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.

Red, white, black are our true colours
For these colours we will fight!
Red, white, black will crush the enemy
And will bring back what is right!

I always liked Maxfield Parrish's art.....He was famous for his blues....among other things, of course.

You might like the art of Frank frazetta....Science Fiction convention's art shows are always filled with this type of art , and many artists do this type of art, but Frank was top in the field.....
