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 **** .

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.

you only get to realise how incredible (photo)realistic art is if you have ever tried to draw anything else apart from a crooked dick on your schoolmate's book

I'm not a cultural man, nor will I ever claim to be one, but I will say that these kinds of paintings always strike me as baffling compared to what we display today.
Modern Art is just.. ew. What happened to striking paintings such as these? We still enjoy them, why stop making them?

Even in architecture, everything's got to be slick and smooth and as boring as possible.
I assume it's to improve functionality and provide bigger space while retaining an somewhat 'edgy', by lack of a better word, status.

Personally, I'd like to see a barok inspired skyscraper. I do know there's quite a few impressive buildings out there that aplly that sort of style but dammit, they're old.
We don't see enough playing with the old while integrating the new.
You want to impress others with your building? Construct a 18th century inspired office building.

Emanates class like no other.

I get it. The two domes are balls and the obelisk are a dick.
It's genetalia.
Or maybe it's a ********* , and the domes are breasts.
I dunno.
Maybe I'm immature.
