Art is the food of the soul. It shows us all feelings and thoughts that we are not usually able to express ourselves. One form of art is painting and it is quite familiar to everyone. It is the art of using brushes and other tools for applying paints that have colors and pigments to a firm base, creating wonders. However, art has a lot of different forms that include painting, but that does not mean that the art of painting is limited at all, for it has various forms as well like gestural painting, composition, drawing, abstraction and a lot more; besides, you can use more than one form or even all of them at the same time to present whatever you want to express.
Painting is a form of art that has a long history that extends back to very ancient times in all the places and cultures around the world. This form of art, either in the east or west, has always played a great role in portraying the thoughts with a huge impact on the communities’ lives, so most of them left drawings of religious scenes or mythical creatures. Additionally, painting is deemed to be a raging fire of creativity that can never be put down, for it has been around for long in a lot of countries and keeps flowing unstoppably. Consequently, we have had so many artists types and painters; some of them are known to us and the others are not. In the following list, you will be introduced to the ten best painting artists around the world.
10 Rosson CrowRosson Crow graduated from School of Visual Arts in 2004 and had another degree in arts from Yale two years later. Nathalie Obadia was a French art dealer who actually discovered the artwork of Crow in 2005, so he organized her the very first exhibition of her works in France. After that, Crow’s work grabbed the attention of a lot of people, and she was chosen to be among several other artists in the Wall Street Journal article titled “The 23-Year Old Masters” That article selected ten of the best artists that were emerging back then in 2006 in the United States and, as luck could have it, Rosson Crow was one of them. Crow’s art is usually inspired by several citations, the culture of cowboy, music and, of course, theater. Eventually, she became popular due to her significant portrayals of designs that are full of nostalgic feelings; the ones that merge the historical references with the theatrical impression.
9 Ed Ruscha
Ed Ruscha is a unique painter who is known for challenging being categorized and striving to be as different. He is also known for using unusual materials while painting; these materials often include something as surreal as blood, dust, as well as Pepto Bismol. His talent is not limited to be a painter; he is a brilliant drawer and photographer who collects sets of humorous photos and adds them to his photographic books. Ed Ruscha lives in Los Angeles which helped in forming his paintings as they are usually dominated by a mixture of ironies and quirks of the life he witnesses in L.A. One of his most famous artworks was a painting that he did back in 1979 where he tried to emphasize the fact that using the slang language that we became more accustomed to these days is a real indication of the deterioration of the language; his painting was known as “I Don’t Want No Retrospective”; he intended to use the double negative method ironically for proving his own point of view.
