As in alive and still working
Obviously most of yall know Takashi Murakami
Then one of my new favorites is Luke Murphy
hes kind of small right now but I love his newer neon/digital sculptures?
His other work is pretty decent too
Zhou Fan is also a big fave of mine
I cant imagine the amount of time gone into stuff like this
I really dig his expressive technique
I’m no where near the level that these people are at but I try to take a more expressionist approach when painting at the moment so I love to see stuff like this
Fiona Rae… her stuff kind of reminds me of Murakami’s
Nobuyoshi Araki is a really good photographer but its super erotic
Hes been in some controversy recently though, I wouldnt call it controversy so much as him just being a shitty human.
Daido Moriyama is a much more interesting photographer and not a scumbag as far as I know
he covers way more than just erotic photography
If yall want to talk about what artist you guys enjoy… I feel like theres a ton of great 21st century artist out there that, I wouldn’t have found out about any of these people on here hadn’t it been for instagram and my art instructors
