I'm not really big on painters and or paintings but these are cool, I like some of the surrealist paintings that I'v seen.

Whoa, this is always as difficult. I'm an art junkie and love several artists. Lately I've been very much into photography. But one of the most impressive exhibitions I've seen was Edward Hopper in London a couple of years ago. Night hawks is probably my fave from him:

I have to think more about this though.

I gave a security guard a slight stroke when I reached out and touched her skirt at the Met in NYC back in the late nineties when she was there.

I don't know why I did it, I know better than to touch art, it was a stupid moment but she's been my favorite ever since.

Me too. Just wonderful. I was fortunate to see a huge exhibit of his works in Toronto maybe 3 years ago. And there are some good pieces at MOMA that I saw this summer.

I also really like Paul Gauguin. I am not a huge fan of impressionism and I really don't like Monet at all, but there is great work to be found among the post-impressionists.

And I love Durer's drawings so much I can't put into words.

I am a huge art geek, mainly because I couldn't draw, paint or sculpt so I learned everything I could about it to compensate.
