Fav Art Thread Anonymous 1272
Enough of uglies!
Is there an art piece you love for some reason? Or an artist whose artstyle you are obsessed with?
This is Summer by Mucha.
Weeby stuff is welcome as well.
Going to dump a couple more.
Mark Ryden though every ~quirkyyy~ person out there seems to love him.
And finally Kishi Torajirou because he draws a variety of different body shapes (chubbs, skinny, tall, short) in a way that is rare in manga. And all his girls look so touchable.
I love Gustave Dore's art. Anything with a medieval, fantasy, or mythological setting is right up my alley.
This one is beautiful, anon
I like Francisco Goya's creepy dark works.
Pretty basic but I love Klimt. I even saw this painting in real life last year and it's so beautiful
There's a Mucha museum in my town, I can't wait to go and get some souvenir shop artbook.
Usually I'm not into modern art, but I love Egon Schiele's work. He was a protege of Gustav Klimt and has some of the weirdest illustrations. His line work is attractive.
Wie wird es enden Is a nice picture.
I love it because the first time I saw it I thought it was "Howl will it end"
Hell yeah, I love Yayoi Kusama. She's so cool.
I usually hate things like this, but thought this one was cute.
Oh I absolutely adore Schiele. My mother was looking to buy some artwork to decorate her house with recently, so I linked her to some of his work and to my surprise she loved him too. Now she has 3 prints in the living room.
I'm a really big fan of Yoshitaka Amano. He used to be the lead character designer for the final fantasy series and he illustrates these really detailed, romantically fantastical characters and settings.
God I remember him being huge in the late 00's, his shit was everywhere, him and the likes of Ray Caesar and Nicoletta Ceccoli.
I had a stage where I really obsessed over an artist called Jeanette Hayes. She mixes classical art with pop culture. I'm obsessed with her paintings featuring Pokemon. They just really sit well in my heart <3
Cliché, I know… But I love this Van Gogh so much. >>1288
This is so fucking cute.
I love Van Gogh too, and thats actually my fave painting too!
Have you read "Van Gogh: The Life" by Steven Naifeh? its the best biography out there. It will blow your mind.
Also a must-mention: the Doctor Who episode about him. (I dont like Doctor Who but this episode was really fucking good. The writers did a really good job on researching how he was).
I've heard about it! Thank you, anon I'm gonna look for it.
Never really watched doctor who though. Shocking, I know
I've always loved Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581 by Ilya Repin. I've since never seen a painting able to depict such raw, unprocessed emotion in this way, it's really transfixing.
I know its cliche, but my favourite painting as an edgy teen was 'Raft of the Medusa', and I still have a soft spot for it
nowadays I tend to prefer softer pre-raphaelite type of things but for some reason this painting in particular is so impressive to me>>1287
this is one of my favourite paintings ever
I love James Jean's art. He releases a timed print every 3 months or so and I've bought each and every one of them lol. My friends all joke that my house is pretty much a James Jean art gallery and that I could start charging people admission.
This is "Adrift" and it's in my top 3 favs from him.
Every day by René Magritte. It makes me feel things.
this one's great too
I'm going to dump a few of my favs. Mostly fan artists and pastel jfash stuff.
I seriously love almost http://eiffelart.tumblr.com/
makes. Adore the use of landscapes and how the characters interact with them. Much more interesting than just a floating character that tons of fanartist do
Their art feels like a mix between illustration and graphic design. I love how blobby and cute their characters are
My absolute favorite jp artist. They dont seem that popular compared to others though (like saaki pyrop) which makes me a bit sad.
i liked their older more painter-y style more but their new one is nice too
Jessicka Addams (ex-Jack off Jill, Scarling) has cute artwork even if it can be a bit cliché
I took one look at this on the front page and was immediately reminded of Jack Off Jill. This is totally her style. It's cute but she is the epitome of cliche like she's forever stuck in the late 90s.
This is one of my favorite paintings of all time, it's so intensely you can tell of an oncoming storm. I love the overall style of The Temple of Flora.
I would love to know the artists to these ones!
Teagan White, in case anyone was wondering (:
Yoh Yoshinari, they're scans from his artbook
anon you gotta tell me who the artist is i love this!!
This is the best one she did I think, plus, it speaks to me personally.
there's something about rene gruau absolute simplicity and use of colors that i adore
I will post some Kashima Echo.
I love glitching her photos. I guess this counts as art, right?
This one came out kind of cute I guess. This is a glitched version of this artists' original photo, OC I guess
damn, i feel like i ghostwrote this entire thread (minus a couple of the tumblr artists) a lot of these images are from some of my all-time favorite artists!
lately i've been really into vintage shoujo mangaka and their styles that inspire me to work harder on developing a distinct one of my own. also coming back into loving artists i used to cling to when i first started learning about art, particularly pre-raph/ impressionism and also more modern artists like audrey kawasaki, ryden, sorren, yoshitomo nara, pater sato, hikari shimoda and (pictured) liepke.
after a personal period of darkness and being really stagnant i forgot how much art actually makes me happy and inspired, and how much i missed studying and seeing it! i wish this site was a little faster with post frequency because you all have great taste
Screen Shot 2017-1…
pretty much every single thing i've seen ben constantine make gives me intense artist jealousy (plumpe_oystere on instagram)
Posting Mucha again because life is too short.
>>2495>>2495>small japanese artists>Shintaro Kago
This is incredibly embarrassing because they're not a "small artist" …. at all.
not surprising. you know you're not artistically gifted when you ctrl+v photoshopped pokemon into fine art paintings and then proceed to call it art. it's not even "mixing" anything, she literally just threw a transparent jigglypuff onto something that required tons of fucking skill and time. neither of these look good and i dont get why she added the random dog to the right of the shintaro kago tracing.
this reminds me of when i was in high school. two girls i really admired drew anime really really well, and i looked up to them and learned to draw cause of it, but then they sent me holiday cards one year with traced anime i recognized. it turns out all their art was traced. also despite what others believe, tracing is bad cause it gives you the final product without you understanding how you got there.
Trade off by Tama. Her works are so beautiful. I can only dream of being able to one day watercolor like her.
This would be a very cute banner.
Luzifer by Franz von Stuck
My favourite painter, he always only drew very dark subjects.
do photographers count as artists? if so, Im currently obsessed with sally mann
this might sound pretentious but I actually really like Rothko n I wish I could see his paintings irl
Claude Monet and the impressionist movement also makes me really happy
Sailor Moon and 18th century art (especially Elisabeth Vigee LeBrun) are like my two favorite things so this is perfect.
I had an art teacher who went to see some of his stuff in museums IRL and he said they're a pretty overwhelming experience. seeing his paintings in pictures in books or on the computer really does not do them justice.
Seconding this. I've seen one or two Rothkos up close and it's a different feeling than just looking at photos of them. They're big and they have a presence. How they're displayed is important too.
I'm not a big fan of Pieter Bruegel because his art reminds me a bit too much of naive art which I dislike but I love his painting "Netherlandish Proverbs". It's like a proto-meme or something, and it has so much time and effort put into it. Check out the wikipedia page, it has a list of all the proverbs illustrated: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netherlandish_Proverbs
The Meeting on the Turret Stairs by Frederick Burton
just…the way he’s holding her. so cute.
I only knew this as Fleet Foxes album art! Thank you for enlightening me!
hell yea I love paintings of Holofernes getting beheaded
I got to study these two in class and that's why I'm a fan. Gentileschi's appeals to me more because there's a real struggle going on and both women are really getting stuck in there. In Caravaggio's, it looks like Judith is cutting his head off accidentally and she's kind of conflicted about it lol.
Yeah, as if cutting off a head is as easy as slicing butter. But I love Holofernes' pose. And his muscles lol
Ayami Kojima (mostly known for her Castlevania art) she does a lot of interesting gothic horror art and I love her work (including her weird WTF NSFW stuff). I also want her art book but it's too damn expensive now.
Women & Food series. Painting by Lee Price.
I love her work, but I never realized she is a "her"!!!
Thank you so much for sharing this!! Of course I've seen Yayoi Kusama's "most famous" works in pop culture, but I thought she was all about huge polka dots and bold colors. Your post has me interested in looking up more of her work. Do you have any suggestions?
this looks like miles johnston's work
loish is another online artist i admire
A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Arthur Rackham
Norwegian Coast by Moonlight by Andreas Achenbach
incredible. The essence of the night is very difficult to capture.
A wonderful piece, by an artist I truly adore.
I agree, the essence of the night is not something that is easily reproducible in a painting, due to the darkness and whatnot. But the feeling they give me; amazing.
Man, his illustrations for the Divine Comedy are phenomenal! I love his depiction of the Forest of the Suicides.
Ronald Searle - Th…
Came across Ronald Searle purely by accident a couple of years ago. Turns out he's pretty famous since he was known for creating the St. Trinian's series of cartoons. He pretty much draws straight onto paper with ink as far as I'm aware.
Sidney Sime - Ther…
An illustration by Sidney Sime. A lot of his drawings can be found accompanying a series of short fantasy stories by Lord Dunsany.
i absolutely adore George Condos works! i love how everything is so fragmented yet so composed and something about it makes me feel emotionally… as if he is trying to reveal multiple layers or levels of feelings or intentions
I've liked this piece a lot since I was a child for some reason
Are you sure these are the original colors? The wikipedia page use this pic
The story behind the painting is cool too, the author was a women and had to resort to get help from Galilei (who was incredibly famous and influential at the time) to get paid, as the commisioner thought the painting was too crude to be exposed.
The use of the light here is amazing
I discovered Kaneoya Sachiko's work in 2013 and I've loved her ever since.http://yoiko-yokochou.com/
this artist on twitter, manuhamu. idk if shes still around, pretty sure she wiped all her art, but i saved as much as i could. sad :(
I love all the old classic clichés on here but I'm especially into this 3D kind of look if we're talking about more modern art. I like it best with bright colours on a blue tone background, like water or the sky. The way the paint comes off the canvas is stunning imo.
Conrad Jon Godly.j…
3D brushstrokes are so powerful. I love Conrad Jon Godly's works.
It could be dangerous to let me near such paintings, i'm not sure i would be able to resist the temptation to brake off some of that "excess" paint when no one is looking. Its a technique that distracts the viewer from the subject of the painting itself - technique becomes the subject.
I mean if that's the strategy it doesn't mean the painting is not still beautiful. I think it adds to the art rather than takes away from it.
Maybe you are just easily distracted
I knew someone whose parents had a pricey painting in their home. Their daughter did exactly that.
Henri de Toulouse-…
This haunts me. I know it's of a prostitute, but I identify with how the subject appears to be feeling.
Maslowski Stanislaw Wschod Ksiezyca 1884
Isaac Levitan, In …
Isaac Levitan, In the Forest at Winter, 1885
I really love tofuvi. Her art is just so beautiful, pleasant and comfy.
