After training as a decoration painter, Karl Otto Hy started his education in fine art at the Wiesbaden School for the Applied Arts in 1924. In 1928-29, Hy studied at the Mainz School for the Applied Arts, where he devoted himself to printmaking and other media. From 1930 he freelanced as an artist and showed work at numerous exhibitions. In 1980 he was represented with work alongside Alois Erbach, Conrad Felixmüller and Alexei von Jawlensky at the important exhibition “Wiesbadener Künstler aus 3 Generationen” [“Three Generations of Wiesbaden Artists”].
