    Default Your Favorite Artists & Pieces

    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

    ~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.

    I always liked the work of Gidget Gein, and also find Otto Dix very interesting.

    I love Banksy too! I was too tired to include him in my post- and Helwein, but I knew someone else would mention him. Also I couldn't find a picture of Banksy- obviously, although I've heard one exists now.

    I've always thought Giger's (I think that's his name) work was overrated. Then again, I'm not much of an art buff.
