Austrian artist, Friedensrich Hundertwasser (1928-2000) paints eye-catching distortions and patterns in vibrant palettes based on Art Nouveau principles. Having lost 69 Jewish relatives during the Nazi rule, eventually he designed the Peace Flag for the Near East in 1978. Both Vienna and Syria decorated him with their Gold Medals of Honor. Often compared to Klimt and Schiele, the decorative and technical aspects of work flames controversy among critics yet he is exceedingly popular with people.
This reproduction is inverted, like in mirror-writing. This was suggested by Hundertwasser himself in order to create a new dimension and to discover the painting as it were in another light. The print is also embellished with a metallic foil imprint.
