Alexander Friedmann-Hahn was born in Hamburg, the son of an art dealer. He completed a training in marketing.[1] In 1994 his paintings were shown in the foyer of the offices of the Berliner Zeitung.[2][better source needed]

His work received nationwide recognition on the occasion of the tenth commemoration of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1999.
