I was curious since this was a photography and art section, if anyone collects any sort of art. It doesn't have to be expensive, but is there a style, medium, or artist that you like?

Post some pics of what you like, where you tend to look, etc. I will put some up later, but I wanted to get some other ideas, see what others like, and get some other ideas on where to look to see if anything catches my eye.

I'm all over the board. I don't really collect anything, I used to go to the Art Museum 2-3 times a year just to take it in.

I like a lot of stuff Banksy does. I particularly enjoyed the movie that covered his 30 days in NYC. Some folks might not consider it art, but I like it.

All over as well. I like the things that make me feel something.

That's a good way to put how I am as well. Most art I like to try to think what the artist was thinking when it was created. I think that public art tends to draw my interest more nowadays than stiff, baroque art. I still have total appreciation for most anything (as I have about zero creativity), but it seems a tad stiff.

I am a fan of Salvador Dali - he had his own interpretation of a lot of things...and many of them make me think that he was on something. I am not just talking about the melting clocks, but more of the flaming giraffes and the other strange stuff in a lot of his paintings. Just off the wall stuff that nobody would ever think about.

I mostly buy posters (screen or letterpress). Our office is set up as gallery on first fridays here in the Crossroads, so we get a new "collection" every month to enjoy.

I appreciate a lot of art though, I am mostly intrigued by the actual execution of things, I got enough conceptual-ness at KCAI. Anything Renaissance to me is amazing. Just the scale and depth that you experience when you see them in person.

Caravaggio (Can be seen at the Nelson)


I have a few pieces from these guys.
Hatch Show Print
Hammer Press

And a couple from a friend of mine locally.

I've got a couple of pieces hanging in my room that I pulled out of a tweaker/squatters crash pad when I shot a film there. They are really weird and cool looking. One is on a 2x3' piece of plywood and one was painted on an old window. I'll get some pictures when I get back to St. Louis.

I picked up a few vintage french posters a week or two ago, which are getting framed and have another piece in the mail...nervous as all get out that it makes it in one piece.

I was assured that the posters were in a crush proof tube...one of them got crushed. Just by luck, the tube was about a foot longer than the poster and that is the portion that got smashed.

Denny Dent is one of my particularly favorite "artists". I am not an art collector, but i do my own oil and acrylic paintings. Just getting into 3d style painting as well as stenciling.

I tend to collect screen print art, mostly in the smaller sizes like 8x10 and 11x14.

Part of me wants to get my own place, just so I can hang up whatever Art I want on the walls. I'm not quite ready to give up saying I'm going back to KC eventually though. I'll probably wait about 4 years to make that decision if I don't go back next year. I have been thinking about getting a cheaper easel (my expensive one is at my parents house in KS), setting it up in the garage, and taking up painting, even though I mostly did photography and charcoal in high school and post.
