Hundertwasser Flowers

Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000) was a lateral thinker- in his art and architecture as well as in his ecological ideas. He was a pioneer who challenged the world around him. He wanted to make people receptive to beauty and aware of their own creative thoughts and actions.

"Our true illiteracy is our inability to act creatively."
-Friedensreich Hundertwasser

Artists in the 1-3 classes created these Hundertwasser style flowers. We painted a vibrantly warm colored sky to contrast the cool color flowers. These paintings were embellished with many details and patterns to mimic the artwork of Hundertwasser.
