    In the past an artist was a person who can create something appealing to the eye, something beautiful that no one else can reproduce with countless hours of investment in every piece. Now an artist is called to the one who does an interesting stain on the canvas? A 10 minute artwork? I can do that too you know? An artist needs to stand out by the fact that he can do something beautiful that none else can!

    This is poo. I like when artists actually paint something amazing like a city or something nice. BUT NOT A RED SQUARE. I don't agree that a 'red square ' is art. :/ And btw art was always about beauty.....

    They blatantly just throw some paint on a canvas and sell it to a bunch of rich mugs. Modern art is all about the name, not the ability. Once you are in "the club" you can make any old shit.

    Stop lumping these paint clowns in with regular artists. Tons of good artists wouldn't charge more than a few hundred maybe a few thousand for an original. Anything in the millions category is absurd.
