Well some people try to pick up girls
And get called assholes
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare and
So Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole

no Van Gogh? That must be the basic bitch choice, which I won't deny when it comes to painting, but I've been to the museum in Arles and it was some of my favourite work I'd ever seen.

the best art museum I've ever been to was the MMK Frankfurt just to throw that out there too. That took modern art form zero to hero for me, couldn't recommend it more highly if anyone gets the opportunity to go there someday.

Van Gogh I learned about at a young age in school when I was in year 3, I remember I liked that teacher, had a crush on her, she taught year 3.
She got me into Van Gogh fore showed his works to the class and asked us to reproduce with pastilles; I chose Van Gogh's A Starry Night and ever since then, when I've ever recreated a Van Gogh, has always been A Starry Night. I came back from America first time I went in 2001 and bought a framed print of Van Gogh's A Starry Night, and I've hung it on my wall wherever I've lived.

- I found out Van Gogh moved to Brixton in South London a happy man and it was here (like the the town over from me, can get a bus to Brixton from my bus stop).. and left Brixton in South London the tortured soul we all know; he went to Bricky Baby! (Welcome to the Ghetto parody of Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N' Roses I wrote reference). So much so, Brixton put him on their money (Brixton started printing their own money for Brixton in South London) and they put Van Gogh on the first B£20 note. - I never got my hands on one of those, but if I did, probably, when I was ever in Amsterdam, HAD I HAVE GONE TO THE VAN GOGH MUSEUM (I didn't get to go), I would have probably made time to check it out and donate the B£20 note to them and tell them with his face on it, just for kicks.

Ain't that the truth. I can watch a whole marathon of his shows and be all relaxed throughout. Crazy to think he was a drill sergeant, or well that's what I've heard.

Military career

Ross enlisted in the United States Air Force at 18 years old and served as a medical records technician.[5]:15 He eventually rose to the rank of master sergeant and served as the first sergeant of the U.S. Air Force Clinic at Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska,[7][8] where he first saw the snow and mountains that later became recurring themes in his artwork. He developed his quick-painting technique to create art for sale during brief daily work breaks.[8] Having held military positions that required him to be, in his own words, "tough" and "mean", "the guy who makes you scrub the latrine, the guy who makes you make your bed, the guy who screams at you for being late to work", Ross decided that if he ever left the military, he would never scream again.[8]

Can't pick a favourite painter (or a favourite style even), as I've seen so much that blew me away.

Just to single someone out, I as blown away by Aelbert Cuyp's work when I visited the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam last December.
He's known for his landscapes, and the way he uses light is just phenomenal.

Yeah, Schiele's when I really "got" how perspective warps reality. He even helped me with body image issues if you can believe it.

Around the time I discovered his work I was also discovering Virginia Woolf's writing, which is a double whammy to a teenager in terms of figuring out more about humans and how it is we express things.

My photography tutor described Schiele as the painter with "the perfect line".

idk what you can do with that info but I more or less agree.
they're coming to take me away
