I used the searchbar, and didnt feel like bumping a 2 year old thread, as peoples tastes change.

Discuss art, art related topics, etc

I myself am a fan of pen and ink drawings, macabre, and surreal art. My favorite artist would have to be Nick Blinko, but my favorite painting would be Picasso's "the old guitarist"

the old guitarist-


Nick Blinko artwork



So, talk about anything art related. Painting, cartooning, whatever

If you have your own art feel free to post

I like Salvador Dali and David Lynch, from this you might have guessed that i like some surreal stuff. Dalis films (although i have only seen un chien andalou) are ok but its a bit too mad for me to make sense of it, the effects were cool for the time though. I really liked Eraserhead, even though it took me a few tries to actually watch it fully, once you finish watching it there is a strange sort of catharsis, its a mixture between a strange optimism and a sense of bewilderment, i don't know if anyone else felt the same, but it was quite cool for me.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

James Gleeson up in this motherfucker.







also Dali, Bosch, El Greco, Van Gogh etc. And that bloke who does the creepy, often beige or yellow-tinted surreal stuff, and gives everything a sort of stringy texture, whose name is so massive that even trying to remember it seems futile.

HR Giger. I'm not sure if 'favourite' is the right word, however.

Really liking Colin McCahon at the moment.



Max Beckmann is also great.



^This work reminds me of John Brack who's also great.

Artists I like...

The Chapman Brothers, Francisco Goya (considering the former kinda a given), STELARC, Giger, Picasso, Andy Goldsworthy (I see someone else has posted his work already). Just some favourites I can name off the top of my head.
I am me. Live with it.
#26
I personally dislike Picasso.

I do like Heironymous Bosch a lot though, such as his most famous painting (big pic)

Edvard Munch


Dali (though he is pretentious):


Escher:


I'll think of others soon.

Holy crap I've seen that before the Bosch piece. I giggled for at least half an art lesson at the guy getting flowers put in his arse.

What about the guy mooning us in the middle of the central frame?

So much to like. Such a great artist. And he managed to get away with it too!

I'm into contemporary stuff.
I like Pieter Parra for instance



just 2 of his works.

his work is very diverse. His typographies are just godly and he really searches the boundaries of what is socially acceptable to portray. Just look up some of his work, you'll like it.
The corners of your mouth feel dry and rather itchy, don't they?

(oh god, I just noticed this one) Your penis is never quite comfortable in its current position.

oh btw:

Ron Meuck does these incredible sculptures.

we should have an art discussion thread, its an interesting area to debate-arts education is a good topic(i suppose music is included too)
are we taught to be good artists or good students?

The problem with debating Art is that you really can't; it's too subjective IMO. I suppose you could say the same thing about music really...

I hate those books. The stories weren't scary at all, but the pictures freaked me the fuck out.

I'm actually very interested in Graffiti.

This is the kind of graffiti we have in Stokes Croft, Bristol. One or two Banksys, but there are loads of other artists too.







Though the last one was commissioned - it's a club btw. There are a few corner houses that have massive artworks on them that were either just done without permission and the house owners liked it, or they might have been asked to do it.
