cy twombly

Cy Twombly isn't new to the art scene, but this is for those who don't know who he is. His pieces are typically on large, neutral-covered surfaces with scribbles and abstract images. He is very well known for incorporating messy calligraphy. I do admit that some of his pieces look as though a preschooler was learning to write, but here are some of my favorites. The small proportions of these pieces don't do the actual grand-scale pieces any justice. Imagine full walls of messy words and drippy paint splatters.


Here is the little guy at one of his exhibits in Houston back in 2005.
