in the U S Art and Wildlife Art magazine. The Christies auctions held in London from 1997 to 1999 had six of his paintings. Three of his paintings were published in Best of Wildlife Art II that was released in 1999. For years later he was accepted for the fifth time to be included in the Birds in Art show in Wausau, WI. Framed Harrow Maass art are today a common sight in many prestigious buildings around the world. His work is represented in the collections of the Alexander Koenig Museum, Germany, and the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau.
