also a big fan of Vince Ray. I know it's probably not the kind of art you were thinking of, but it's what I like.

Even as a pre-teen, I was somehow drawn (no pun) to the abstract expressionists. Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, Paul Jenkins, and many more. I think it has something to do with how the viewer has to project himself into the work, and determine what it "means" or represents to him.

The National Gallery here in DC had a show of Mark Rothko's black paintings about twelve years ago, and for reasons that are literally impossible to put into words, it was the most emotional experience I've had interacting with art. Absolutely overwhelming.

Mainly photography for me, too many to list but Gedney, Bullock, Evans, Minor White are way up top.

Painters/visual artists: Yeah Banksy, and Sol LeWitt, Wayne Thiebaud, Hockney, Haring as big names. I love graffiti also, follow a few great accounts on IG.

Salvadore Dali and Andy Warhol.
The art museum in Columbia,SC had an exhibit of Warhol's paintings seven years ago minus the Campbell's soup can. I was a little disappointed in this but it was still a treat at what the museum had on display. My wife did not understand the deal with A.W.'s artwork nor care.

What a very broad question. I prefer representational art more than abstract these days although I can sill appreciate it as well. The Dutch Masters work is endlessly fascinating to my eye. The Romantic painters as well. Very generally, artists that can paint light. They're to be found in most every school of painting.
