This art print after the Hundertwasser's painting "LOEWENGASSE - THE THIRD SKIN" (oeuvre 839) is a premium 8-colour offset print on 250 g/sqm cast coated, high gloss paper. Glitter blue and silver glossy-foils are embossed in several finishing steps. Four specialized companies in the area around Stuttgart are involved in this complicated manufacturing process.
Hundertwasser comment about the work:
"A Hundertwasser House architecture reverie. The project was in progress. Combining architecture and painting is difficult. I am reproached in architecture circles for just painting houses: it is all a Potemkin façade, i. e., flat, with nothing behind it. And at that I build in tandem with the architect Pelikan extremely varied, complicated houses full of nooks and crannies. It is on the contrary precisely the T-square-straight, soulless architectures which are flat and easy to analyse and construct with a computer. My houses - the computer people have said - often need more data input than medieval cathedrals."
