I like really dark stuff, and mixtures of digital and traditional art.

Arthur Rackham is my favourite artist.

I'm guessing by 'art' you mean drawing, painting, etc. Because, the obvious answer would be music

I mean, I can appreciate a good painting every now and then... but museums are not how I'd like to spend my day.

HOLY ****

Pop art is retarded. Sure, it was good when it was breakthrough and new, but if you look up popart on DA, all you'll get is dickheads using the 'colorize' button on photoshop.

i love pop art,
but when its actually got talent involved,
andy warhol used silk screening,
which is much more involved than anything on the computer these days..

Conceptual art, one of the coolest ones I've heard of was when John Lennon was visiting one of Yoko Ono's art exhibits. There was a big stepladder that led to a magnifying glass hanging from the ceiling, and when you held it up you saw the word "Yes" painted on the ceiling. I also like alot of MC Escher's art

I only really like realism. William Adolphe Bouguereau is my favourite, except I can't spell his name.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

I've never seen the attraction to paintings and stuff.
Like the Mona Lisa. Its a portrait of a woman.
Great.

High-fives and stuff.


But yeah, my favorite form of art is music, but there isn't much art I'm not into.

Warhol is kool for kats. I really like "modern art" in general, actually.

I make some of my own. I don't have the painting/drawing ability to do more detailed types anyway.

I like equal mixture of imagination and classical skill. I'd say I like surreal art, but a lot of it is bollocks. I like cubism quite a bit though, hmm.

My favourite artist is Stanley Donwood.

Stanley Donwood is a ****ing genius. Have you got Dead Children playing?

I also like a lot of Damien Hirst's work especially The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living.



EDIT: And The Designers Republic do some amazing album art.

I'm not so sure of Damien Hurst now, he could shit in a box and sell it for millions these days. Did he not sell a bathroom cabinet for $6Million or something?

Some **** like that, I like a lot of his work but some of it is just ridiculous. He does push the boundaries a bit which I admire but I think sometimes he's just taking advantage of the art scene.

True, it's original in the fact that his stuff is so ridiculous that no-one else would try it, e.g the diamond skull thing he's making.

Were those statues out in the middle of the sea his work? Because I rather like those.

I don't think he did those, no. I'm not 100% though.

EDIT: I quite like them also. If anyone would be so kind as to tell me the name of the artist that would be great, thanks.

Not all pop art sucks. Some of Warhol's stuff is pretty great


#37
Generally, surrealism.

Anyone know of artists that use mostly geometric shapes in their work?
#38
I'm sick of people thinking they're artsy because they know who Andy Warhol is

That's not directed at you TS, I mean the girls who will put an Andy Warhol silkscreen on their myspace and tell all the world how different and indie they are because of it.
