Today I saw a Hundertwasser exhibition at Arken together with my family. Especially these two pictures caught my attention.
The title of the first one is ‘Window Right’ (1986/1988) and the title of the second one is ‘Homage to Van Gogh’ (1998).
‘I want to show how basically simple it is to have paradise on earth‘. These are the words of the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000). Seeking to make the world a better place through paintings, manifestos and a more human architecture, Hundertwasser materializes paradise in brightly coloured paintings, fantastical buildingns and a unique brand of eco-activism embracing everything from humus-toilet manifestos and tree-planting actions to plant-based root-zone treatment systems.
