The artists who have been the most influential on my work are probably Shepard Fairey and Banksy; I believe that the most relevant art right now is coming from the streets. The artist I most admire, though, is Francis Bacon. I really aspire to creating paintings that provocative someday. His work has influenced the composition of a lot of my paintings, but as of yet not the theme or focal point; I don't want to be too derivative, and I have not had an idea profound enough.
I admire artists who create very "strong" work technically and with content. I do not refer here to "subject", that is "what" is interpreted in the medium, but rather the interpretation and its context in the medium as well as its space and reference. The content in a painting for instance is the paint, the scale, the subject or subjects, the tones and hues and drawing of the piece.
These artists keep me striving to create powerful imagery that poses multiple layers of meaning and questioning.
For her technique and narrative style, I love Remedios Varo. I also like the work of Paula Rego, one of the bravest artists I know.
it is not what you say but who you are that defines you, art is a way of life and can't be separated from how you live, your work is a mirror reflection of your soul...in this context...it is not easy,
I admire an artist that starts from nothing, economically and socially speaking, becomes rich from his/her art that touched humanity, did not have to live from sharity or prostitute him/her self or ideals, remained true to self in love and family life, did not abandom relatives as in children or aging parents for professional reasons, did not hurt others with his/her vanity or pride, loved and surrounded by friends lived happy ever after in good health and grew old working and laughing. do you know any such artist ? then that is who i admire and aspire to be,...no hurry i have all the time in world...unless the sky falls on me tomorrow of course,...
Van gogh, Amrita shergill, Manjit Bawa
These painters inspire me coz I see soul in their works
Antoni Tapies, he influenced my style, in a later stage Broto
Picasso and Hokusai, they lived such long time because of they had energy to live so same energy they put into their art, I would like to express my energy, and energy from nature which same thing to me. Human is one of nature so if I have such a energy, i can transfer to canvas, that will be great!
koudelka and ansel adams
Edward Seago; loose style with meaning
Picasso; process and study of the masters and developing your own style but not forgetting the process
Van gogh; Feelings laid bear
Diego Velazquez is among my favorite artists. His vision conveys a poise and a natural quality that, for me, is nothing short of miraculous. Having said so, I take inspiration from a very wide range of sources. Human creativity has produced such a great range of expression that I may respond to many of them.
Picasso, Hockney, Turner and many others.
Italian boroque painter Caravagio. He always gives the impression there's something going on outside the canvas
chagall, matisse, monet, modigliani, klee, picasso, vangough, bonnard, miro
i think i have learned by studying all of them...
