the Wyeths, Tiffany, the Hudson River school
I don't think I like a particular artist, there is something beautiful in everybody's work.
I think old masters influence some of the darker colors I use.
Mark Rothko has a Big influence in my work, He was the first Artist I saw and said that is amazing. Currently I am surounded by amazing artist at Junctionview Studios Like BJR, Coreroc, Laura Alexander, Leigha Wong, Robert Trautman. Also Marina Goldshteyn Carolyn Slebodnik and Larry Doyle those guys are artist to keep your eye out for.
Too many to name here but I have to say I admire all artist's who make it their life work. We create because we have to.
Wow there are so many artist I'll list a few.
1. Marc Silvestri- i was a fan of his work when i started to read comics. When I first started drawing i tried to emulate his style
2. Georgia O'Keeffe- I love the cattle skull paintings but i love the colors she uses and try to balance some of my coloring the same way.
3. Angel Medina- another comic book artist, who has a very loose style, he gave me a few tips on how to get more fluidity in my drawings.
4. Tim Seeley- Comic artist at Devil'd Due, who taught me a lot of practice techniques while i was an intern at DDP.
5. Tite Kubo- Manga Artist, i love his character designs for Bleach.
I admire and have been influenced by;
Pollock, de Kooning, Franz Kline, Motherwell, Rothko, Rauschenberg, Twombly, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Jack Bush, Ellsworth Kelly, Adolph Gottlieb, Milton Avery, Helen Frankenthaler, Barnnet Newman, Harold Town, Gathie Falk, Gordon Smith, Michael Snow, Marilyn Kirsch, Charles Arnoldi, Brice Marden, Elizabeth Enders, Mary Bogdan, Rebecca Crowell, Joanne Mattera.
One of my favorite things about teaching, and teaching art history particularly, is that I get to explore many artists and art movements along with my students. I teach the same class over and over, but I teach it in a different way each time to keep it fresh and interesting for me. I love exploring other artists work and I find inspiration in many places.
With regard to humor in art, Peter Brugel the elder had some great observations. Then I also found Anne Wilson's work amazing and captivating with her exploration of textile materials and techniques.
John Singer Sargent has the paint and brushwork quality that I love; delicious thick, painterly marks that capture more than realism - the spirit of the individual. David Hockney amazes me still with his Camera Works series of collaged photographs.
Kurt Schwitters is a collage artist from the Dada art period and there is something about his work that always stops me in my tracks.
I greatly admire Jan Vermeer, Whistler, John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, to name just a very few! I love the painterly looks they have attained as well as their draughtsmanship skills, which is a very important part of art for me.
all of them.........the influences is to see areas they have explored that I have not been to yet............
I have many favourite artists, photographers, illustrators, actually I think, mostly I like what fascinate me:)
Here are some:
Caravaggio - with his realistic paintings and beautiful anatomy
Gustav Klimt - "secession" detailed and rich decorations
First of all, I like my husband's photograph. He is one of my favourites, I like to work with this beautiful and artistical photos, to re-use in my works and show them in other point of view.
Pollock,Warhol,Matisse, they influence me in a way i will never know, they are very powerful and very present in our every day lives!
oh too many to mention!
what i specifically admire is those who are consistent in their releases, those who have their own personal style, those who spread a good message and do this for the love.
The people of pop surrealism.
Michelangelo from Ninja Turtles.
I like them, so they influence me. Who really knows how they do it.
Salvador Dali, I love his dream/surrealistic paintings. Piet Mondrian for his simplicity and basic colors and the geomatric shapes.
