    I made this thread for my appreciation of Claude Monet.

    I love his work, its really calm and peaceful. I could stare at that shit all day, it really blows my mind. Not only that but he adds like an "aura" that gives it a surreal feel, i especially like the works of his garden, which include the lillypads. Hands down this is my favorite artist. I would like for you 12ouncers to contribute to this thread by telling us about your favorite artist(non-graffiti) and say why you like their work and maybe add a picture or two. Doesnt have to be a famous artist, just tell what you like.

    Anyone know the guys name who painted this scene where it was floor and there were four stairways leading to it and the stairways came from different directions, it was like an optical illusion because they seemed to come from below, above, upside down and shit. Im not sure how to explain it better than that.

    I used to go to night school and there was a money painting in the waiting room before you go into class. I used to stare at that a lot. Always been fascinated by his work.
