Ive been examining Cy Twombly’s work for a project I’m doing at my work. I hadn’t heard of him before and after spending a bit of time getting to know his work – I must say I’m a fan. I think Elusive Muse put it best when describing his style

“Although at first glance the graffiti-like scribbles and scratches of Cy Twombly‘s work might resemble art made by a naughty child of Jackson Pollock, it is nothing of the kind: it is the work of an erudite, sophisticated, and emotional painter.”

“Graffiti is linear and it’s done with a pencil, and it’s like writing on walls. But in my paintings it’s more lyrical.”

― Cy Twombly
