I was trying to paint a picture today, but seems the color i was using was just a pigment of my imagination...


And it is all about structure. A fluid mathematical organism with gold drops in their intestines and echoes of colorful lines vibrating through them.



You cant sell news stories that have data and cautious predictions. Where is the panic? Where is the impending doom? C'mon people , give me something to work with here…

Friedensreich Hundertwasser - Multigolden Magic

Hundertwasser is the biologist to Miro's creatures. It is the life that is inside us, the cells of our soul, the membranes of mind.

If you look long enough at a Hundertwasser colorful Petri dish of structural symbolism, you can't help but to wait for it to start moving, start pulsating, breathing, dividing…creating new life, evolving. As an ex-multimedia expert I once thought of doing a 3d project about animating, really animating one of his works. But you know what? I decided against it as part of the charm is this tension. This 'about to' feeling. Anticipation.

And it is all about structure. A fluid mathematical organism with gold drops in their intestines and echoes of colorful lines vibrating through them.

he doesn’t paint a circle. It is not even a ripple in a pond. It is the evolution of a circle, it is the quantum multi existence in different stages and positions. It IS math. But a very flexible one…
And living cells become building windows; colorful membranes are now lines of a strange amorphic house. Plasmic colors painted apartments.
When we dream alone it is only a dream, but when many dream together it is the beginning of a new reality. "
Gaudi built snowflakes. perfect in every form from every direction.
Hundertwasser gave birth to living city blocks.
If you look at nature you will find that every time you find a perfect straight line, it is a direct result of pressure. a spider hanging on a thread from his web creates a perfect straight line thanks to gravity. Pressure. A snowflake growing symmetric and evenly spaced does so because of the distance and tension of his equal parts working on each other. Pressure.

Hundertwasser just took the pressure off buildings. Opened the top trousers button after a good meal and relaxed. That is why they are so wonderful. I have seen a lot of organic type architecture but it always looks contrived and forced. In his case it is the opposite. It looks …comfortable. Right.

Just carrying a ruler with you in your pocket should be forbidden, at least on a moral basis. The ruler is the symbol of the new illiteracy. The ruler is the symptom of the new disease, disintegration of our civilisation. "

I haven’t managed to find  any published research about the effect living in a Hundertwasser house has on the human psyche, but I am sure there is , and not a minute one at that. I know that what I am going to say now will sound so naïve and ridiculous, but  I can find it very hard to believe that a person who lives in a Hundertwasser house for, let's say five years, returning to it from work, leaving it in the morning, will be a racist. Or a banker. And although it is obvious that people who choose to live there are a certain kind of people and come with an open minded artistic disposition to begin with, but I am sure there is an accumulated effect too. There must be.

I just look at the photos and already feel something inside me growing… He is one of those artists who are not only creative but true creators, living in his own visual world of delightful distortion and vibrating circles of confusion.

When I go through his work I really wouldn’t mind spending a couple of hours inside this mind, like a Beatles yellow submarine colorful cartoon, but with an added value of the biological knowledge of the visual soul of the universe.
