|Which artists do you admire and how do they influence your work?
robert piesen .the silent sign in his work makes me feel real.i love his technology.
Joe Madureira I've mentioned before. He took comic art to a whole new level. Banksy for being so outgoing and creative. Richard Kern for his photography of the female form. More than any though would be friends from my past. Especially my friends Sketch from North Carolina and Mel from Chicago. Those kids were unbelievable.
Zdzislaw Beksinski, Gustave Dore, Brian Froud.
Maxfield Parrish, Mucha, Beaugureau, Leonardo Davinci, Botticelli Dali... So many more.
The Pre-Raphaelites were exquisite painters. The Art Nouveau period is so graceful and poetic in its graphic nature. The lighting in Leonardo and Maxfield Parrish's work is so dramatic. All are romantic and spiritual.
I aspire to all of them.
There are to many to mention. If I was just taking from one or two, I'd just have art that looked like someone else. I'm influence by new things every day.
The Heidelberg School of artist such as Tom Roberts, Fredrick McCubbin, and Arthur Streeton for their Ausntralian Landscapes in capturing the essence and the love of the land. This school was the first real art movement in Australia.
Very great admiration for Ellis Rowan's paintings 1848- 1922. This wonderful lady achived what "ladies" in her time was not meant to do and this was frowned on. Well into her sixities this lady thought of nothing of crocodile waters and crawling down cliffs in whalebone corsets to capture her subjects on canvas. She was Australian and Internationally respected. She was chosen over all of the above artists to win the Gold medal at the newly formed Artist's society of Victoria. How could she........a women. This woman had travelled in New Zealand on horse back and to far countries of India, Russia, and South east Asia. If there is any artist I take my hat off to and admire so much it is Ellis Rowan.
Anonymous Graffiti Artists. My work is heavily influenced because I watch the mundane and ordinary. Thus, the parallel is the trash i.e., what people wish to casually disregard, forget or ignore.
I admire many artists, and I wish to allocate Marc Chagall... I like to fly...:)
There are many artists in the comic and pop art communities. I do love the obvious Da Vinci, Angelo, Dali, and Van Gogh.
Well, i was made by El Anatsui. He instilled in me the creative confidence which has helped me to face the shifting paradigm of contemporary art and practices. I like the works of Ichi Ikeda, and the writings of Emoto
Classical artists. Modern... Salvador Dali, Michelangelo, Vermeer, Andy Warhol... it is inpossible to put them in one category. I love their ideas, emotions built into their work.
I admire all good artists and they have influenced me in more ways than I could know.
There are many, too many. From the Impressionists to the cartoonists Robert Crumb and Gary Panter, they are all there. If I have to single out one group it has to be the old ladies of Szechuan province in China, who after a lifetime of hard work retire and start paper cutting incredible stories, patterns and shapes full of meaning and symbolism.
I admire a lot of artists, many of them are friends of mine. I can't say they influence my work that much, but yes there is a bit of inspiration to be gained from looking at their pieces.
And a lot of others, for stepping outside of the box
