Friedensreich Hundertwasser // Scratchboard Landscapes
Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928 – 2000) was an Austrian-born artist and architect who worked also in the field of environmental protection. Although Hundertwasser first achieved notoriety for his boldly-colored paintings, he is more widely known for his individual architectural designs. These designs use irregular forms, and incorporate natural features of the landscape and are known for imaginative vitality and uniqueness. After an overview of landscape techniques, students will use a scratchboard to create an imaginative landscape in the style of Hundertwasser.
