~Friedensreich Hundertwasser~

And I love this artist ever since seeing an exhibition of his in MONTREAL in Canada (where I lived at the time) in the 1970's.

~Friedensreich Hundertwasser~

Transautomatism is a modern style of painting, founded by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. It is a kind of surrealism, which also point of the viewer's fantasy. Different people see different things in the same picture. It is less what the artist wants us to see, more about how we interpret it. The transautomatism is based on the different styles which Hundertwasser developed, e.g. the spirals and drops.
Transautomatism is about Hundertwasser's theory that straight lines are 'godless and immoral'. That as humans we have lost out connection to the organic geometry of nature by forcing ourselves to exist in boxes as homes. He believed in the fluidity of line and shape hence his architectural and painting style. Being educated in a Montessori school his self directed learning came from nature and therefore his drive to return to colour and organic states.
