Have you ever heard of Friedensreich Hundertwasser?
Hundertwasser is German for for "hundred waters" and is a pseudonym; he was born Friedrich Stowasser.
He was a really cool artist from Austria who travelled all around the globe making amazing art!
He was well known for using a lot of spirals, lines, complimentary colours & giant circular trees in his paintings! He made impressive and very colourful paintings. His style was unique and is very fun to try to recreate with a variety of mediums!

On top of being a really cool and innovative artist, Friedensreich was also an architect! His creations were all very unique, and sometimes blended with their surroundings because they were covered with grass and plants, or were really sticking out because they were so different looking!
