The Funniest Artists to Follow on Twitter

1. Richard Prince

Twitter: @RichardPrince4

Prince has based his art career on re-appropriating images, whether that means blowing-up the Marlboro cowboy or compiling images of hot girls from motorcycle magazines. His obsession with visual culture means he gets into some sticky situations over copyrighted images, something he's not afraid to tweet about. Prince even claims that he came up with Twitter in 1990 (bird logo and all), and he didn't sue anyone when his idea was "stolen."

Prince was involved in a copyright infringement lawsuit about an image he used of Bob Marley in one of his works when he tweeted one of his most viral images — a compilation of all 57 of Jerry Seinfeld's girlfriends in one image. When he won the Bob Marley suit, he tweeted a new image of Jerry Seinfeld's girlfriends, and this one had dreads. Richard Prince #FTW.
