For me, one of the GREATEST artists ever…who is also a modern day contemporary. Please, allow me to introduce you to the ‘wonderful’ artworks of Mr. Robert Liberace. ;-)
Rob Liberace: Master artist/Master teacher
To date, I have found only around 3 ‘modern day’ artists whose work I, really and truly, like…and, would also wish to collect…they all are masters of form…and, therefore, work in the strict ‘old master’ style using ‘realistic’ form very creatively.
I think, I should add one more person to this list; and, her name is…
→Jenny Saville (though, her taste in forms is a bit odd; think of overly fat people/or, diseased people/people who have had severe accidents/birth defects/etc. Nevertheless, I do fully acknowledge her ‘mastery of form’.)
Trying, deperately, to succeed in arts; always, most miserably, failing! Also, links to a few ‘teaching videos’ from one of my fav. artists works, Rob Liberace.
