Now that is art. Not the pathetic colors splashed onto a canvas randomly that we call 'modern' art.

Whoa isn't this the internet? Aren't we supposed to hate on artist and art students? Where are the comments about art students are ******* fags and waste their money on trying to achieve art?

No, that is modern art where you have an empty can on a piece of string and sell it for millions. Actual artistic skill we applaud.

You're all faggots. A lot of modern art looks like it does because it simply looks good. Paintings back then took several years to make and Renaissance painters couldn't paint a woman if you held a sword to their balls.

it's a painting, with a lot of detail...
like a picture with high resolution
(first one to do this was Van Eyck, check his work out it's incredible!, for some parts of the paintings he uses a brush with only one horsehari...)

Funny how art today is more or less defined (in most cases) as a way of expression, but those paintings from the old times that you say are amazing? Are made for money, back when art wasn't look down upon. Today, art graduates can't even find a job, yet back then, artists were rich as **** .
User avatar #30 to #29 - symustafa (11/21/2012) [-]
Talented? There are various talented artists today that are talented. Plus, art isn't about just drawing or painting pictures. There's a reason why artists like Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock were successful. Because they did something no one as dared do or even think about doing before. Plus, consider why they do it. The things they do were considered shocking at that time. Just like how Damien Hirst's dead shark in a tank is still shocking today.

This is exactly why people look down upon today's art and artists. It's like artists are slowly being wiped out, as creativity is drained from people. "Don't do art because you'll never be an artist. Don't do music because you'll never become a musician." What an industrial society we still live in, it's like we're still living in the industrial revolution. The arts is deemed unnecessary and inferior to languages, sciences and mathematics. Because we are shaping people to work in boring offices.

And you say today there is no talent. Rather, the talent is overshadowed by everything else because of the need to make money and retire with a happy life. Well, if that is the case, the future is going to be filled with really boring, old millionaires who did what they did, not because they like it, rather because it's the fastest way to earning money. Where's the happiness in that?

Sorry for the long rant. Just tired of today's society where people look down upon arts.
