IMHO this is the world's greatest living painter at this time. His name is Odd Nerdrum and here is his main website http://www.nerdrum.com/ you can google him and learn much more of course.
I have always believed that the best art teachers are those who do what we strive to do. To emulate them and look at their work and then try to take it even further. (If you've followed my work thus far, I am thousands of miles short of his work, however I keep striving and growing).
Who is the giant who's shoulders you wish to stand on?
The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called "truth." ~Dan Rather
