There are probably thousands of different art styles out there, which made me wonder-what is everyone's favorite art movement/style, and why? It can be an anime stlye, but I'm thinking more of things like Cubism, Impressionism, etc. Here are a few examples of art styles for people who aren't familiar with them: http://library.thinkquest.org/J001159/artstyle.htm

Personally, I love paintings and especially Impressionism because I love seeing how colors reflect and such to become what we see, not what we know. And if it's a city at night with some rain to add an array of lights, reflections, and textures, then my goodness, it just doesn't get much better than that in my book.

I hope this topic isn't too broad....

I like surrealism :3 Especially Dali's work. It reminds me a lot of the way I dream.. that something's always out of place.
Impressionism is a close second though. I really like the way that the colors in the painting can seem to be a part of a shimmering reflection, or like it's being distorted through blurry glasses. Monet is probably my favorite impressionist.
So.. If someone did surreal impressionism, it would be amazing.

Admittedly , as much as I am into Pop Art , I'm also fairly fond of Surrealism , Realism , Postimpressions and occasionally , Abstract paintings.
Still , as long as the artwork is interesting / beautiful enough , I don't have much to say :P

I'm a fan of most all art styles, but I've got to say my number one favorite is Impressionism... and specifically the artwork of Claude Monet. I love his paintings from his garden at Giverny. (But then again, I love paintings with floral motifs in general). It's the combination of floral subject combined with the almost dream-like quality of impressionist paintings.

Surrealism, HANDS FREAKING DOWN. I also worship Dalí, seriously.
Oh oh, shameless but please watch this video, it's a collab between Walt Disney and Dalí, it was featured in a retrospective on Dalí's films and paintings at the MoMA in New York (so blessed to have seen it ;___;) Click!

Close enough, I'd have to say Art Nouveau, I'm very fond of the intricate design of the frames and how dramatic, yet very organic, the scenes portrayed are <3

I've grown to appreciate most art styles (my professor would be proud), but I have to say I'm in love with impressionism, especially the works of Degas, Renoir & Monet. I love the effects of light & shadow in a painting, especially in Degas' ballet pieces.

I'm a little freaked out by surrealism. I think it's largely because it's akin to seeing in to the head of someone else, and the fact that much of it is based off of dreams makes it a breeding ground for Nightmare Fuel. That being said, I'm also fascinated by it at the same time. I had some pretty bizarre dreams after my research paper on surrealism. o_o

Mine is romanticism and artists like Delacroix and Friedrich. Painting style is realistic but strongly symbolic and unreal at the same time. Hard times, artists were kind of crazy back then^_^ it was always the most interesting style for me, I'm always imperessed by it^_^

I'm sadly not as knowledgeable about art as y'all seem to be...
I really like chibi art or cartoons where people look...distinct? Like in the Simpsons, for instance. I guess you could say I like pop art then? :P

But otherwise...I wouldn't say it's a style, but pictures with lots of stuff going on in them or if they have a historical context, like showing a battle or something.

One of Diego Rivera's murals for example:

And I guess it even has a sorta distinct, cartoony quality too....

Woah, that collab was stinking awesome. O.o I have to admit, I tend to like surrealism-especially since my cousin made me a surrealistic birthday card, lol-though I also find it a bit eerie. As Rain said, it is kinda Nightmare Fuel for me-but in a cool sort of way.

Also, anything with symbolism is good to me.

I actually really like hyperrealism, especially on a huge scale, simply from the level of obsession needed to create something like it. Interesting that my other favorite style would be impressionism, which is sort of the opposite in how it relies on perceptual tricks to portray things. But I like it because of how it plays with perception on a physical level.

Most people seem to like surrealism, and while I definitely like it and appreciate it, personally I'm just interested in…well, what simply exists already and different ways of portraying it, because I think the world is already a very interesting place, and seeing it through an artists eye can give you a new perspective on something mundane.

That's pretty hard. Easier for me to just go with time periods. I'd say the best time period in art was the High Renaissance.


Least favorite style? Cubism, Picasso is overrated.
