Seven Artists Cinco Loves


MARK BODNAR

I actually have this painting hanging in my house. A twisted cartoon sensibility with an undeniable sense of fun (even the toast has a face). Check out his website, http://www.markbodnar.com









SHAG (aka Josh Agle). A cool retro feel, with amazing colors. His website is http://www.shag.com









MARION PECK. I love this painting, which is called "Cow." If you do, too, check out her website:
http://www.marionpeck.com














JOE SORREN. Joe lives in Flagstaff, Arizona, and is responsible for the giant mural downtown. I love his work, but it freaks out my wife. If it doesn't freak you out, check out http://www.joesorren.com













NOUAR. You will either respond to this painting, or you won't. I love her stuff. Twisted, with the look of those old Fleischer cartoons. Her site is
http://www.noirnouar.com













GRANT WOOD. He's most famous for "American Gothic," but his Iowan landscapes are my favorites. Here's a page with a bunch of his paintings: Grant Wood








ROBERT LADUKE. Another Arizonan. Most of his painting are of trains and 40's cars pulling trailers. But I love this one of a house, called "Popcorn." Check out more of his art at http://www.robertladuke.com

So now you've seen the seven artists, let me know what you think. Vote for your favorite. Or suggest one of your own.
