Question Who are your favourite artists? - August 19th 2009, 03:48 PM

So I don't know exactly where this would go because It's to do with school but not actually school, that makes sense haha.

So I'm joining sixth form in September and I'm studying Art, Media Studies, Philosophy and Ethics & English Lit.
For my art I've been asked to make a list of my favourite artists.

Problem is I don't have any favourites, good for some taking Art right? I just like being creative thats why I'm taking it but could you guys give me some of your favourite artists or any you know that I could look up?
It would help me a great and start Of my Art course, I'll just use the ones I like the most obviously.

Thanks for the help

What a coincidence, I was just thinking about making a thread like this!

Above all, my favourite artist is Tracey Emin - controversial I know

I also like Egon Schiele, Dorothea Tanning, Gerhard Richter, Stanley Spencer, Otto Dix, Richard Hamilton, Nadav Kander, Edgar Degas, Rene Magritte and a whole lot more.

Try not to worry about not knowing many artists - discovery is a great part of art. I'm sure you'll find it easy to find new artists when you're doing your sixth form projects, plus the teachers are there to push you in the right direction, too.

Edit - How could I forget Banksy?

I'm taking Art in sixth form too, i've taken it at GCSE Level as well.

My fave artists/sculptors/etc are:

Banksy - He is a famous street artist, his art often provokes thought and major controversy. He is amazing, seriously! I don't know anyone who doesn't like and admire his work.

Dale Chihuly - This guy has been sent STRAIGHT from the heavens, i'm telling you. I fell in love with his glass sculptures when i was studying him for GCSE art.

Henry Moore - Another sculptor; he created really lovely abstract sculptures, often based upon human life forms. I've been to some of his exhibitions, and they are really beautiful pieces of work; he had such a futuristic imagination.

Julian Beever - A street artist yet again. He creates optical illusion chalk drawings. They are out of this world!

Henri Matisse - His work is quite hard to define, he has some elements of realism mixed with more naive-like qualities. I particularly like his cuttings, they're so colourful and naive/abstract which is the type of art i like

Radi Nedelchev - I loved his paintings when i studied them for GCSE, they're also naive-like but very detailed.


& it's just like she's in another world.

A few people who did art in my school used postsecret.blogspot.com as "an artist". If you don't know it, basically people send in a postcard to Frank Warren who runs the site, with a secret on. Some of them are funny, but some are very sad. We used it as portraying human feelings and also how art can create communities.


You can't move mountains by whispering at them.

Take a look at my art here:

I don't really like any artists. I don'te ven really know of any except Van Gogh and Andy Warhol.

I love Banksy's work though, it is weird. I have never had any interest in art until I found his work.

Does M.C. Escher count as an artist?
