The Evolution of Art

the Evolution of Art
  1. David Brazeal says:
    That is actually quite a statement. Its not exactly true for pictorial art as much as just the global acceptance of complete trash passing as art. From the guy who made a literal shit museum piece to all the American Idol shit dribbling top 10 pop bands that clog the airwaves. Art just isn't the same anymore. The attitude that "you can do whatever you want to do" has sort of killed that ideal where art in its various forms was a studied and practiced craft. Not everyone is an artist at heart. I'm not a musician. I draw. I will never pick up a guitar because I would suck at it. That sort of thing.

    Doesn't matter if you suck at something, you snob. If making shitty art makes you happy, then why should you stop just because it's going to offend someone's artistic sensitivity? The question of people accepting shittier art as time goes by is really blinded by people's preconceptions.

    Pedro Rhymenoceros Chavarria snob? Really? The only thing snobby here is you trouncing on an opinion. I never said not to do anything that makes you happy I said the fact that "anyone" can be an artist has lowered the standards to such a degree to where real artists are far and few and in some cases work twice as hard to self promote and get a big break while others are a celebrated sham. You need to learn the context from which one speaks. Did I strike a nerve or something?

    David Brazeal Not really, I just really hate art snobs. Art is subjective and if the majority of people like what you consider shit, then that's their personal preference. There's just no way that you can definitively say what is bad and what isn't when it comes to art.

    Pedro Rhymenoceros Chavarria Youre a Jersey Shore fan huh. Go watch Snooki be famous just for being fucking stupid and calling herself an entrepreneur. People like you are the reason artists...true artists are starving. Digest your culturally fed stupidity and continue to infer truth from your own myopic view point. Can you even understand half that last statement? Is that the problem. Im speaking a little highbrow for ya? Thats snobbish by the way you witless fuckpipe. Go away.

    David Brazeal George Orwell and his Essay on the English Language. Speak simply so that others may simply understand. As for the the Topic I agree with you. There is some total bull crap being passed as good enough, while talented artists struggle to get by. I think the problem is is that the talented ones are less willing to sell out than the mediocre artists.

  9. David Brazeal says:
    Richard York Seely II agreed. Its that inability to accept the need to sell out and be mainstream filth which separates a starving artist from a rapidly successful one. Its society that continues to justify this and not improve upon itself by readily accepting talentless hacks in all artistic endeavors as being a professional simply because its presented as "pro" by the media.

    David Brazeal Hurr durr, it's actually a popular opinion that Jersey Shore sucks, people watch it anyway, BECAUSE it sucks. Same principle behind gawking at a horrific accident. I like how you're assuming I'm an idiot just because I'm saying art is subjective. YOU go away, angry, starving arts major.

    David Brazeal Also, the term "starving artist" isn't a new one. Artists have always experienced difficulty in obtaining monetary compensation for their talent. With the advent of the personal compooter, anyone can make their artistic vision a reality and disperse it through the intertubes. It's the whole "everyone will have 15 minutes of fame." prediction come to pass. Deal with it.

    2008 is not new but do not view it as regression. Bet you can find similar heroglyphs on stone age rocks. Remember, in the others One Leo Da Vinci, one Vincent Vn Gogh, one Dali. What this is meme represents is a new digital beginning where billions of offerings are submitted every minute and with the speed of technology plus the natural evolution of art, we should be seeing some awesome never before seen stuff real soon. There was a lot of shit made in history but only the best stand the test of time. The masses, in general, don't know art from shit and frankly don't care about it as far as it will get them noticed.
