Fukuda: He paints like a geographer makes his map: accurately, smooth, color sensitive. The result is a magnificent abstract modern painting with texture popin'up like a lacework. He is a modern brazilian painter.
Patrick Caulfield: Although, maybe classed as "pop art" his use of colour and shadows transcends this level.
Wyland: Known for his "Whaling" walls and undersea paintings, I am always in awe of his ability to capture the wonderous creatures found under the sea.
Andrew Wyeth's work combines great sensitivity and subtlety with amazing technical mastery. No other artist alive today is capable of such fineness and brilliance.
Carole Hand: Her art like jazz is fluid, spiritual, suprising, dynamic and soulful.
G. Harvey's street scenes and Civil War paintings are simply great. I look forward to his new releases.

Bryan Smith: While his medium [computer-generated art] is unusual, his results are amazing.
The works of Damien Hirst offer another battlefield for Piccaso an Duchamp. He makes us look as and think. Totally disturbing and *#$%*@* beautiful at the same time.
Robert Rauschenberg is for me, a satisfying balance between the conceptual and the aesthetic. His versatility is evident in his diverse catalog, and his experimentation with various movements and techniques make him an important and respected figure in the "art world".
Balthus paints the enigmatic in a uniquely powerful way.
Tracey Emin: british artist, turner prize '99 nominee. interesting because she might be genuine or might be an act.
Louise Bourgeois: I think she is the greatist living artist, and through out her very long career, her work has always been fresh.
Howard Hodgkin: Optimal appreciation of the painting medium through which to evoke affective and intellectually stimulating imagery.
Andrew Wyeth: I've met both Mr. and Mrs. Wyeth in person and it impressed me how they are down to earth people who loves art and lives for art.
Godwin Bradbeer: Sensual and spiritual, Godwin's drawings at their best touch the numinous. His "Man of Paper IV" was the stand-out winner of the 1998 Dobell Prize (Australia), and his work continues to develop in inspiring, challenging and witty directions.
Damien Hirst: After the glory and optimism that was Modernism, and the playfulness that was PostModernism, he serves as a counterpart to all of our inbuilt inhibitions, and all of our preconceptions about the serious purpose of art... while remaining serious nevertheless.
A visionary artist who is renown both as painter and sculptor and holds the world record price for a portrait of a living person at $2.1 million, Brett-Livingstone Strong intends to create an 1100 foot tall "Angel Monument" for Los Angeles. His paintings, inspired and inspiring,are testaments to the incredible life force of our universe and the potential of humanity. Commissioned works include portraits of Dr. Armand Hammer and Michael Jackson as well as the "Bicentennial of the Constitution" Monument unveiled at Independence Hall. Mr. Strong is becoming the Michaelangelo of our time.
Dale Chihuly: I love his work and I love the fact that he is the only artist in the world who has been able to pick up Andy's social gauntlet and run with it. Kind of a "sword in the stone" phenomenon. Name anyone else who is on a first name basis with Rauschenburg, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall and Hillary Clinton?
Bill Viola: Never in my life have I ever walked into a gallery where I felt nervous, anxious, excited, and curious all at the same time. Bill Viola's work can arouse in me all of these emotions simultaneously and make an unforgettable impression on my existence.
