Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

Art is my favorite thing, it overshadows my passion for even literature and music. So I have quite a few favorites. Here's some off the top of my head...

Old Masters:
Sandro Botticelli, Andrea Mantegna, Hieronymous Bosch, Albrecht Dürer, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, etc.

Romantics:
William Blake, Caspar David Friedrich, Gustave Doré, Carl Gustav Carus, Anne-Louis Girodet, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Alexander Cabanel, Albiert Bierstadt, Thomas Cole, John Martin, the Nazarenes, etc

Pre-Raphaelites:
William Holman Hunt, Edward Burne-Jones, Evelyn de Morgan, John Duncan, Ford Madox Brown, John William Waterhouse, Byam Shaw, etc (in truth I love most of the artists associated with the Pre-Raphs)

Symbolists:
Jean Delville, Gustave Moreau, Léon Frédéric, Arnold Bocklin, Franz von Stuck, Max Klinger, Sascha Schneider, Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach
Fernand Khnopff, Amos Nattini, Alphonse Mucha

Post 1900:
Ernst Fuchs, Zdzisław Beksiński, Salvador Dali, Robert Venosa, Victor Safonkin, Albin Brunovsky, Oleg Korolev, Agostino Arrivabene, Santiago Caruso, Denis Forkas, etc.

And many, many more. There are plenty I've forgotten I'm sure.

Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

I'd already posted many of my favorites when I was more active on here. Multiple times now I've tried to post pics by Suguru Tanaka because his work strikes me as incredibly similar, albeit in a strictly visual sense, to that of Ligotti, Kafka, and Burroughs. Sigh, I'll just have to show the tumblr instead, my Mac doesn't interact well with this site.

Seriously, scroll through those for a bit, tell me they don't send some weird juices flowing.

Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

I must gush on this group for just a moment if I may. Whether on this post or similar ones where the discussion turns to literature, music, film, etc., I am constantly being introduced to new artists that I may have never heard of were it not for this forum's members. I sincerely cherish all the minds Here as they have enriched my horizons greatly. My humblest thanks to you all.

Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

At this point, my favourite artists are those i can talk to.
The artists i share a studio building with at locatieZ are incredibly smart interlocutors that teach me a lot about making art, even though i may or may not personally like their work (which in itself is something i learned). The artists whose work i have been incredibly lucky to encounter in the 11 years of running Baracca : BARACCA. The gents and ladies over at the EATEN BY DUCKS & les cadavres exquises

Live ones. Breathing specimens. Citizens. Humans.
Many of the other, more distant 'favourite' artists, i have internalized to such an extent that i really wouldn't be able to say if William Blake is my favourite artist or if my interpretation of him is my favourite artist, for example.

Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

I'm not knowledgeable about art, but I really like Peter Booth's paintings. They're incredibly, perversely beautiful.
