Hundertwasser's Magical Muliti-Coloured Paintings!

Today I am sharing with you an all time favourite artist of mine, Friedensreich Hundertwasser. The bold, bright colours and organic shapes are what instantly attract me to his work but on close up exploration the loose and inaccurate shapes, patterns and abstract detail fascinate me. 

Hundertwasser disliked and rejected straight lines, instead he commonly used and was fascinated with spirals. I particularly like how Hundertwasser used different paints in the same painting and combined them together, this enabled him to contrast both colours and textures. His work provides me with a great wealth of inspiration, I hope it inspires you too!


Hundertwasser is a famous contemporary Austrian painter who's work mainly focussed on architectural paintings from the early 1950s, however he also designed flags, stamps, coins, and posters. Hundertwasser carried a small set of paints with him whilst he travelled to enable him to capture anything that caught his eye, this was often on the road, on the train, in cafés and restaurants, even when he was meeting friends.
