Hauser created powerfully saturated crayon and pencil drawings and much of his imagery is manifestly sexual in content. According to Navratil, Hauser's drawings changed according to his mental state. In manic phases he would produce large, vibrant and more complex images, whilst his depressive state would bring darker images, tending towards the abstract-geometric. Considered one of the most important of the Gugging artists, Hauser created the blue star that serves as the logo of the Haus der Künstler. His works have been shown since the early 1970s throughout Europe, and more recently at international venues such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Setagaya Art Museum, Tokyo, and the Neues Museum Weserburg, Bremen.
