View Full Version : Guess the Painter: Modern Artist, Preschooler, or Elephant?

Jean Miotte is a semi-famous contemporary artist who resides in New York, NY. Her work is displayed in many private galleries, and a few public galleries, including the famous Guggenheim Museum. She expresses herself with gestural brushstrokes and thick color pools, inspired by her inner conflicts.

Jackson Pollock was an influential American artist and a major force in the abstract expressionism movement. By the mid to late 1940's he developed a painting method which made him famous: dripping paint on large flat canvasses to create expressions of "unconscious imagery". He died in Long Island, New York, in a car accident.

Kamala the elephant resides in the Calgary Zoo in Alberta, Canada. She expresses her mood through a form of "finger (or, should we say, trunk) painting", using custom made brushes onto an easel mounted canvas. Some of her paintings have sold for over 2,000 dollars!

Ian Ford is a preschooler from the United States. He likes to eat paste (just kidding).

I will attach the pictures in separate posts below. Feel free to guess away.

#6 was the hardest....I thought Pollack at first but he usually doesn't have the straight lines so much. It also looks framed too????

Here let me solve this, be it artist, elephant, or kid, they all look like shit and whoever painted them should not be allowed near brush and canvas again.

I definitely got that implication banyon. Of course that is all a matter of opinion. I think Miotte's work is beautiful...but then as someone with a Bachelor in Fine Arts, I love abstract art.

And banyon, I am holding you to delivery of the actual wine...not just a pic! :p

I would refer you to this thread (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?t=146947&highlight=Moooo) for potential reasons delivery might not be forthcoming immediately. :D

That's ok, crappy art and bad sarcasm (and bad wine) are a natural fit. :)
