Am I a sucker or brainwashed if I like a minimalist like Elsworth Kelly?

Do you think this art is ugly, even though it took a lot of skill?





Is this is even art? I like these better though.

Some do it right. Os Gemeos is pretty nice. 




It's all art. From things like these to galleries that look like it took no skill to paint. But it's ultimately in the eye of the viewer to determine if something is "art" or not.

art subjective . go to art school or take an art class and you'll find out it takes skill to do massive shit like that. but color and stuff in the 3rd pic is just hype imo

all it takes is some millionaire/billionaire  saying that something is unique abstract and different for a shitty artist to get recognition and get paid thousands for shitty art work

I cant stand art that looks straight out of a highschool/community college art student like OP's top 2 pictures. It screams immaturity to me.


installation art is where it's at for me

Tar Paper by Tara Donovan


I fucking hate when people argue that its skill that makes good art. It's the idea behind the piece.

If you hate people who made millions splatting paint on a canvas, why didn't you do it first?

Art is about expression and being an outlet. People go about expressing themselves in different ways. There's a reason why there is surrealism, cubism, minimalism, street art, etc in physical art and haikus, sonnets, acrostic, etc in poetry. One isn't necessarily better because it takes more "skill" or more time. What matters is that there was a message left behind in the piece by the artist that their audience will see. Or that the audience will come up with their own individual messages that comfort them because, again, everyone thinks and expresses themselves differently.

Yo this stuff is pretty cool. How does someone actually do large pieces like these though? Do they get permission from the city or something?

But I also agree that in regards to art pieces that seem simple, there's probably an idea behind that paints a bigger picture.

The first one is done by permission in Boston through public art funding. The second building looks abandoned though and might be illegal. Os Gemeos is legit. They're some of the few graff guys I dig, although I'm not really sure how to put it in words why their work appeals to me.

Anyone with 2 peanuts for a brain should be able to recognize that art is subjective and all have is opinions to throw at each other. 

Personally when I look at the pictures you posted, I think first 2 = street art, second 2 = pretentious minimalist nonsense.

Os gemeos kills it though



Can safely say he didn't get permission for that shit!

lol anyone who does artwork should be commended not shit talked
its a different thing to critique something but to just say "waht skill?"  

i guarantee you fucking dont even try to draw/paint because youre self conscious and afraid to fail and get made fun of so you just talk shit about other artists and what they do
