Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

I'm not all that familiar with artists of the past, but whenever I get bored I browse Deviantart for things of interest. I'm fascinated with the creations of ordinary people and I've met a few lovely laymen that ended up being wonderful, passionate artists. Anyway, here are some of my current favorites found through Deviantart.

Torvenius:



Alexander Jansson:





Leslie Oldaker:
I love the way she views crowds, and people in general.



Eduardo Rodriguez Calzado:





Leszek Andrzej Kostuj: Probably my favorite current artist. I LOVE his imagination and the thick, milky flow of his elegant yet cartoony designs. The almost look as if they have been carved from wood.

Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

I don't know why but I immensely like some Pre-Raphaelite paintings, in theory they should not be particularly interesting to me, but somehow they are, every now-and-then I end up buying some book about them or even Pre-Raphaelite poetry...

Also, I like everything about expressionism in every type of art ( definitely not abstract ), especially artist from Germany and Austria. Otto Dix, Egon Schiele, Goya, Francis Bacon, Munch and Caspar would probably be in my top 10 or whatever.

Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

There are loads and the list has been expanding because there is like an avalanche of amazing artists today. Andrzej Masianis, Ernst Fuchs, Nicholas Kalmakoff, Alison Schulnik, Steve Ditko, Graham Ingels, Robert Venosa, John Martin, Henry Fuseli, William Blake, El Greco, Lee Brown Coye, Goya, Remedios Varo and so many others.
But Albin Brunovsky has more staying power for me than anyone else. I discovered him on Aeron Alfrey's Monster Brains and I bought a large book devoted to his etchings that I still haven't finished looking through. I scanned several images onto a blog when less of his art was around the internet and I'd like to think that people have been spreading my scans because his art has been circulated considerably since then but he still should be more famous.
Unfortunately and bafflingly, there is next to none of his paintings online and I want to buy the big painting book someday.

I'm pleased to see he has his own thread here..

Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

I am very fond of this painting, The Spell, by William Fettes Douglas, who seems to have been an individual interested in the magic arts. The painting is held in my local gallery, so I can visit it whenever I wish. It evokes the true essence of bygone necromancy and sorcery, as though Douglas had indeed seen the wizardry-haunted past.


Let us admit...the hallucinatory nature of the world. Let us...seek unrealities which confirm that nature.
-- Jorge Luis Borges
