I believe that art involves making things that you are with thing you have. You are a prick and you had a rock to demonstrate it. So, it is art

I'm a proud graphic designer and a lot of my time is spent by searching for references, art is one of these references... sorry if I'm being a killjoke

also, sorry about my english

I actually had some respect for graphic designers, but I suppose you're right.

They too, like all artists, are mentally retarded, pompous, elitists who arbitrarily decide the stupidest things are art because only they are qualified to make the distinction that **** thrown at a canvas is art.

For the definition of art, I look at anything but art.
What movies, plays, or music is art?
Not the ****, that's for sure. Those are only art when they contain a significant emotional impact. (Which absolutely no "art" has these days. It's just a bunch of snooty asshats.)

Maybe, art is one of the most personal things ever. It can really impact my emotions but not yours and vice versa. It's individual and that's why it's so hard to define which work should or shouldn't be considered.

Also is called art: Animations, Digital Paints, game concept art or even soundtracks, posters, covers, all of this things can mean so much for me and nothing for you. The only thing that can define this is our personal repertory, I've lived different situations than you and by this reason some things will touch me more.

That's just my opinion and I'm open to change it if someone convinces me. That's my conclusion about art. Hope you understand and feel free to discuss

Experience changes your own interpretation of the emotional message of art, but it does not change the existence of that message.

These modern art galleries (or contemporary, whatever modern day art is called) are the absolutely most stupid things by people claiming things represent THEIR emotions rather than using the tools they have to present emotion to others.

Art isn't about arbitrarily deciding something stands in for whatever meaning you are going for with a piece (no, a dot on a page does not "symbolize the painter's lone self expression").
Art is about inspiring feelings in others. And if you have to be a snooty "artist," not a normal person, making up ******** meanings for everything to be inspired, the art you are looking at is trash on the same level as Transformers.

Also there is a distinction between art in a "high-art" sense and art in an aesthetic sense (graphic design).
I've never heard anyone being as pompous as an artist because something looked pretty though.

Well, that's a cool vision, I see how you think and I like it. I'll keep my thoughts for now and think about it a little more, everyday. How I already was doing. Thank you anon
