About the artist:

Hundertwasser was an Austrian-based New Zealand artist renowned for his work ''Hundertwasserhaus'' in Vienna, Austria, which has become a notable place of interest in the Austrian capital, characterized by imaginative vitality and uniqueness.

In the early 1950s, he entered the field of architecture. Hundertwasser also worked in the field of applied art, creating flags, stamps, coins, and posters.

Hundertwasser mobilized the power of his art in order to spread his message for a life in harmony with nature and individual creativity. He was a symbolic figure for a non-conformist way of life, a forerunner of environmental protection and drew a lot of inspiration from Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, and even Antoni Gaudi's work.

A few comments by Hundertwasser on this particular poster: ''A religious picture with transformed religious associations or a kind of pantheistic symbolism? I would have trouble saying which religion I like best. There are also so many beautiful women: all of them have something wonderfully divine about them. I am convinced that painting is a religious activity and that through true creativity we come closer to Creation, whose manifestation we have around us in every leaf and every beetle.''
