Art classes at the studio: Learning from the masters, Friedensreich Hundertwasser

Friedensreich  Hundertwasser (1928 – 2000) was an Austrian architect, painter, ecologist and visionary.  The first time I came across his artwork is when I saw a book about him by Harry Rand (Taschen publisher) at the National Art Gallery in Ottawa this summer. I was attracted by the vibrancy of his colour on the cover.

For this collage, students focused on common themes used in his work such as spiral, "lollipop" trees, drop of water shape.
