Come and discuss your favourite artists - whether they are the classic painters, new photoshopers or manga artists and why they have inspired you!

If you can provide a link to pictures/credits etc. (cause i'm an art idiot and love to learn more)

I have two favorite artists, and they are:

Vincent Van Gogh. We all know who this is.

Jacques-Louis David. This guy was big during the French Revolution! Razz

I just like these paintings...I dunno. They interest me. Especially The Death of Marat by David. That would be the first one of David's. The one with the dead guy in the tub. It's weird and morbid and I think it's a very interesting commentary on Marat himself. See, I just love David because he was almost like a political cartoonist. Almost all of his paintings made some sort of political commentary.
Van Gogh I love because he was just so...off. And his paintings just rock. I like how you can see the brush strokes in the paintings. Smile

Emily, was one of those pictures you posted the cover?

It's funny, Novel because in my art class we do an art history note thing everyday, and one of the ones we did once was the Jacques-Louis David of The Death of Marat. My teacher was telling us how the man in the tub had some skin disease, which I can't remember what it was, so he would sit in a bath of warm water and write because the water helped his skin or something. Next year I am taking an Art History AP class, and I am so excited! I think I like learning about art and artists better than drawing myself.

One of my favorite drawings is called Hand with Reflecting Sphere by M. C. Escher. Amazing. It actually looks reflective, and it's pencil!

Another peice of art that I really like is this painting by Chao Shan Ang:

I don't know why I love it so much, if it's the colors or the fact that a flower and bird can look so emotional.
