Someone mentionned Bansky, now Goldsworthy so it's only natural to jump to:
Roadsworth

Roadsworth is a nom-de-plume, he chose it in part to reference Goldsworthy whom he saw as a big influence (think of it as an urban version using urban "syntax").

Wow, those do look really cool. If I ever need prosthetics, that would be my first choice.

I like a lot of sculpture, of all sorts.

One of my all-time favourites, though is "An Oak Tree" by Michael Craig-Martin. I saw it at the Tate, and got in so much trouble for taking a photo and then walking away giggling.

I don't think the artist meant to be amusing, but I find it absolutely funny.

Sounds very Orwellian to me (how many fingers am I holding up....if the State or the artist says there are three then there are three even though four fingers are being held up :-)

Does he have to change out the water, to prevent dust and settlement from getting in?

Lol, I don't think he meant to be amusing either. That is pretty funny, though.

Definitely the giant rubber ducky.
I also really like Salvador Dali's "The Persistence of Memory".

She's starting to get into Warhol. Which is kinda funny, as she wasn't cool enough to know who he was when he was alive. BTW- I was.

My sister the real "Artist" in the family (full art scholarship to Pratt and showings in Chelsea), loves Dali, but thinks Warhol should not be classified as an artist.

She sees him as more of an "arranger" than a creator.

I had a talk from an art professor about Salvador Dali today, in my critical thinking lesson. It was very interesting, dali was a very intriguing artist

Last year we had to do a project on an artist and a couple of my friends did Salvador Dali. I can't remember who my friend and I did it on... I'll have to ask...

I like Kandinsky in general. I did a black and white study of Composition VIII a few years ago in an art class. I'm not really one to gush about art though. I tend to just appreciate it and move on. :)

Frida Kahlo, any of her self portraits (she did many, many self portraits). I also like the fail whale.

I think Banksy often has the ability to be rather poignant :-)
