Friedensreich Hundertwasser architectural masterpieces. Rarely occur so much vitality, so much joy as they are concentrated in the architectural masterpieces of the Austrian Friedrich Stowasser. “The artist fairy tale world” was called by his numerous admirers from around the world. Today, 12 years after his death, we remember Austrian artist Friedrich Stowasser born in Vienna, he became one of the best-known contemporary Austrian artists, although controversial, by the end of the 20th century. In the Mouldiness Manifesto he first claimed the “Window Right”: “A person in a rented apartment must be able to lean out of his window and scrape off the masonry within arm’s reach. And he must be allowed to take a long brush and paint everything outside within arm’s reach. So that it will be visible from afar to everyone in the street that someone lives there who is different from the imprisoned, enslaved, standardized man who lives next door.”

When he was 20 years old, during a trip to Italy, he changed his name to more harmonious, from his point of view – Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Hundertwasser studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, where he was influenced by artists-expressionists Kampmann and Egon Schiele, traveled a lot, and one day he studied in the School of Fine Arts in Paris. Later he founded a universal academy of all creative fields called “Pintorarium”.
