Sup /lit/. I'm informed but unknowledgeable about modern art and want to get right into a few artists and discover what they're about. I'm particularly interested in people from the last 10 or 20 years with very distinct, iconic constructed personas, like Warhol, Beuys or Duchamp. The trouble is I know fuck all about contemporary art and was hoping you people may be able to give pointers tl;dr: suggest artists from the last two decades

>>3002797 >iconic constructed personas >like Warhol, Beuys or Duchamp. So you want to know about the art business and not actual art.

At first I thought you were trying to troll the art history majors but then it clicked.. Shoo. This isn't a homework board

>tl;dr: suggest unscrupulous and egotistical conmen and conwomen from the last two decades. fixed so it applies to the contemporary art world.

>>3002899 Duchamp died fifty years ago bro. On top of that he pretty much stopped making art after the 20's.
