  1. imagine having so little to live for in life that stating that "Michelle Obama was known for her smile, the portrait should have had her smiling" is THE MOST IMPORTANT SOCIAL PROBLEM EVER

    if it's by a """""black person"""""
    we literally have an era of spoiled cunts tilting at windmills

  6. So I see a huge build up about this. This is going to be the biggest "art" piece that this artist will ever do, he want it to be unique, awesome, and a masterpiece, he was going to put his heart and soul into this. And after seeing it, this is all I can think of:

  8. Nobody believed that in the whole history of the human race until the Twentieth Century, and it's a concept long overdue for the garbage heap of ideas.

  10. Art should be beautiful. Shocking art is for artists who lack the skill to execute works of beauty.

  11. Walter Pater did. So did Oscar Wilde.

    Maybe you should learn some history.

  14. The late Nineteenth, then. Way to pedant.

    Point is, artists who pissed people off starved to death. Art was damn well supposed to be useful. Or beautiful. Or instructive. Or uplifting. Or sexy. Or even just an accurate visual recording of a thing that happened, because it was the only way to record a thing that happened.

    Photography came along and visual art had a complete nervous breakdown.

  16. This bullshit encapsulates Barack Obama's seething contempt for this country and its history in one image. I genuinely believe he fucking hates us. He knew this had to be recorded, in museums, in history books, in public offices -- enshrined for the rest of our country's lifespan -- and took that final opportunity to produce the most gaudy, awful fucking thing possible.

  20. I think that part of the problem, at least in the past 70 years, is the rise of fine art as a means of money laundering and intelligence agencies (most notably the CIA) acting as patrons to certain artists as a fuck-you to the USSR during the Cold War. All that, plus the sweatshop approach of today's most famous artists, means that quality or technical skill in traditional media isn't nearly as important as it once was.

    The highest echelons of fine art are so incestuous and stupid that it's basically rich people who hate that they can't do art buying from other rich people who begrudgingly pay art students to do art for them.
