born the 19th of June 1939 at Eferding/Upper Austria.
He began his artistic instruction with studies of graphic arts for every day use at the school of arts and crafts at Linz/Danube, followed by painting and graphic art at the Academy of Arts in Munich.
In 1958 his first political caricatures appeared in the «Simplicissimus»; from this moment on Haitzinger was a constant collaborator of this periodical.
Since the conclusion of his studies at the academy Haitzinger works self-employed as painter and caricaturist for many well-known newspapers and periodicals. He works and lives in Munich.
A selection of his political caricatures will be presented in the Strieffler-Haus der Künste.
