I have a small collection of links from various artists on here who i adore. But you know, there is a lot more talent out there, and alot more styles to see.
What are some artists you would say everyone needs to see? I mean living artists and still within our field (or at least close). I'm itching for inspiration here.
If you're that keen to see more styles and get inspiration, why limit yourself to "living artists in your field"?
Seems a bit daft to narrow your options like that.
Back on topic, I'd suggest checking out the "post some images that inspire you" thread in the lounge, there's bound to be something there that floats your boat.

The ACA gallery show he had a few months back was pretty amazing, he had a special reception for Syracuse Alumni (where he teaches, where I studied with him) and it was great cause an old lady in her 80's who was wacked out ask him how much his paintings where and she looked at a painting based around VanGogh's insanity and asked who it was and he said a representation of Van Gogh, she just said that it didn't look anything like him, to his face. I nearly lost it, it was so funny. Anyway get the new paperback book if you can it has a ton more repros than the old edition and is way cheaper.
I also love Käthe Kollwitz, Kline, Stills and Rauschenberg. I love the emotion in all of them.
