Modern art is Cool?

Currently I am trying to figure out who my favorite artist is. I think it is important to have favorites of things, because in many ways they help define you. So, I am delving into the thousands of years worth of art and trying to figure out what I enjoy the most. Today I spent some time with good old modern art and found a lot of stuff that I like.  Here is a random selection:

 Franz Kline

Alberto Giacometti
Salvador Dali

Pablo Picasso

Ad Reinhardt

Otto Dix

Man Ray

Piet Mondrian

Constantin Brancusi

Jacob Epstein

FrantiĊĦek Kupka

The Take Away Shows - LA BLOGOTHEQUE

I have been lost in this site ever since I found it.  It's just has movies of tons of incredible bands, most that I have never heard of, playing live in random places around the world.  I haven't listened to anything that I don't like yet and the filming is interesting and beautiful.  Be warned if you are busy don't click on the link or you will be sucked in.

George Lucas

"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you are doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle.”
P.S.  I just stole this from a friends blog.  Good find Quinn.
