Too many favourite artists to mention. But as we've had all modern stuff, here's something from John Atkinson Grimshaw, an English 19th c. painter, mainly of city-scapes. He's sometimes lumped in with the pre-raphaelites, but I personally prefer his work to Hunt, Milais and Co.

To some it might appear a bit sentimental - but what the hell. I quite like that aspect of his work.

I'm totally digging these century old paintings. I especially like the way the wet rainy street reflects the city lighting so well.

Here's another artist I overlooked: Ralph Steadman

 

He is best known for his illustration work he did for Hunter S. Thompson's novels. I had this poster of his in my dorm back in college

And here is some Breaking Bad art he did of Walter White and Saul Goodman

Very cool! I especially like the 3rd one. Good use of the heavy brush strokes that add extra depth to the layout.

I'm glad you like them. Shaman too.

 

I do actually live with a print of the second of the two on my wall. It's hard to find art one can live with..:)

Yes, the second painting is the one I favored, too. It is awesome! hmmm...I might look into a print of that, as well....

 

You are right...There are so few paintings i would want to hang on my wall  that i would want to look at every day....so in essence to live with. that is what I meant... you understood..... :)

 

Although, there were a few times, when I visited people who had walls covered to covered with paintings in every room..one right after the other , so nothing stood out.....Walls were just covered....That is cool in its own way.....but I did not know what i was looking at in those houses. I have very very things hanging on my walls....

After looking at countelss Grimshaw paintings, I chose one print so far. it reminds me of here.....and it is the moon in most of his paintings that gets me. I always paint the moon....and am back to making my own night mn paintings.... Grimshaw is the best! :) What an inspiration!

Moebius is also the artist who drew Blueberry, one of my favourite 'comic book' series!

 

Since comic book artists have been mentioned, I'd like to submit Frank Quitely and Mike Mignola.

 

I'd also like to add that Rob Liefield is a talentless hack :D

I have mixed feelings about Charles Billich's paintings.Not sure what he is trying to say in his abstract paining s I quite like this one from the Beijing Olympics.

That's the thing with me and most abstract paintings. After I found out the meaning (and I'm in an artsy mood to spend a thought on abstract art that doesn't appeal to me at first) I can suddenly agree with the value or purpose of such a piece. I still wouldn't hang it on my wall but at least I can see and agree with where the artist was coming from then in a lot of cases. But still far from always though.... :D
