Egon Schiele will always be my favorite artist. I fell in love with his ability to create confrontational portraits with his signature nervous and loose line work. This signature graphic style welcomes distorted figures and defies conventional norms of beauty, which is one of the many reasons he is my favorite artist. Personally, I find the average standards of beauty to be very boring. I love any artist or designer who goes beyond these contrived norms and makes the viewer feel something new, even if it is initial discomfort. To me, that is intriguing. As a leader of expressionism, his imagery is deeply psychological. There is much more that meets the eye.
