I was a big fan of Heavy Metal magazine in the late 70's early 80's.. He got featured several times. His stuff is what nightmares look like.........

BTW -- don't drop acid and listen to Pink Floyd while looking at his artwork.... It's..... disturbing................

Hobo

I would NEVER listen to Pink Floyd. All their music is designed stadium rock, played as slowly as a slow jazz balled so every note can be heard in the auditorium. And a shit boring drummer.

I hate that band.

Sorry mate.

I'm OK with Banjo's opinion....

If EVERYBODY liked the same band - we'd never fit into the stadium.....

Obviously the meds are affecting your thinking so I'll let this slide. This time.

Laugh out load

Good point. But as the Floyd is a core part of my identity, ya ain't gonna say "I hate them" without me barking about it. There ain't really nothing to my barking. Conversely, those who hate Gwyneth Paltrow can never be my friend. Tongue

Don't get me wrong, illustrators are fabulous craftspeople and I enjoy their work, even considered being an illustrator myself, but there are differences between the two even if it's a bit fuzzy sometimes.

Carry on.

I think an artist is anyone who creates something beautiful. And art is any beautiful creation. Of course, this means it's all subjective. What's art to one person is not art to another. But I think the distinction above between fine artists and illustrators is a false dichotomy. Artists do sometimes point to unpopular truths, etc., but that's not a necessary condition for being recognized as an artist.

I own some really spectacular nature photographs which have no social context. They do nothing but present a view of nature, and they are most definitely fine art.

The Jan Guess painting I attached above is another kind of view of nature, an artist's impressionistic interpretation of a nature scene. No social context, but a prime example of fine art.

Not all illustration is fine art, but it certainly can be.

nosotros por lágrimas."

I missed that part. Used to be a trick question, to define art. I cheated:

Art is that which is created by artists. Big Grin

Not that I don't feel your point, but Sylvia Plath is my favorite artist; perhaps you want a "fine art" thread?

Oh, and Hug

Here's some fine art for dancefortwo Smile

I always thought Edvard Munch had some hauntingly beautiful pieces.

The Dance of Life

The Day After

And probably his most well known, The Scream

I really really like Starry Night ... I should buy a copy, and put it up. Thumbsup

I have some medieval illuminated manuscripts on a couple walls, .. 2 very small French ones from the prayerbook of a French noblewoman from Rouen about 1440, and 2 from an antiphoner (chant) from a Spanish monastery from about the same time, but much larger ... folio size. If I could find an intact "Magnificat" that's about the only thing I would buy at this point. I like posters.

I'm fascinated with the geometric prints of Piet Mondrian .. my aunt has one in her house, and I think I need one, (a copy of course). Every one is different, the simpler the better ... so I'm still deciding.
