My favorite living artists are Lassen and Vladimir Kush. I love how Lassen draws his dolphins and I always love the lighting on his art. Its fun just to go into one of his galleries and see his work. All his work is straightforward dolphins, whales, and tigers so you don't have to worry about looking at abstract stuff that makes you think. If you're not a huge art fan then I would say going into one of his galleries will not be painful because its just pretty to look at. The employees basically don't pay attention to you unless you look rich, however, I think of that as a plus because it allows you to browse without feeling pressure to purchase anything.
