The Art Posting Topic


Recommended Posts

Use this topic to post paintings, sculpture, architecture that you like. Anything from Prehistoric Art to art being done today is fine.

I'm going to start it off with the artist I'm doing a biographical sketch on: Jasper Johns. He's probably the most intellectual of the artists from the height of the Pop Art movement. Though he isn't as famous as Warhol, Thibauld (Who, according to an Art teacher at my school, is probably the biggest living artist in the world. But Johns is still alive.), and Lichtenstein. Fun fact, yesterday, Jasper Johns was in a car accident and was given a written warning for travelling too fast for conditions.

And finally, my favorite work of Jasper Johns.

most surrealism is really bad, actually. i was drawn in by ernst and a couple others but digging around a lot just made me sad :'(

so all i've been looking at recently are contemporary illustrators like the stuff in my sig and av, but here's my fave painter: dorothea tanning:

german surrealist, spent a lot of time with max ernst (might have been married to him, i can't remember). doesn't get ANY recognition in the art world, and no one knows why. i've shown her to painting teachers of mine and blown them away, having never heard the name before. ANYWAYS:

there are only a couple that people feel like they've seen before:

here's the one that drew me to her initially:

Dorothea%20Tanning,%20Guardian%20Angels,

she had three basic styles she went through, starting with the purely realistically rendered stuff like the ones above, then this AMAZING chaotic, hard to explain emotionally driven stuff (which i've never found pics of online :\ ), then a weird goopy kind of style which she also did fabric sculptures and collages of:

i've got tons more stuff for this thread in the future. prepare for inundation

oh yeah, and i saw wayne thiebaud speak when i was in high school

I totally agree with you tcz. Tanning is really awesome. Last year for English I chose one of her poems as my favorite poem for my poetry project. I thought her poetry was good until I saw a painting of hers. Which turns out to be your favorite and my favorite. xD

Anyway, some of mine are pretty much anything by Yoji Shinkawa

Zilon's works like this one:

The-Cat-with-the-Hat.jpg

Chet Zar's stuff (reminds me of Giger in terms of the creepy/cool factor)

blackmagick5_op_495x600.jpg

Dan Quintana's Angel

Min-woo Hyung's works (so glad I got his artbook)

Isabel Samaras' paintings are funny

There's stuff by street artists and tattoo artists but I don't feel like searching for them right now.

trust me, NO ONE knows of tanning. i've axed a lot of fine arts majors and teachers at my school

i need something to do before i work on this drawring some more, so....

as people will probably figure out, there are a few old masters who i look up to. namely, GOYA:

goya's life was way crazier than i have time to get into so i'll just show some paintings/etchings he did and if anyone's interested in learning about one of the raddest dudes in the history of art there are millions of books on the dude

the usuals:

saturn

cudgels.jpg

the shootings of may 3rd, 1808

goya.shootings-3-5-1808.jpg

but i think his etchings are way cooler, especially if you can find a book/resource that describes goya's motivation behind them:

the sleep of reason produces monsters

goya_sleep_of_reason.jpg

against the common good

goya_general.jpg

you who cannot

goya_who_cannot.jpg

one trivia bit: goya wasn't real happy with the spanish (i think) royalty, but since he was in demand they still commissioned him to do portraits of them. just because he felt like it, he'd do the portraits but manipulate their facial features so they look retarded: lantern shaped head, the eyes, etc

Goya's one of my favorite Spanish artists. Of course, my favorite is this dude called Picasso. You might have heard of him.

self1.jpg

This is Picasso when he was like 15.

picasso-self1.jpg

That is a young Picasso, probably around 19 or 20 (In other words I forget when it was actually done)

picasso-self2.jpg

This is Picasso a few years later.

vieux_guitariste.jpg

This is from his Blue Period (Which actually came before he did the Cubist self-portrait I believe.)

picasso.jpg

I'm pretty sure this is the first Cubist painting ever done. Making it arguably one of the 5 most important paintings ever instantly.

Picasso.jpg

It's Three Musicians.

duchamp's nude descending a staircase is usually recognized as the first cubist painting, but picasso did the les demoiselles d'avignon way back in 1907. he just left it under his bed for a couple decades because he was afraid of how people would react

and since i'm here....

slipping in and out of art history books, painting cubish and futurish before the respective movements even began.... FRANZ MARC:

And now it's time for one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Jackson Pollock:

These don't do a great representation of the depth of his paintings since to really marvel at them you need to see them up close.

Isn't that the artist whose paintings were hung upside-down in a museum for years before anyone realized it?

^ that's actually a pretty cool painting

random pollack story:

these two curators are cleaning one of his pieces one day when one notices a cigarette butt stuck into it. it falls out and they wonder what the deal is when they notice it was IN the paint, like it had been stuck there when it was wet, meaning Pollack himself was doing his thing when he just decided to *ptoo* huck his sig into the painting and leave it there

so the dudes rush down to a store and buy some cigs, smoke one down to just the right size, and carefully put it into the place where the other one was (which had either been lost or didn't fit anymore, i can't remember)
