Mine are as follows:

 

Alex Gray http://alexgrey.com/art/

 

Andy Goldsworthy http://visualmelt.com/Andy-Goldsworthy

 

Roy Lichtenstein http://lichtensteinfoundation.org/

 

Alex Tremulis http://www.gyronautx...x-tremulis.html (He's an industrial designer so that might not count)

 

Ron Mueck http://www.boredpand...s-by-ron-mueck/

 

H.R. Giger http://www.hrgiger.com/

 

I'm sure my list will continue to grow if anyone can list other good ones who I may have overlooked or hadn't heard of.

I never really found older pieces of artwork to be too fascinating for me personally, but I do adore digital and modern fantasy artwork like Louis Royo. 

Powerful, strong but beautiful and delicate women depicted as tribal warriors etc. I really like that stuff, along with fictional fantasy landscapes.

I first discovered Alex Gray after buying the Tool album Lateralus (then all the rest of them). He does the artwork for all of Tool's albums. I got to see him do a live painting at dance party a couple years ago.

David Devries - A professional comic book artist who takes children's monster drawings and renders them to make them look professionally made! http://www.themonste...ine.com/artwork

This is so cool! Kids love seeing what he does with their monster drawings. He is the bridge that merges the creative mind of a child and the talented precision work of a skilled professional.

I've shared this guy on Hip Forums before but figured it was worth a mention again. He sort of reminds me of Moebius less in style but more in concept, I guess?

Peter Max

Wes Benscoter, he was in my Graphic Arts class in high school and I would say, "Wes, can't you draw anything that looks nice!" He ignored me and went on to do album covers. He'd just sit down and draw this stuff right outa his head, I showed him how to use a mouse.
