In honor of our new friend Rachel, who is a sweet Raccoon with amazing talents as a painter, I thought maybe some of you might be interested in sharing your own art. I am not an artist, but I love to enjoy it. My favorite artists are expressionist painters like Klee and Kandinsky. I am not much into photography but contemporary artist Todd Hido is one that just amazes me. It was like a key that unlocked a door inside me when I saw Hido’s collection called “House Hunting” for the first time.

I think all good art can be like that—it shows us something new—and the great art can show us something new inside of ourselves.

So is anyone one interested in sharing any projects? Or any favorite works of art that you enjoy? I just thought it might be neat to have a lovely little gallery here in our Friendly Candy Community and make Rachel feel at home!

    That’s awesome, I like Keith Haring too @mysticalmysty! Todd Hido has a lot of photography that I can’t post either, but it looks great in the art books that I have! It’s part of the story... hopefully it won’t be a problem if a few things get posted here but who knows... 😊

    Love these 2 ;) But one of my favourite is Salvador Dali! A little crazy 🤪 but a great artist! 

    There's an amazing Dali museum not far from Barcelona and a desert called the Dali desert in Bolivia. I've been there and it looks like it comes straight out of one of his painting (he never knew this place existed!)

    I also have the elephant from that painting tattooed on my leg - The elephant always wants to get higher but always keep the feet on the ground :star:

    I second that @QueenMia I love his weird paintings and his even weirder personality. One more artist I want to add to this list is definitely Frida Kahlo ♥️ Thank you so much for making this thread @wafercookieflippers I love it!

    I really enjoy surrealism as well! That is a great painting and I love Dalí. There is often much meaning behind what appears to be nonsense. I had found a neat gif of a famous Frieda Kahlo self-portrait awhile ago. (If I had not been so far into my studies when I took my first art history course, I may have changed my major!) 😍 @QueenMia @firebombmarkus



    I wish I could go back and figure out where I got this from. It was a tumblr art something?

    A print of this painting used to hang in my friend’s home. I always stared at it. I found this on the same tumblr art gif thing and it was the only other one I downloaded because I was so certain I could find it again.

    Hi!
    One of the works of art that I have seen and enjoyed most is a black hole by Anish Kapoor. In a picture it does not look much, but when you see one in reality you (at least I) are strongly influenced. He uses a matte black pigment. Which causes one to be tricked into experiencing the hole as completely boatless and endless.

    But my absolute favorite artist is a rather unknown Swedish artist named Ivan Stuffe. You can probably classify him in the group Outsider artist. He is not only a fanatic artist but he is also an amazingly skilled craftsman. He makes sculptures in stone, bronze, wood and he mixes these materials. The works are often shamanistic or spiritual. Unfortunately, there are not so many pictures online on his work.

    Wow! I love the black hole 😍 Thanks for sharing @stramonium

    Thank you for sharing those works @stramonium. They both look so intriguing. I bet they are each a unique experience. I know I am often very drawn to negative space but it rarely feels void emotionally. I hope you will share more.

    @Ashraf thank you so much for sharing as well! I bet you have seen and used some great artwork. I like Starry Night very much. One of my favorite things is seeing how young children interpret the work. I hope you will share more too!

    I would like to share something again, This time "Urban land art" that makes me laugh.

    To start with "The Navy Yard Sea Monster " It is made by Group X, an anonymous art collective. But the artists behind this group are named Luke Egan and Pedro Estrellas. 
    They also exhibit these tentacles in OpenArt in Örebro in Sweden. 
    Another sculpture displayed at OpenArt in Örebro is Floren­tijn Hofmans "Big Yellow Rabbit"
    I think both of these works are hilarious and unexpected and that's why I like them so much.

    One cannot speak of land art without mention Christo and Jeanne-Claude, they almost like mom and dad of land art. 
    A fantastic work of them is the "Wrapped Reichstag" in Berlin. That work is real hilarious and unexpected.
