“Creativity takes courage.”
Art is something which fascinates me a lot whether it is a nice theater play, a good painting or a fascinating sculpture, I just simply cannot control my emotions upon getting exposed to art. Just like any other individual not every piece of art is admired by me. There are specific individuals whose artwork really attracts me. In this article I will list five of the most favorite artists of mine. Of course all of these artists belong to New York. The artists have been briefly discussed in the headings below.
Kehinde Willey is someone whose portraits really fascinate me. Wiley is blessed with two separate talents. He is exceptional when it comes to painting and is simply awesome in sculpturing. There are many art works of his which are famous all over New York. Around 60 of his pieces are displayed in the famous Brooklyn Museum. Another important thing about Wiley lies in the fact that he was admired by Michael Jackson for his equestrian paintings. Wiley was born in the year 1977 and is a big name in New York when it comes to naturalistic paintings.
Born in the year 1968 Teresita Fernandez is a well-known visual artist primarily popular for her beautifully crafted public sculptures. She designs her sculptures with lot of creativity and utilizes different materials unconventionally during her designing process. Her work is a mix blend of psychology and perception. It seems that her inspiration comes from natural phenomena and landscapes. There is flair of cultural references and history as well in her works. Optical illusions are the key feature of her sculptures. Teresita also has the privilege of receiving a Guggenheim Fellowship and a MacArthur Fellowship. She has also officially served in US Commission of Fine Arts.
These were the five artists which I think are the best currently. As a New Yorker you can easily find the works of these popular names in different well-known Galleries that are available here in New York. Apart from these aforementioned artists there are several others which I have not covered in this article. You can know about other popular artists by clicking this link by NY post.
