Artists that count for me 

Fabienne Verdier, a French painter who studied ancient Chinese painting skills and calligraphy

Vassily Kandinsky, the spiritual elements in painting, colours and harmony

Francis Bacon, probably the one who made arise in my mind that urge for creativity. His paintings have a profound emotional impact on me.

Vermeer, so far away from photo realism and so close to the human soul.

Craig Hanna, beautiful portraits
Pierre Soulages , for those who believe that black is not a colour
Giorgio Morandi , still lives that simply knock me off my seat
Franz Marc, these colours were put down on canvas in 1913 !!
