If a mast majority of people can look at something and think, "Yeah, I could do that" then it isn't art.

if you could have done it why didn't you do it?

art doesn't have to be technically good to be good.

Why would I want to do shitty sharpie art?

If she was just showing it I wouldn't have a problem. It's the fact she is selling the shit, and people actually buying it, that makes me upset. To me it's like taking snap shots with a Polaroid camera and then selling them.

what makes it shitty? the fact that it is not technical?

(above post is an insult aimed at most museums of modern art)

maybe it would make more sense to you if you understood the philosophy behind the art.

The fact that is looks like something that came out of a 7th Grade art class. Again if she doesn't try to sell them I don't say a word.

It's the timeless battle of the party peddling the shit versus the party peddling the material to dispose of the shit.

I'm going to take a stoic nude photo of frankles and sell it. Should look good on a 20x30 canvas.

I'll start at $5 for that. Would look smashing in my garage above the toolbox.

Haha, the classic battle of what qualifies for art and what people are doing with it. Vd, if someone likes it, no matter how good it is in anyone else's eyes. It qualifies as art. Wven if no one likes it, just rhe artist. Your opinion doesn't matter. Especially when it comes to someone purchasing it.

My question is as you said, if they didn't sell them would they still qualify for art? ;)
