Christian Hahn first wanted to become an illustrator. So he began studying at the Fachhochschule für Kommunikationsdesign in his native city Nürnberg, then moved on to Hamburg, where he decided to take painting at the Hochschule für bildende Künste (Visual Arts) in 1993. For many years the artist has been participating in numerous exhibitions in Germany, Belgium and France. Due to his unusual image compositions that he defamiliarieses by the aid of computers, strange new effects are created.
In 2006 Christian Hahn designed for Rosenthal studio-line the limited object "Anpfiff" and an espresso cup and saucer for the edition "Kunst in Porzellan".
