The Hundertwasser Museum is home to a collection of works by the Viennese artist Freidrich Hundertwasser, who designed the iconic Hundertwasserhaus. It's located in a building with equally unique architecture, the museum houses exhibits showcasing the artist's curious paintings, as well as a number of his graphic and architectural designs.
Friedensreich Hundertwasser, born in Vienna in 1928, stood out in the world of painting, sculpture and architecture for his original vision: he was an opponent of "straight lines", and his work is characterised by its colours, curved lines and organic forms.
Hundertwasser's early life was not easy, being Jewish during the reign of Adolf Hitler, but despite everything, his work soon became accepted and respected throughout Austria.
His strange personality - favouring odd socks, for example - can be seen reflected in the bold colours and asymmetry of his works and creations.
