I'm not a real big art person, but i'm a huge fan of Warhol. I know he wasnt the most talented maybe? But all i care is that it looks so damn awesome! I just love that whole 60's vibe (Pop-Art, yes i first came up mid 50's), and thats what i get out of it! The 60's freedom/woodstock.

Ah Mathieu30, I was just thinking of doing a google search on Rene Magritte when I scrolled further down your post. The surrealists esp., Magritte and Dali are two of my favorite artists.

For writers I love Tolkien, Robertson Davies, Roald Dahl, Paul Auster, Umberto Eco ....

I like political cartoons.

My favourite cartoonist is Steve Bell from the Guardian.

Some of his recent cartoons:

On Sarkozy winning the French Election

Unbelievable, as soon as I saw this thread I thought "Rene Magritte" I open the thread and there is the treason of images which is my favourite. I also love Dali and Picasso

NOTE: i must be getting senile, I forgot that I posted an almost identical response when the thread opened D'oh
