So what I'm getting from this thread is that art is BS? Got it.
If I was mentally screwed up and urinated on a canvas, I would be an artist? That's basically what this thread is saying. It's not what you do, it's how you feel at the time and who you are. Oh, and some people are just better then other people. Stupid.
Let's stop pretending people like the one who did the crayola drawing are all that different from raving psychotics that express their feelings by randomly punching people out in the streets. The former just used a different medium.
Pollock was a deranged drunk, so that's not an unfair characterization of his work, imo.
but just because a few art dealers have figured out how to swindle money from rich people doesn't mean that all art is BS, just overrated is all.
