Influential Visual Artists
Published on April 9, 2008
As a visual artist I definitely receive inspiration from other artist and look to them for ideas. I look at colors, composition and subject matter. I don’t think this is copying because no matter how hard I try to look like another photographer, It will still have a little of me in it. Kinda like what C.S. Lewis says “Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.” So here are some of my favorite artists; photographers, painters and film makers:
I love how creative Thomas Campbell is, he isn’t afraid to try anything, he has a careless attitude and does what he wants cause he wants to. His stuff isn’t technically perfect and thats bad ass. so simple, his paintings are amazing too.
