UnConeD for AVS. http://www.winamp.com/components3/de...onentId=125209

One of my friends writes the greatest movie scripts. He almost went and filmed one of them this summer, but he got lazy.

For AVS probably Nemo Orange, because he really shows artistic sides to AVS. Sure, UnConeD may be the best, but I've never seen his presets as real 'art'.

I like the Depthcore team for wallpaper, those guys are super awesome.

There was a girl at my school who is going to a visual arts college now who painted some really professional and neat stuff.

i don't really like that conceptual art. It's ok, but I don't like having to read into pictures.

IMHO Salvador Dali produced a couple well executed paintings, but he was mostly a hack. He only gets attention and recognition because he was a constant media bug, always doing everything possible to attract reporters and rumors.

Because of him, more accomplished, serious artists like Rene Magritte stayed away from the "Surrealist" label.

A hack hmm? INMHO I think he was one of the best Surrealists, not a HACK. For example....he took a picture of Adolf Hitler, turned it sideways, magnifyed the part of the picture with the mustache, and made it into a Landscape. A rather SUPERB looking landscape at that. Hmm, strange, doesn't SOUND like a HACK to me....
