|Though born and educated in West Germany, Hubert Wackermann is more than qualified to depict his favorite subject matter: the North American Indian, his natural surroundings and relevant wildlife. He became interested in the North and South American Indians at an early age. Numerous trips to the United States, Canada and Mexico in the early 70's provided opportunities for research. Upon immigration to Canada in 1979, Wackermann lived for a year on the Six Nations Iroquois Reservation in Southern Ontario. After marriage, he and his wife moved to Puerto Rico where the artist studied the Indians of the Caribbean area, the Caribe, and Wackermann produced more than thirty paintings.
Hubert Wackermann trained for three years at the George Westermann Printing Office in Braunschweig, West Germany. Fours years of study at the Art Academy in Dusseldorf followed, plus an additional year as a Master Student to gain certification as an art teacher. Wackermann's work is executed in acrylics, gouache, watercolor and oil. He is a master in all medias, with the prime characteristic of his canvases being exquisite detail and the constantly changing hues of nature's colors.
