The amazing work of ‘R. Mutt’
R = Richard, French connotations of moneybags
Mutt = cartoon character motivated by greed


Bravo Marcel Duchamp, pioneer of ready-made art

Irinaland over the Balkans

image

Artist: Friedensreich Hundertwasser

Title of Work: Irinaland Over the Balkans

Creation date: 1969

Location: IMA (Indianapolis Museum of Art) or 13 Untere Weissgerberstrasse

Materials: ink enamel on a silkscreen

‘Irinaland over the Balkans’ is one of Friedensreich Hundertwasser’s most famous creations. The painting is created by the using of 31 different colours of ink, used on a silk screen. So many different colours contribute to why this piece is a famous psychedelic work of art. It is a very abstract and quite graphic painting that uses a lot of colour. Irinaland over the Balkans is made up using lots of lines, in different colours, to create patterns and scenery. It is the portrait if a woman, merged into a housing association, whose face is shaped by lots of lines. The spiral at the bottom of the picture, in greens and blues, forms the lines which go onto shape the rest of the picture. The woman’s face in the picture is the Bulgaria actress Irina Maleeva, whom Hudertwasser was close to. He dedicated this painting as a memory. It is a very unusual portrait to represent the actress. Portraits are supposed to represent people in their natural surroundings, but Hundertwasser takes this idea even further by making Irina part of her surroundings.
