there are many many artist around the world, each has different talent in each area.
since i am interested in the field of fashion sense, a lot related to women and fashion and fantasy as surreal artwork, a lot of my favorite artist are likely to produce art work that does not mean anything but in a crazy surreal way.
the first person will be David LaChapelle. he was the first artist i like when i started my ib. he is a photographer that works in the field of fashion, advertising and fine art photography.
these are some examples of his work:
this one is called hamburg Kennedy. what i like in this picture is the woman with colorful hair that contrast with the blue sky. the photo attracts alot of attention especially with the big marble in her hand with an extra large fingers on the other side. with my own experience, i feel like surreal art work attracts more attention from the audience than normal fine art painting, because first it is weird and interesting, it does not make any sense but people will try look in to it to get the answer like "what is this artist thinking?" there are many more that i like about in his work. full of humorous style.
this is one of his last exhibition photo. i love the way he combine sex and humor into one piece of work. A lot of his work are naked girls, strong contrast with the background and setting. something that you do not realize how exotic it can be. i like howeach photos can catch your attention but really it does not mean anything, only to confuse you.
i really like how he combine his fantasy to reality, something that can never happen but could be seen.
