Hundertwasser comment about the work:
This was the beginning of a long period of working together with my friend, the "Coordinatore" Alberto Della Vecchia. Up to that time I had resisted doing graphics. What had been done in this line hitherto had come about more or less because I had no choice. Until Alberto brought me a "Hundertwasser graphic" he had done. I immediately felt ill: this was kitsch which aped my style. Nonetheless, it was the decisive impetus to do it better, to do it right. Thus "King Kong" came to be.
