Tony Hart is a massive inspiration. He made art what it was with nothing more to it in a world where art was kept precious by the pompous. He made art accessible to anyone and everyone, and by showing the process of how to make a picture, it inspired people to go and do it. He made it look simple and fun, using objects from around the house to create patterns and shapes. The video of the paper triangle was ahead of his time. This DIY approach to design has become more and more popular over the few years.
