I love just about anything by Picasso in the blue period and cubism movement.

Chuck close is my favorite artist of all time.

- Airbrush

- hand painted

- fingerprints

All of his works are gigantic too. His work changed to that gridded style you see in the second one after he was paralyzed from the neck down. After years of training, he gained the ability to move his left arm. Not the hand, but the arm. So he attached a brush to his arm, and started painting again. And honestly, i like his newer works alot more than the older:


And I am finally seeing that you were the one worth eating.

Talk about Computer Aesthetic. Very interesting. I wonder what's his theoretical background for doing pixel art on canvas.

"alloverness".  Chuck Close should be your favorite artist Helm.   ;D  I think I read somewhere that Close also painted like Maxfield Parrish, in that he would lay down only reds first, then blues, then yellows... to arrive at his colors on the canvas as if he were a printer.  Friggen nuts.

My favourite artist will forever be Max Ernst because he has shown me my dreams. It is on his strength that I deny traditional 'put detail where you want the eye to be drawn' bullshit and it is in pieces like Europe After The Rain II where I realise that every subject is a landscape, and every landscape is a portrait. Intentionality and texture, frottage and blotting. Truly revolutionary, the most important surrealist and an artist every one of you owes it to themselves to look into.

But yes, his Chuck Close dude is very interesting and it's wonderful that I become aware of him at this point in my life. I will investigate.

Yeah, I saw his process somewhere in a book. It's one of the main reasons why i even like him.

I dont really have much painting culture to apport something really meaningful to this topic, I'm more of just blown away by what Helm posted of Max Ernst, but I'll do my best :p

like everyone and their brother I admire Dhali, I completly loathe that melting clocks painting, it's one of his most boring works and because it's been so over-exposed people tend to understimate and sterotype Dalhi.
I like him because of the insane compositions he can do like in "the halucinogenic toreador" http://imagesource.allposters.com/images/pic/PF_NEW%5C09_09_2005_C/PF_1204265~El-torero-alucinogeno-1969-70-Posteres.jpg and the ascension http://www.chubber.net/images/the-ascension-of-christ-1958.jpg also how he messed with pixelart http://www.raymondjames.com/art/images/dali.jpg, but what really really wins me over, is that he did an stereogram where two diferent images superimpose to create an image that is two at the same time http://www.thedumbestgrunges666.blogger.com.br/Salvador%20Dali%20-%20Metamorphosis%20of%20Narcissus.jpg that just killed my artist pride right there. http://www.museoreinasofia.es/coleccion/img_obras_grande/Autoretrato52e7dd0724ca539fd4a52976609805d8.jpg look! ha, the bastard even went cubist XD.

 I also really enjoy MetalGear's Yoji Shinkawa, because of how his imaginary sketches have almost real-life deep facial expressions.
