This is from Mythbusters. So, yeah, basically.

He replicated a famous piece. That doesn't make him an artist. That like saying the monks who copied out the bible are artists. No, this guy is just a ******* awesome engineer.

also saying someone isn't doing art because they're just replicating something else is like saying that every painting drawing or whatever that's not taken from imagination isn't art because they're just copying real life, it takes a lot of the same skills to draw a person as it does to draw a picture of a person, I mean it's a little easier on account of the fact that pictures stand perfectly still but so do people posing for paintings so whatever.

I'm not denying his skill as a painter, or whatever the hell you call this, but the fact remains that he didn't have any part in the creation of the original master piece. Being able to create a drawing from someone else's work is a far cry from being an artist but it does make you an awesome painter, musician, sculptor or whatever, if you're good at it.

i would love to see your rendition of the mona lisa

You mean you'd like me to put a pixelated version of the Mona LIsa (no doubt copied off a digital image) into a CAD program and then put it through that awesome machine? Well I ain't an engineering major so I can't. Seriously, your argument is about as retarded as it gets. I never said it wasn't impressive, I just said it wasn't art.

It's not like he copied it exactly. It bears a resemblance to the Mona Lisa, but it obviously looks different.
It's like a decent cover of a song. The foundation is the same, but it's able to stand on its own right.
