Thomas Kinkade

Thomas Kinkade isn’t actually one of my favorite artists ever, but I feel like he would be relevant to review because he paints so many wintery, Christmas-themed stuff! And its so close to the 25th. I’m sure most homes have all their decor up.

So apparently, he’s a contemporary artist of our time but he paints very “romantic” themed images. Actually, he just recently passed away in April of this year, he died a natural death. Well, that’s a doozy! Because he’s going to miss the end of the world on the 21st this month. D:

For the Romantics, Berlin says, “in the realm of ethics, politics, aesthetics it was the authenticity and sincerity of the pursuit of inner goals that mattered; this applied equally to individuals and groups — states, nations, movements. – Wikipedia

One reason that he might be one of the most successful American painting artists is because his works has a very appealing theme that most people like and can understand. My dad has one of his paintings, and as a child, I remember the setting itself seemed so magical. I really wished that I could actually live inside the painting.

It is unfortunate though, that his reputation as a person in general precedes him. He’s reputed to have strange outbursts when drunk… (HAHAHA… much in common with Kinkade?!) I think most artists are weird themselves, its just that when anyone gets aggro and easily provoked that this gives a bad impression. :\ Best not to start fights.
