My favourit artist is Faust De Martini. He has a very cool style and is a great inspiration for me, because he achieved he's goal by being hired of blizzard, and that is where i would like to end up some day

Cannot choose a favourite artist. But this is the work that changed the way I looked at paintings:

'The Kitchen Maid' by Vermeer. http://www.rijksmuseum.nl/index.jsp?lang=en

I absolutely love Vermeer, the way he handles light is amazing.

Quoted for agreement.

Last year I went to the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague and have begun to understand the genious of Mondriaan.

My two absolute favorites are van Gogh and Michael Whelan. Van Gogh's textures and colors always just make me feel spiffy inside. It's really hard to describe.

And Whelan is just fantastic with colors, and capturing a character, and his horrow works border in to disturbing. What I wouldn't give to be half as good as him.

I'm very low-brow. I like Coop, Ivan Albright, and Edward Paschke

Another vote for Vermeer. I guess I'm in good company here. Although many of whom I admire are painters/sculptors from the Renaissance period, most of my favorite painters happen to be Dutch. I wonder if it was the Dutch water.

Johannes Vermeer
Rembrandt
Hieronymus Bosch
Pieter Brueghel the Elder (Flemish actually)
Vincent van Gogh

Everybody knows it is the wooden shoes, once people get them on, they get very creative in finding ways to get them off.

I thought of a few interesting Dutch architects as well:

Gerrit Rietveld
Piet Blom (can't find a decent link, built houses in Rotterdam that had the shape of a cube.......... Standing on one point)
Dudok

I like Luis Royo's style (www.luisroyo.com/). I actually own most of his books.

I like Ver Meer and Dali too. A long time my favorite artist was H. R. Giger. I like his dark visions.

I'm with MadCat on this one.. Luis Royo rocks hard! His style is distinct. I really like his post apocalyptical settings as well as his Beauty and the Beast themes.. (not the Disney version either.. we are talking beautiful vixens and barbaric creatures)

Cheers,

NRG
