Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser was a charismatic painter, designer, and architect, one of the most prominent Austrian artists of modern time. The key elements of his art are intensive colors and forms that represent the beauty of nature.
When talking about the architectural creations of this Viennese artist, the emphasis is placed on the irregular forms, the use of natural materials, the afforestation of roofs, colorful facades, mosaics that decorate everything – walls and floors, staircases and railings, furniture and details in the space.
One of the popular architectural landmarks of Vienna, Austria, is the Hundertwasser-Krawina House (“Das Hundertwasser-Krawina Haus”), designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Joseph Krawina and Peter Pelikan.
The Hundertwasser Village – the Shopping Center of Modern Art is located across the street from the Hundertwasser-Krawina House.
The Hundertwasser Museum (“Das Museum Hundertwasser”), part of the Kunst Haus Wien, presents the unique artistic world of Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
The exterior and the interior of the museum are modeled on the principle of nature. The colors, materials, and shapes create a playful space that is in harmony with nature.
At the entrance, there is a beautiful fountain made of eleven types of stone brought from Europe, Africa, Australia, and South America.
Nature was Hundertwasser’s great inspiration. In numerous speeches and public appearances, he spoke about the preservation of the environment.
The best way to get to know this colorful artist is through his own words. “I should perhaps like to be known as the magician of vegetation or something similar. We are in need of magic. I fill a picture until it is full with magic, as one fills up a glass with water. Everything is so infinitely simple, so infinitely beautiful.” Friedensreich Hundertwasser
