The Power of Art looks excellent. I'd like to suggest these additional titles - ones that illumine the world of art and all forms of creative genius:

Civilisation: The Complete Series
http://www.amazon.com/Civilisation-Complete-Kenneth-Clark/dp/B000F0UUKA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1252872537&sr=1-1

Man Ray - Prophet of the Avant-Garde
http://www.amazon.com/Man-Ray-Prophet-Avant-Garde-American/dp/1572525657/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1252872645&sr=1-1

Alfred Stieglitz: The Eloquent Eye
http://www.amazon.com/American-Masters-Alfred-Stieglitz-Eloquent/dp/B00005KA7A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1252872793&sr=1-1

The Mystery of Picasso
http://www.amazon.com/Mystery-Picasso-Pablo/dp/B00007ELEI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1252872872&sr=1-1

Each title is rich and worthy of repeated viewings, but supply your own soundtrack to the Picasso as you watch him work and rework his paintings.

This is an old Roommate of mine.
He is a really fine artist and was a great roommate.
He used blow glass down in his room when lived together.
Super Cool guy.
Now he's doing Tattoo's as well.

I've never seen such awesome street art before. It's truly amazing.

The Link does'nt work. It says something about a server error:

I love this work by Damian Michaels. You have to see a better scan to appreciate the detail. The original is like 3" x 4". If you blew it up, you would see serious detail. He must use a tiny rapidograph like Jordan has...

Wesley Willis, the schizophrenic rock and roller from way back has always captured my attention. I think his drawings, which were marker on board and done right on the street from memory are amazing. The detail in his works were amazing. You see them on eBay every now and then, usually fetching around $1,000.00. Back in the day, he'd sit on street corners and sell them for less than $100.00. The same as with a Dee Dee Ramone painting, I'd give anything to own a Wesley piece of art.
