Friedensreich Hundertwasser Biography


Friedensreich Hundertwasser was an Austrian-born New Zealand artist and architect who also worked in the field of environmental protection.

Hundertwasser stood out as an opponent of “a straight line” and any standardization, expressing this concept in the field of building design.

Hundertwasser’s original and unruly artistic vision expressed itself in pictorial art, environmentalism, philosophy, and design of facades, postage stamps, flags, and clothing (among other areas). The common themes in his work utilised bright colours, organic forms, a reconciliation of humans with nature, and a strong individualism, rejecting straight lines.
