Thanks to his large experience in the field of music, he has the strong belief that art is a broad system in which all specific art languages are mingling and converting, seeking mutual consent in their way of representing the world. Therefore, it was just a small step for him to dedicate himself exclusively to the visual arts. As an art curator and art dealer, he has organized different and important events such as the Multimedia Art Dialogue at the Main Palais, in Frankfurt in 2012, the Rolls Royce participation at the São Paulo Art Fair, in Brazil 2014, with a special stand supporting art and its relation with industry and craftsmanship; and, again, Rolls Royce presence in the Berlin Gallery Weekend 2015 with a special show at its place of business on the prestigious Kurfürstendamm.
In 2013, together with Alexander Stöckle, CEO of the Prolab Fotofachlabor, he founded the Stöckle Hauser Gallery in Stuttgart, dedicated to the best of modern and contemporary art and, with a special interest in the publishing of first-class art books that are related to the exhibitions being in progress at the gallery or as special single projects.
He showed artists like: Helena Almeida, Peter Krauskopf, Bernard Plossu, Florian Süssmayer, Regina Silveira, Ana Maria Tavares, Manuel Vilarino etc.
