We recentmy got an assignment for English that we have to give a short presentation about someone we admire. I have no idea who I should pick. I didn't want to bore my class with information about some sport-person and what trophees they won, so I thougt I'd give a presentation about some kind of artist because it's way more interesting to me

So my question is? Do you know any good artists? Why should I pick them? What else have they achieved and can I say about them?
Thank you so much!
