What I really think about art

I was having a conversation with a bunch of friends at the local coffee shop, & we to a little argument about some pieces of art on a local exhibition funded by a big company, I’ve said that some of them aren’t very good.

After that conversation I’ve realized how artists can be so taken a back when people comment about their art, the artist seems to be free to create whatever they want but get offended when people commenting their art. They seem to forget that each individual have this thing called personal taste, each of us are allowed to be bias (when it comes with our taste). So yes, we do have the right to think one thing looks great and the other can go to the bin.

Bellow is my summed up conclusion :

Art might be a hard subject to go trough a comparison process, I heard people often said: “there’s no such thing as bad art”. But I beg to differ, I think bad art do exist (after you consider the art’s cultural & social context, the message it tries to convey, so on and so on).

For me art is a is not just a medium for self expression, can also be a medium to convey a bigger message to the mass. The artist is not suposed to just have a monolog, but to create a dialogue…

Good art are made by people that who are not lazy & have done their research, they don’t have to excel in their techniques because that can be learned along the way.

But nowadays people are just lazy, don’t read books, don’t even bothered to give a thought about what they’re making and then call ‘em art.

Therefore my conclusion is: dedicated & thoughtful people creates good art, lazy people that don’t think creates bad art.

Sometimes I imagined how alien royalties would look like, so I’m starting a series of alien princesses. Personal Project.

Happiness is not a situation, it’s a state of mind…
