Escher has been a long time favorite..
And once I got into CG art/animation, I discovered Neil Blevins who would also be one of my favorites.

well everyone has a favourite artist, and in my case theyre also my heroes. i look up to them, especially the ones who are probably like the majority of us - struggling to make it big and get into the art industry.

my fave artists include John John Jesse, [google him] he's amazing, his works are based on sex, drugs and rock n' roll. his works are quite graphic, and alot of people dont aprrove, claiming its a bit pornographic, but on a deeper level you can see the satirical message he's making, he's a genius.

how can you not love Ashley Wood, awesome comic work, excellent style

H R Giger, his creations [Aliens the movie] are so fantastic, they go beyond sublime, theyre just so enticing and simply kickass!

Thumbs up Alex Grey for one...

My personal all time favorite artist is Alex Grey. ( )

I absolutely love the extremely vibrant colors that Alex Grey uses in his paintings. I love how he portrays energy throughout the colors in his paintings. Whether it be physical, emotional, mental, spiritual or sexual energy, Alex Grey shows that energy in his painting and I love it.

Other than Alex Grey, I would have to say I also love Dali, of course, HR Giger, and MC Escher.

I've attached a few of my favorites of Alex Grey. Lightweaver, Kissing, and Artist's Hand... Check 'em out!

How about a dose of Abdul Mati Klarwein?

Annunciation - Abdul Mati Klarwein - 1961

Maybe an inspiration to Alex Grey too.

If you hadn't guessed by my earlier posts, J.W.Waterhouse is my favourite, closely followed by Sargent.

I dig the way that Waterhouse has all the technical skills of a classically trained painter but he slaps paint on with a looser, more painterly feel- it's still very much classical representational painting but it's a bit more alive.

Sargent, well he just rocks.

Others I like a lot..

Ed Hopper
The Scottish colourists - Caddell, Ferguson, Peploe, Hunter.
Alma Tadema
Jeremy Lipking
Jack Vettriano
