Honestly i believe the best poet has to, arguably, be Edgar Allan Poe. Though his life was a mess, his poetry is amazing and reflects what he was going through in his life.
as for artists i've never been much into art itself, but i would have to say my favorite artist would be Salvador Dali, just because his art is cool and he is a crazy man haha!

Though his life was a mess

*Winks at Charles Bukowski*
I think Baudelaire is a formidable symbolist, but I guess his work wouldn't have as much impact and implicit power when traduced in English.

As for the art, I'm not into it even though I actively practice it, but I think Vermeer is a decent artist. I work more in the field of pencils too Convallaria. If you visit my profile you'll have a link to my art thread if you feel like taking a peek.

For now I can't really say anything about your work since, well...

Personally I enjoy T.S Eliot. He is a poet I can find my own heart in, and I believe he speaks to human nature directly. He is dark, but he hides it well. Definately the poet I strive to try and reflect. As for artists? I like Da Vinci for all his clever little tricks and hidden imagery.

It's been a while since I had a laugh that good, thanks a lot Zoark.

Charles Bukowski, wasted: ''Hey, let's see if I can break your mug of beer with my colt!''

I enjoy Robert Frost's poetry. Some of it can get a bit long, but it turns out interesting, and alot of it compels me to think.

Hmm...for poetry, I like Edgar Allan Poe and Robert W. Service.
As for art? I'm not much one for art, but I must say, Chuck Close. His paintings are awesome, and look very realistic.

One of my favorite artist for his incredible work with mechanical pencils and perspective is M.C.Escher.

Yet again, a good laugh...That guy...As Isaac Brock said; a pretty good read but God! Who would want to be such an asshole?

I was just reading 'Ham On Rye' when that song came on. Quite eerie actually.

I like Edgar Allan Poe as a poet, but I think his prose is better. After I read the Inferno, I'd have to say that Dante (just for this one work) is an awesome poet. His terza rima structure was maintained throughout the entire story. Fascinating story, awesome structure. As for artists, I have no favorite.
