Hundert Wasser

We saw this exhibition of the work of Hundert Wasser in the Art Museum in Budapest. He was interested in the relationship of the built environment to nature. For example he didn’t agree with the repainting of walls because he felt that patches of dirt created organic patterns that lent a unique design to exteriors. He lived from 1928 to 2000 and was influenced by Klimt. His works use basic colours and designs in squares and circles. He used a variety of media including silk screen printing, tapestry, wood blocks and graphics.
