10/11

No. 9 fooled me.

Watercolour with a wax resist. Hm. Who'd have thought?

I suspect the hidden hand of mummy.

Or maybe I'm just a sore loser.

Art students can't tell a monkey's painting from art.

Now see how well you fare at distinguishing between toddler doodlings and gallery-level modern art... :smile:

There had been many such experiments. And despite all the evidence art lovers keep worshiping modern art. Why? Here may be the answer: A Comparative Religion inquiry into Modern Art

Wow. That didn't take long.

Well, it did. It took this asshole that long to come up with another pseudonym.

Look up the posting history of Dickens, and you'll see the similarities. Who was 'Dickens'? Nobody fucking knows. Or cares.

Varangian wrote:8/11 A bit dodgy quiz, though, as the modern art was details of larger works and not the entire paining.

While I can appreciate some modern art, I'm too much of a traditionalist to appreciate the often pseudo-intellectual exercises by people who couldn't paint a flower if their lives depended on it. To quote Banksy: "All artists are prepared to suffer for their work, but why are so few prepared to learn to draw?" It is the same with "art music"; it is intended for a small clique who can feel exclusive and that they "get it", in contrast to the great unwashed masses who like music one can enjoy.


I think Banksy's work is unimaginative crud.
