www.leungstudio.com : I've been inspired by these California watercolor artists for years, a father and now his 2 sons
http://lachmangallery.com : simply strong contemporary expressionist art I like
How cool are these artforms! Numerous specimen of the Strandbeest evolution of great artist Theo Jansen's work since 1990. He tries to make new forms of live creatures on beaches. His humongus animals get their energy from the wind so they don't have to eat. Simply amazing!
