Which art style inspires you most?
What type of art do you like to look at and learn from? Do you incorporate elements into your own style or stay true to form?
B&W photography from the master Henri Cater-Bresson - genius with a camera
I like painting inspired by surrealism.I think that the best way to learn something is from the masters, so if I had the chance I'd definitely choose Salvador Dali!He was the most real surrealist:p
I love realism, simply because there is such a high standdard of finish that the image looks almost photographic! My favourite artist over the last few years is Jeffrey Hayes, and I would recommend that anyone interested in Art should look him up! His work is exceptionally detailed. Wish I could do it!!!
Living and breathing art is my life and full time career...but this question seems not to have an exclusive answer. I love all forms of art, every movement, and every medium. I may not like some pieces but can appreciate the work on its own merit. With life you should never limit yourself by liking only one thing...I tend to stay true to form when creating my works. Great question one that needs to be explored a bit more.
I couldn't agree more I now have my own answer and yours because they are very much like my own sentiments, thank you for saving me the time, Gareth.
Thank You...someone else that thinks like me...scary...take care
I like that. It is great to appreciate all art for what it is, and to enjoy something from each style.
Visual art does it for me and I do not have any simple preferences. I have access to more information than I could ever consume in my entire lifetime and tools that I can use to produce original visual images in an instant. I have access to the biggest public art gallery ever known to the human race and I use it. My work has been seen by over a million pairs of eye balls and I can prove it. I would not have even dreamed about this ten years ago. I have moved from being a simple painter into a multimedia creator who can work in text, video, images, audio and all together at the same time which I do because I can.
Human beings and the World Wide Web inspire me like nothing has inspired anybody who has ever lived before me because nobody could access this in the known history of the entire human race until now.
This is the future of the future.
I love surrealism and abstract expressionism and impressionism. They are just so visually appealing and something about each one attracts me differently.
It's hard to pick one style of art, but I'll try to narrow it down. I like art that speaks to me on an emotional level. It could be a rich color, an unexpected line, or an expression on a face that draws me into a piece of art. I try to transfer as much of what I'm feeling into my own work as I possibly can.
I would say the middle Edo period in Japan. It was a great time for combining textural elements with strong design. I really enjoy the many symbols from nature used in middle Edo period art.
I have been inspired by the Early and High Renaissance art and the artists of that time who were accomplished in many fields.
I would have to say a combination of all different American Arts and cultures to African art and culture. Structured, beautiful and colorful when all put together.
I enjoy painting and viewing the pictures of the great artists in history. My personal favorite is impressionism. The blending of color and texture is important.
As an amateur artist and sketcher I've been influenced by many different individuals over time - Escher, Turner, Mondriaan, Hopper, Picasso - Hepworth and Moore the British sculptors were great sketchers - I try to learn from all art and make connections to my own experiences and my own thoughts and ideas and creativity. I write poetry and I'm inspired by all kinds of art but find that only certain creations motivate me to write.
Modern art - shall we say since Duchamp - stimulates the mind more than the heart I find so i get a buzz from looking at all sorts of stuff - performance art, installations, sculpture, abstracts and so on.
Perhaps the most moving works of art I've ever seen are the animals and hands painted by pre-historic people in the caves in France and Spain, from 12,000 - 25,000 years ago! Some of the oldest images in the world. These are so humbling, yet beautifully rendered. I'd recommend anyone with an artistic streak to see them!
I get inspiration from many things
but mostly from artists that are inspiring

Classicism, neo-classicism, impressionism, surrealism or realism...where do you cast your lot?Images say a great deal, and as a visual artist, finding where the statement is made most effectively is very important to me...

What is the one thing that inspires you to create art?Everyone has their own reasons for creating. I wonder if there is a common thread that we artists all share. What causes us to desire to create?
