Zdzislaw Beksinski. I love his work. Traditional work. His digital pieces.. well, they suck. But he always amazes me with his paintings.

As you can see from my sig, I really love Caravaggio's "Judith Beheading Holofernes". This guy was a mad man, but knew how to make a haunting painting.

Van Gogh. A man who knew how to use paint and color so beautifully. I love "Night Cafe" just because I can relate to it so much.

Dali. I'm into surrealism and this man could make one crazy ass painting.

Duchamp. This guy revolutionized art and is one of the most important artists of all time. This one is just amusing. Underneath it's a French abbreviation for "She has a hot ass".

Picasso. He may have been a prick, but I love his artworks. I have this one hanging in my room. It's gorgeous.

Pollock. Many people may hate his work but I think it's brilliant. I also find it funny that artists couldn't top this one. It had all been done at this point. There was nothing more that could be done. "Number 1: Lavender Mist" is a great piece of work, and I actually did a response to it in one of my art history courses.

I don't know.  As you can see from Ruben's interpretation of "Judith with the Head of Holofernes", the expression conveyed in Judith's face clearly states that she's "owning this lame Holofernes".

True but Artemesia Gentileschi who did a "Judith" painting too said that Caravaggio's version made it look like she was "slicing bread". I don't know, but that's the part I love most about the painting--she makes it look effortless, which in a way is also portraying that she is owning this guy. Gentileschi's version was okay, but Carravagio's is still dramatic without trying too hard.
