The Art Gallery
This doesn't necessarily need to be off topic, but I thought a touch of culture would do us all a little good. I chose to post this here in the hopes that sharing our favorite art works/ artist might provoke some interesting discussion and debate, while avoiding pictures of lol cats and such.
I say it doesn't need to be off topic, as I'm interested to see the fine works done by anime artists as well as those of past and current masters of visual art.
These guys start the show for me:
you can check out most of his work here: http://www.paolouccello.org/ but these three paintings of his in particular I find astounding.
Battle of San Romano
Bernardino della Ciarda Thrown Off His Horse
Micheletto da Cotignola Engages in Battle
From what I recall they originally hung in an estate in Florence, but were separated (thievery I believe) and the three haven't hung together since. Two were purchased by Du Louvre in Paris, while the third remains in Florence.
Not long ago I purchase the manga Purgatory Kabuki and I've been stoked on this guy's art ever since. I'm quite the fan of detailed art work, which is often cause for my appreciation of anime and manga, but Yasushi takes it overboard and manages to make even the elegant and beutiful look deadly and brutal, and vice versa.

Hm I was amazed by Gaudi when I was in Barcelona during summer. He isn't a painter but his buildings are piece of art!
I also vistited Chagalle, Picaso, Matisse museums bu I was captured by Dali. I never imagined that actually I would like a crazy yet genius painter.
I'd seen details of some of Gaudi's buildings and they're really quite impressive. They seem almost fairytale-like. I'd love to visit one someday, I'm sure it'd be quite a marvel.
Those buildings were awesome.
I have seen allot of this guys pics in my days.
He colors the street so it looks 3d.
Sam guy but on a wall:
The baby is real, but the rest is paint.
That chairwall is amazing, and I have seen that kind of paintingon Budapest streets during summer and they are awesome!
Chalk drawers do some wild stuff, though i do like that chair wall more.
I've seen this guy when I go downtown a good handful of times. For the most part I've seen him drawing vermeer's "girl with a pearl earing" though. It's rather impressive
Found some more!
chalk art overload! haha
I don't know if people dig on photography as an art. A lot of the time I don't, but there's a few folk from time to time who sway my opinion. This guy, August Sander is possibly my favorite portrait photographer of all time. Though it's so subtle, you can totally read into the character of every person he ever photographed. And he tended to photograph people in a manner to make them all seem in direct contrast to those they're with, despite their close relation. I love the last one.
He's more a personal favorite, as I find most people say meh. I thought I'd share some of his work regardless.
I love the photographer it's art too.
Frank Kunert (he makes maquetts and take photos of it):
I loved those pictures. The first one is amazing. The girl in the back makes up for a lot of thoughts. Who is he? What's he's doing there?
