8. Charles Thomson (new entry) - He did what everyone left bitter after a relationship ends dreams of doing. He dedicated a whole exhibition to his beautiful and talented ex girlfriend, fellow artist Stella Vine. The only snag was he painted her completely naked.

Art-chart by Stuart Semple (scroll down).

"Charles Thomson has criticised Saatchi's new show, USA Today, branding it 'a jumble sale of miscellaneous tat' and has challenged the public to see both shows and judge for themselves."
