    I think Andy Goldsworthy is pretty badass. In a quiet, candid, "I'm going to spend six hours outside making a pine cone just because I really really want to and YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT" kind of way.

    On the riverbank in London next to the British Film Institute an overhanging concrete construction has been given over to graffiti legally. It is a brilliant explosion of colour and design frequented by new artists constantly changing what you can see. That is what we need more of. We need to change the perception of graffiti not only among the public at large but among the youth who might want to try it. We need to emphasise it's role as a reclamation of urban wasteland rather than as a gang tag tool. These kids need to see graffiti as a legal form of expression - most of the vile stuff I believe wells up from hordes of disaffected adolescents using it merely as a way to rebel. Render it acceptable, provide a canvas and the bad stuff should hopefully seep away.

    Aaaaw Bless, that really made me want to give him a hug, especially when he starts talking about spending time on his own and "in some ways I am..drained..by....people!" . I saw his work at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, absolutely awe inspiring.

    Badass ArtistsI vote for Egon Sheile, he explored human sexuality in often explicit ways, this one is from 1914...

    Surprised Da Vinci isn't on the list yet just for being, y'know, Da Vinci...

    "Let's see, what'll I do today... Oh, I guess I'll whomp out some exquisite sketches of Madonnas, then I'll go dissect somebody and do some insanely detailed sketches of their innards, and then I guess after lunch I'll invent the helicopter and a couple of devices for killing lots of people very quickly, and I'll have just enough time after that to work out a hydraulic system for turning this marsh into a viable canal network, and maybe do some jaw-dropping sketches of water patterns on the side..."

    So yeah. I want to BE him.

    Though Michelangelo, Picasso and Dali all get major props from me, too. Heck, Michelangelo walked out on a job when the pope didn't want to pay - how many people are badass enough to snub the pope?

    And I might throw Leonora Carrington and Leonor Fini in there, just because they always did whatever the hell they wanted. (Plus Leonor Fini lived in some kind of ruined monastery for a while with a horde of persian cats and an outrageous wardrobe. And three men on the side. That pretty much rocks in my book...)

    I love that when things in his work fall apart his reaction is essentially, "oh, bother."

    mad coincedence that the day you posted this I got dragged off to the Yorkshire Sculpture park as a birthday treat! Best day.
