    i think the 'green fairy' probably changed his mindset most, that stuff was lethal back then apparently, not like the Absythne they sell nowadays.


    The Monet link was to a Banksy rework...

    Dali all the way. And his other "endeavors" outside painting are nice too. A few huge sculptures

    And Un Chien Andalou... what a sick piece.
