Who are your favorite visual artists? I'm discovering that I really like Monet:

Image

I chose to analyze this one for an art survey class I'm taking. It's in a museum downtown here. Someone here once said something about wanting to live in a drawing that someone made. That's how I feel about paintings like this. I feel like I want to be sucked into it and be surrounded by its complexity and colors and ambience. 8O

Image

I've always been a huge fan of Dali and surrealism in general also. I like being pulled out of reality.

This is the cover of a Nurse with Wound album. I also really like his music but I think the Dada he uses on his album covers are at least as interesting, and there's not really any other musician I would say that of, except for maybe Beck, but his music is less interesting.

yay Dali!

I think my favorite artists are Michaelangelo and Delacroix. Da Vinci too, though it's so cliche...large format oil is definately my favoite style. I mostly like paintings that depict a story...so anything up through Romanticism, mostly.

and Dali^.^

I like Escher, though it is more graphic design than art, also surrealism.

I like lots, here are a few I can remember now:
1. Escher
2. Kandinsky
3. Antony Gormley
4. Picasso
5. Andy Goldsworthy
6. Rodin
7. Jackson Pollock
8. Bridget Riley

I'm not so keen on Dali because his pictures really confuse me. Nearly all of the artists I wrote about I have seen exhibitions of (except 1 and 5).

i love dali, i think hes my absolute favorate, and i think "metamorphosis of Narcissus" is the best picture in the world. i saw it in london tate and is a lot smaller than expected but just gorgeous. i hope im not the only one who is fascinated with picture frames, especially those that contain images from the pre - raphealite era - theyr so gold and shiny :oops: with the little floral motifs theyr so cute!!

also aurbrey beardsley and mucha - art nouveau is still highly indevidual and succedded in its attempt to appear as if it hasnt stemmed from another art movement. (though i reckon is slightly came from the arts and crafts movement that came before it. i particulary like muchas a ttemt of using mathematics and linear graphs so create the swirly swishy movements of the subjects hair

anyway im rambling now id better stop

I was just watching a Jean Luc Godard film, Les Carabieners, the other day. Didn't he also do Alphaville?
