Sorry if this question has already been asked, I just thought it would be really interesting to find out what kind of art and artists people like and why. =]
I also wondered if you find that those artists influence your own artwork?

Myself: My favourite artists are Yuumei (Wenquing Yan) and the London street artist Copyright.
I just love artists that put a story or a message in their artwork, I don't really tend to like individual pictures or art pieces, I like it when you look at it and it tells you a story. I really want to try and bring some of that into my own art pieces (Still got a hell of a lot of work to do to be anywhere near as good as them though haha!)
So how about you guys? =]
