I greatly admire Wassily Kandinsky, but I think it would have been a unique experience to meet Salvador Dalí and have a surreal talk about films and food.

“Many Layered Doodle” by Wotto

I’d love to meet Tim Burton, I’d like to thank him for being so influential and also pick his brain about many of his character designs. I bet he’d doodle in my sketchbook and make up wild stories about the doodles. I’d also love to meet Picasso. I imagine painting with him or just watching him paint would be wildly entertaining. I like the energy of his latter work and I imagine the man had a bunch of energy too.

“After Cosmic War” by Robson Borges

I’d like to meet a lot of artists from the present, but I really love Salvador Dalí. He always stands out as one of the very few twentieth century painters who combines a distinctive style with intriguing themes. I love futuristic things and surrealism, so I’m always looking at his work for crazy and modern imagination.

“Saving Hope” by Monsieur Alfred

I hate Dalí’s paintings. So it would be amazing to meet Salvador Dalí to discuss his universe, his work, his life…And he looks like the perfect buddy for a crazy party!

That’s such a hard question. It would be really tempting to meet Moebius or Threadless alum McBess. In the end I would have to pick Aubrey Beardsley – he was such a beautiful weirdo.
