HUNDERTWASSER.

Having spent a number of years in New Zealand Hundertwasser is an artist I have been interested in for a while. Like Gaudi he was an innovative architect and I  only wish that there were more examples of his architectural work in  New Zealand.
I could not find a single painting that I wanted to interpret so I decided instead to look at his paintings overall ,extracting from them a number of repetitive shapes or symbols and then including them in a piece with buildings . So there were windows and doors , faces and eyes, 'circles', onion rooftops spirals and of course his love of mainly primary ,but always bright ,colours.
Because he had an aversion to straight lines it was liberating to simply innovate as one went along . Having been somewhat at a loss to begin with I ended up enjoying the process.
So here it is .

  2. You have definitely made a great statement of this artis's work using many of his shapes and his style. Your colours too make it zing using his colour palette. Wel done on the onion domes - that was my first shot of my first design which I subsequently discarded as I just couldn't get it "right" and they looked really messy. It is a really fun and colourful interpretation of his work.
