I thought I'd create a thread where you could share some of your favourite artists.
Feel free to post links and pictures.

Mine would be Marilyn Manson, Salvador Dali, Cindy Sherman, Man Ray, Lori Earley and Peter Booth.

Warhol
http://artisme.files.wordpress.com/2007/09/andy-warhol-photograph-c10036912.jpeg (http://farfromhuman.com/ahis2020/WarholCoke.jpg)
~What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.

Murakami

~Andy Warhol was someone who could not distance himself from reality. He needed to invent media constantly in order to protect himself from that immersion. He created media as "others," which were not related to his own interiority, and he defined his identity through those media.

Rene Magritte...i always thought he did good pieces.

Salvador Dali...his art's quite cool. :)

ugh..i can't think of their name, but whoever did the one painting of the train coming out of a cupboard...i always loved that painting.

Manson...he does very intersting pieces...very unique style as well, which is probably the main reason why i like his paintings.

aw, can't forget DaVinci. he's a very cool artist. starry night was beautiful, and had such a fun feeling to it.

EDIT: now i looked at those pictures of Banksy's work, he seems pretty cool, as well.

I know this is vague, but forgive me. At the 'Phant, on Azazel's thread, someone said that his work was a mix of two artists. Does anyone remember by chance? because I checked their work out and i really liked it. I hope someone knows.

Lord Hypnos
07-26-2009, 01:02 PM
^Yes! Just looked him up and his paintings seem familiar, thanks. There's one more artist who made some weird monster paintings. It seemed real though. I really don't know how to explain it.

Well his work is elatively predictable, but that one repeated motif is fucking amazing.
Yer even if it is always the same style and monochrome colours, everything he does looks amazing and his works are so detailed its insane.

Francisco Goya

Yes, Yes and Yes!
I'm also really fond of the work of the impressionists, like you said, Monet, also Cezanne, Degas, Renoir, Berthe Morisot. There's something about how they recreate moods through light. You can almost feel the light and the colours are so beautiful. I specially like cafe scenes and portraits because, I dunno, the pictures really emote, they draw you in. It's saying dimensions of the images couldn't be determined, so I'm just linking some.

Degas:

Since the other thread wasn't saved before the switch to this layout, we'll have another one. I'm curious about your favorite artists, sometimes they influence my own art :D

My favorite artist is Zdzisław Beksiński, a Polish painter (though it's not limited to just paintings)

Hylas and the Nymphs (1896) by John William Waterhouse

I remember seeing a picture of The Naiad by J.W. Waterhouse in one of my parents art books when I was about 7 or 8 years old and being absolutely spellbound by it, I would literally sit and just look at every little detail of it for around an hour at a time.

A few of my favourites;

- Hans Bellmer
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/the-thing/4dc6fd78.jpg
A photograph from the 'Les Jeux de la poupée' set.

Although these dolls are distorted and mutilated, I love the way he’s managed to give them a sense of vulnerability, beauty and sexuality through their pose and surroundings in which they were photographed in.


- René Magritte
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/the-thing/f99e0a39.jpg
Like a lot of his work, I admire the questionable reality for the way he's painted something unrealistic in a life-like manner.


- Barbara Kruger
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/the-thing/f177f5e1.jpg
An example of the simple, yet effective and often comedic approach she uses to mock society.


- Patricia Piccinini
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/the-thing/4e2db3cc.jpg
From the series Natures Little Helper.

A typical work by Piccinini representing the controversial topic of scientific development as something completely harmless. Although I disagree with her arts intensions, I admire the way she’s managed to successfully portray these grotesque little creatures as something very cute. ^__^


- Francis Bacon
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/the-thing/8938cbc5.jpg
One of my favourite portraits by Francis Bacon. He’s one of the few artists I know that can paint with a dry brush and make it look good.


- Early Renaissance period art
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/the-thing/dd705dba.jpg
Although this period mainly produced artworks which reflected the subjects everyday life, for what appeared to be a busy, chaotic time in history, I’m intrigued by the stillness and lack of depth in these paintings. They used to scare me as I child, and even now… I still find them to be quite eerie. :/


- Man Ray
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/the-thing/fc921784.jpg
I like viewing this artwork in two different ways, by focusing on the photograph for what it is, the exaggerated tilt of a women's neck, as well as appreciating the unique, semi-abstract shapes the neck forms.


- Yayoi Kusama
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/the-thing/30f1aa8f.jpg
I like her work mainly for aesthetic purposes. Lots of her art is based around repetitive patterns, in particularly red and white polka dots which I was unaware of and coincidently wore a dress with this pattern while visiting her exhibition. I blended in with her instillations.. :/


And as previously stated in this thread, I'm also a fan of the works of;


- Gottfried Helnwein
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/the-thing/46ae9047.jpg

- Salvador Dali
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/the-thing/559fce49.jpg

- Andy Warhol
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f184/the-thing/9d4a83f3.jpg

They make these crazy huge installation art pieces of like, regular household objects like clothespins or shuttlecocks. Two of my favourites are:

I was thinking of doing a 'Favourite Photographs' topic, but remembered we have this (criminally under-used) one. I have others, but momentarily wanted to share a picture.


http://providermodule.com/Administrators/S.D./Miscellaneous/WeekiWachee.png




Weeki Wachee Springs, Toni Frissell [1947]
I know that it was used for fashion purposes, but there is something chillingly surreal about this picture, like Ophelia in the lake or something. I think it's really just a very cleverly shot image, but considering when it was taken, and the enduring effect it has, I'd definitely class this as one of my favourite images.

Also, Celiny, have you noticed how much the maid in that Banksy picture looks like Twiggy Ramirez? Aside from that, I fully second the various motions for Man Ray, Francis Bacon, Hans Bellmer Gustav Klimt and Aubrey Beardsley.

Always liked Andres Serrano, well known for his pieces "Blood and Semen" and "Blood and Urine" being used for Metallica's Load and ReLoad covers, but also his notorious "Piss Christ".

Yes, that is a crucifix submerged in a tank of his own urine.

Of course, Marilyn Manson. This has always been one of my favourites.

As Celiny-O already mentioned, Banksy.

and finally, it's not "art" in the same context as social commentary, it's more illustration or, if you will, fantasy art. But I've always been fond of two of the artists that work on the products for the miniatures wargames that I play, John Blanche:

I don't have a favorite piece or artist, but I do have a favorite exhibit that I went to. It was called "Debris" and included work by Portia Munson, Aurora Robson, and Sarah Frost in March, 2010.

Unfortunately, I didn't have a real camera with me at the time that I went, and did a REALLY crappy job capturing the exhibit - which was already one of those awe-inspiring, you-really-have-to-see-it-in-person types to begin with.
But here's what I was able to dig up.
Every work of art was comprised of items pulled out of the trash, so essentially, the art was trash (hence "Debris").


I only took pictures from a few angles of "Pink," unfortunately.

This is going to be a really long post. I am sorry. (I'm not)

Tonight my friends invited me to a rooftop concert, which turned out to be more of a small gathering around a local punk band we know.
But the building it was on was THE COOLEST fucking building ever.

It's called C-Squat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C-Squat) because it's on Avenue C in Manhattan, and has historically been inhabited by squatters.
In the '70s when NYC started to go downhill, a lot of landlords abandoned their properties in the East Village, and that area started to really deteriorate into the '80s (that's where/when "RENT" is set), and the East Village residents, mainly comprised of drug addicts, musicians, "punks," artists, etc. started moving into all the abandoned buildings.

10-15 years ago this became a big problem because the city owned all these buildings, and they were completely occupied by people who didn't pay rent or keep the buildings up to code. Mayor Giuliani tried to evict all of the squatters and succeeded in a LOT of cases, but very recently the city ended up selling C-Squat TO THE PEOPLE LIVING THERE FOR ONE DOLLAR under the condition that they properly maintain the building. I don't remember all the details they were telling me tonight, but basically the people had lived there for enough years to qualify as the property owners.

And since I have a huge thing for urban art/graffiti/etc I was completely enthralled with this place. The pictures are relatively shitty because I was drunk, it was dark, and I only had my camera phone, but I did my best to try and capture some of the more interesting elements.
Sigh.
I miss old New York City.
I seriously wish all apartments looked like this.

Besides the surreal and impressionistic favorites I have, there are many multi-artists who are amazing with grandiose installations. Pure amazing art, both in painting and in shape. A favorite that I once discussed with Gein is a Swedish artist named Ulf Rollof http://www.rollof.com/



http://www.expressen.se/ImageHandler.axd?imageFormat=secondColumn&guid=72f5f811-212b-4184-743e-e2190569d8b9

A review of Ulf: One of my favorite contemporary artists exhibiting at Carl Millesgården with some new items that symbolize the pain and fragility of the human body. Well not that we get us a bio-medical outsourcing directly, but more of a symbolic nature. The reason is that Ulf Rollof underwent serious surgery for chronic back pain that he wanted to cure. Thanks so was this exhibition. He makes some objects that look like some kind of skeleton. Preferably the spine can be envisaged. But while seeing the bones appear to be prehistoric parts of a larger object. The funny thing is that the parts are clearly made of some material resembling egg cartons. There are fun ideas that are tangible, considering his own human body pain. The part of the exhibition, I immediately understand and associate with no problems. But it is difficult to understand the object that looks like an octopus with long arms, plus the drawings with a supposed woman who has an octopus clustered around the body. I do not symbolism or what the squid is related to Ulf Rollof. I can imagine that water could be meant life, such symbolism is usually almost be too explicit.

Gregor Schneider "BASEMENT KELLER Haus u r"

I experienced this installation yesterday at the Art Gallery of NSW and absolutely loved it. The installation is composed of dirty dark rooms and maze like paths that lead to dead ends. The first time I went through I rushed; I found it very claustrophobic and I just wanted to get out to the familiar and bright gallery space. The second time I went in was a completely different experience, I was still anxious but I was also excited, I knew the way out and took my time looking and feeling around the space.
I really like art that triggers a strong emotive response and this work did just that. I hope that one day I can go to "Haus u r" in Mönchengladbach-Rheydt, that would be awesome.

Here is a video from the AGNSW with Schneider discussing the work.
