Man Ray’s art is definitely those who has been influenced with Surrealism, Futurism, Cubism and more. While most may know him through his photography, he mentioned that he would like to be known as a painter. Ray is one of those who express his love for art deeply which makes his art prone to have deep meanings behind it. Man Ray was known to have played around with media art making it unique and a bit abstract. Like the photo shown below, we all can see how he incorporated an abstract style with reality.
And now, it’s time for opinions! Hmm… DO I LIKE MAN RAY’S ART? Of course! It’s funky and when I look at his art, there are millions of words that pop up in my mind! I am one to love portraits but this type of portraits? … To me it’s SO unique and different that just leaves me in awe of his creation. I do photography as a hobby and so I think another reason why I like Man Ray’s art is because most of his well known art is portraitures and to know that we share the same interest makes me appreciate his art more!

Jeff Baij is one of those people who has a lot of confidence doing art through the computer. Making media art boldly is his game and he sure doesn’t give a poop if you criticize it harshly. Baij’s art seems to have no deep meaning and as I poked around the internet, Baij did mentioned that he is most proud of doing so. He’s also like us where he enjoys posting his creation online for the world to see.
To tell you the truth, I am not fond of his work. I guess you can say I am one of these people who greatly appreciate the meaning of art and if there is no meaning behind the art, then how can I relate to it? How can I appreciate it? I just feel as if he took the true value of art away compared to those who spend a lifetime mastering a master piece, devoting their time and soul into their art, making it priceless!
