Hundertwasser's Kunst Haus in Vienna
The museum is filled with his paintings. What's noticeable about Hundertwasser's paintings are the colors (lots of very bright colors) and organic lines. They sort of reminded me of Watt's Tower made by Simon Rodia, which I wrote in my LA blog. Interesting thing is that Hundertwasser's style of painting changed significantly when he was around 20 years old. Till then, his paintings were just so beautiful and very true to life, which reminded me of Picasso's earlier paintings. And all of a sudden it changed, as if something inside of him burst out onto his canvas.
It seems like he spent most of his time travelling. He also spent quite a lot of time in Japan and was once married to a Japanese lady. Although he has been deceased 10 years ago, his arts still exist all over the world including in Japan nad are being appreciated by local people.
