    My own brain is my favorite artist.
    It has all the features you would expect an outstanding artist to have. You can not see it, that’s why you can focus only on what it does, not what it looks like. It produces extraordinary and eccentric images i can easily call parallel worlds. It collaborates with other artists such as my hands and my eyes. It is alive, so I myself can interact with it. And finally it is the biggest inspiration i could ever have.

    right now i’m obsessed with Kathie Olivas, kozyndan, and Dok A!

  35. KMC

    I asked this question ten years ago in a performance called “Unspoken Word”. Personally, Its Keith Haring because he was the only one to believe in me. I owe everything to our friendship.

  36. Alyssa

    Alex Pardee
    Sam Flores
    Nate Van Dyke
    Greg “Craola” Simkins
    Aaron Hawks (yea so he’s a photographer, it’s still art!)

    All time favourites.

  37. Angi

    Dave White, he is the greatest and so unique in his style!

  38. STMC

    Alphonse Mucha – because he was 100 years ahead of his time , he created the idea of posters as art , and his linework and illustration are still unparalleled to this day. His use of line was ( and still is ) next level – and even today it influences just about everyone who illustrates or paints. There are a thousand amazing artists I can think of – but Mucha is the bomb! Maybe ask for top 10 favorite artists next time and give the rest of ’em a chance! haha.

  39. Wendooku

    M.C. Escher. That’s why I have his art tattooed on me.

  40. The Sandman

    Joe Ledbetter, closely followed by Amanda Visell. Michelangelo didn’t suck either. ;)

  41. coffeeplusmusic

    Let’s stick to the living ones. Currently obsessed with:

    Brooks Salzwedel
    Edwin Ushiro
    Joao Ruas
