Friedensreich Hundertwasser

Friedensreich Hundertwasser embodies the idea of environmental-artist at a time before the dawn of the modern environmental movement. His manifesto condemns the modernist aesthetics of ultra-refinement as one reason that our cities appear so dull and inhuman; and suggests that every building should have a ‘tree-tenant’ to green up the place. I love his painting and architecture, but it is his manifesto and philosophy that is of most relevance to my work.
