Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser (December 15, 1928 – February 19, 2000) is one of my all time creative heros. Painter, Architect and Designer, he tried his hand at everything; from stamp and flag design, to environmental activism and artistic theory. He was fascinated by the Spiral, and hated straight lines and believed that every building should have a ‘tree tenant’ growing out the window. His work and beliefs are so broad and diverse I find it hard to write about, but he is well worth a look.

I was excited recently to find a set of 40 Hundertwasser cards on ebay. The prints are amazing, such bold colours and awesome foil aswell.
Here’s a more detailed look at 2 of them – ‘A rainy day on the Regentag’ above and ‘Colombus rainy day in India’ below.
