The style of the Austrian artist and architect Hundertwasser was characterized by a unique combination of colorfulness, organic forms, and philosophical approaches that make his works unmistakable to this day. His art was characterized by his rejection of traditional rules and standards and his preference for irregularity and unpredictability. A defining feature of Hundertwasser's painting is, above all, the vibrant, strong color palette, often in shades of blue, red, green, and yellow, which he arranged in spiral or wave-like structures. These convey a certain movement and dynamism. The painter also integrated organic forms into his artworks and editions. He used curved lines, irregular patterns, and asymmetrical compositions to create an organic, lively aesthetic. These forms reflected his belief that nature was the best model for harmonious design.

Hundertwasser was also famous for incorporating symbols and metaphysical elements into his works, including spirals, onion domes, eyes, and trees, which often hinted at spiritual ideas and universal harmony. In architecture, Hundertwasser pursued similar principles, rejecting standardization and instead incorporating organic forms, unusual color combinations, and the integration of natural elements such as plants and green spaces into his buildings. His best-known architectural works include the Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna, the parish church of St. Barbara in Bärnbach, Austria, and the Grüne Zitadelle in Magdeburg, Germany.
