I tend to appreciate anyone who is doing something well and unique.  There has to be some level of skill there for me to really dig it.  I've met a few of cool artists through my job that are doing some cool things.  You should check out Jimmy O'Neal at http://overawed.com, Kiel Johnson at http://kieljohnson.com and Lee Walton at http://leewalton.com.  All three of these guys are really thinking outside the box.  They've found ways to incorporate what they're interested in into art.  I really like it when an artist can find a voice that's different from everyone else's and still incorporate a huge level of skill.

Actually, I am quite amazed at the talents and ability of Matt from this website.
 I was self taught until I found this site and Matt is my favorite in all categories.

I love the French Impressionists - Cezanne, Sisley, Pisarro and others - they're probably the reason I decided to pick up a pencil in the first place.

H everyone, I agree Raybrite Matt is a brilliant artist & illustrator.
I love his drawings of people's houses I think he used to do by commissions but I love all of his work, he makes it look very easy on videos and sometimes it's not lol 😜
My favourite painter off all time is John Constable but I also love Monet, Vincent Van Gough and cezanne

Yayoi Kusama is a personal favorite. Her infinity mirrors art show in Seattle is definitely one you want to check out if you get the chance.
