MARK KOSTABI: Post-Modern Pop Artist Paintings
In the 1980's one of my favorite artists was a guy named MARK KOSTABI. He's still a favorite of mine today. He was kinda famous for being one of those artists who hardly ever paints his own paintings, a lot like Andy Warhol, ha ha. One of his gimmicks is to appropriate images from famous art masterpieces & blend them into his own artwork. Here's a few examples. If you look at his 3 paintings here you'll be sure to see examples from Art History. There's Marcel Duchamp, Piet Mondrian, Mark Rothko, Pablo Picasso, Matisse, Dali, & of course, Andy Warhol. Oh yeah, one last thing, the painting of the artist who has hung himself...that's a Desktop Wallpaper. Click on it for a larger version.
