I love Modigliani. Even though his work is very flat and modern, it's so emotional. I also like the way he fills the eyes in like little kids do when they color. I have this poster in my room. It's the first Modigliani I ever saw in person.

"La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans" ("Little Dancer of Fourteen Years") by Edgar Degas.

But as far as modern artists go, lately I've really been into the photography of Elle Moss, the illustrations of Kristiana Parn, and the overall brilliance of Miranda July.

Taking an art history course last year exposed me to a lot of awesome art that I'd have never taken an interest in beforehand, like:

Suerat


Lichtenstein


Marat


I also paid a visit to an Andy Warhol exhibit at the art gallery last year.
My favorite piece:

That's great. I looked at Marc Johns' website after you posted this and he has some pretty quirky/funny stuff.

I know I posted a funny one of his, but I really do think his whole post-it note art thing is awesome. Glad I could share his greatness with someone

I like Escher's symmetry and Dali for being so friggin out there. And Michelangelo for being inhuman.
