    I'm interested in seeing who your favorite artists are. I know this is in the wrong forum and there is most likely another thread, so I'll probably be banned.

    My Favorite Artist of the last 14 days is Damien Hirst. I know, you think he sucks and isn't really an artist.

    Here is a sample of his work:


    Things I like:
    The fact that he's a nut-job.
    Social commentary and quasi-profound yet oh so catchy titles.
    Installations using living (and dead) animals.
    Fascination with medical equipment.
    Parking a car on the steps to a London gallery.

    Things I don't like:
    The dots, enough with that shit already.
    The fact that he has other people make spin paintings and then sells them as his own.
    The fact that prints are extremely expensive.
    (And I hear he doesn't care about black people...)

    What percentage is you?

    That shit is gangsta ferreal.

    Also, as an aside. I went to this house party at some rich kids house and I swear I saw an early Rothko. What do those things run for? Can anyone point me to one that would be black background using reds, greys, and muted yellows before he went into the "painting boxes" phase?

    The amount of Jackson Pollock biting that goes on among aspiring pseudo-artists is unbelievable. He's still the man. His wannabe look-alikes, on the other hand, are not.

    The 1958 Rothko oil painting, titled No. 15, sold for $8.96m in May of 2004.


    The 1953 painting, "Homage to Matisse," sold for $22.5 million dollars.


    I dig Rothko...a lot. Biting happens all the time in the art world...they just call them influences and its all good.

    Pollock was cool because he was a fucking bully. Dude forced what he wanted to do down people's throats until they had no choice but to acknowledge, accept and appreciate. If that isn't an 'artist,' I don't know what the fuck is.

    Are there other angry Pollock-types (in apporach, not technique) out there? I don't know shit about art.
