Hauk studied from 1918 to 1923 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna under Jungwirth, Sterrer and Delug and exhibited in 1920 for the first time as part of a joint exhibition of the association of artists and art lovers of the "Ring" in Linz. From 1923 Hauk commuted between Linz and Vienna and worked as a freelance artist. He repeatedly exhibited at the Vienna Secession, the Hagenbund and the Maerz Artists' Association, of which he was a member. From 1927 to 1938 Hauk was a member of the Hagenbund and was later able to work and exhibit without being bothered by the Nazi regime. Between 1943 and 1945 he was drafted into military service. In 1947 he took over the directorship of the art school in Linz and led a master class for painting there until 1951. He exhibited regularly in Vienna and Linz in the 1950s and 1960s. In 1959, the Upper Austrian State Museum organized the collective exhibition "Hauk-Dimmel-Hofmann" with over 40 of Hauk's works. After the war, he mainly worked as a designer of frescoes, mosaics and murals that can be found on over 50 public buildings, mainly in Linz and Vienna.
