i mean painted art. I like todd schorr. Joe coleman, salvador dali. I have seen a joe coleman painting and it was pretty small. This guy paints with a one hair brush most of the time. I saw it at the giger museum in gruyere. i was pretty excited when i saw it. And john because seriously, i mean.... Far out!

David Hockney, ‘Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy‘ was my introduction - I remember seeing it for the first time when I was about 17 - I’d taken myself off to the Tate in London, without really knowing anything about anything, and just really loved this painting. I still do.

Cezanne. There are days when I think that everyone else is just finger painting by comparison. But that's perhaps just a little harsh.

I love lots of others - Degas, Manet, Gauguin, Morisot, Chardin, Pissarro, Gainsborough, to name but a few - but Cezanne is in a league of his own.

Funny old game, art. I cannot abide Hockney. I stood in front of A Bigger Splash at Tate Britain a few weeks ago and just shook my head. Didn't get it. Didn't like it.

Then the other day a friend of mine likened some of my portraits to Hockney. AAARRGGHH!! That'll learn me.

I admit to being a fan of the classics. Monet does it for me, and I love all the old Italians. I only recently found out (while touring the Louvre) that there are less that 20 paintings that can be definitively accredited to DaVinci. Compared to others that's virtually nothing.
