    This represents the contemporary attitude towards art that many people actually have. “If I call myself an artist, I’m an artist.”

    That is exactly the problem. By definition, art is something most people can’t do, so if anyone can do it, it’s not art by definition. The image above is certainly something anyone can do, so it cannot be art by definition, whether you want it to be art or not.

    Just like taking naked pictures in black and white.

    It ain’t art.

    The definition of “art” is not that simple. You could broadly define it as the arrangement, or construction, of something in such a way as to affect the senses in a specific or unique way, OR to have a skill in one thing or another. That definition unfortunately leaves itself open to many interpretations. Beauty is generally considered the realm of the eye of the beholder, and this sorta means you don’t necessarily have to have any skill in order to produce “art”. IE it is not something that “most people can’t do”. Art, in the context in which I… Read more »

    Anyone can APPRECIATE art, but it takes an artist to CREATE art. Look at music – ANYONE can appreciate a fine tune, but most folks would be lucky to sound like a cat being ground into sausage trying to play/sing that same tune themselves.

    Art requires an artist, and most people never apply themselves enough to be proficient, much less professional, much less artistic.

    This is generally true in theory, however in practice, I find that what constitutes “art” lies as much in the audience it is intended for, and how they interpret it, as the artist itself. Lets take, for example, rap music. If you were to ask, say the classical music crowd, whether Rap music is “art”, you are likely to get many different answers, depending on who you ask. And even within the Rap music crowd, you will have many differing opinions. Even supposedly “unskilled” rap musicians will have followers who deem their work “art”. So the question then becomes, is… Read more »

    So in the end, anything can be called art, even if it isn’t.

    Well, to paraphrase another saying, “One mans garbage is another mans art.” A lot of the things that many contemporary artists call “art” doesn’t seem all that artistic to me. I recently watched a youtube vid about a guy who collects New York city trash, organizes and repackages it, and sells it to people in other states and abroad, for a rather sizeable markup. Apparently there is an “art” to doing this, and he is quite “skilled” in this “Art”. But based on the amount of money he’s made doing this, people apparently do consider this art. Me, not so… Read more »

    This? I don’t know. Personally, I think not. But this discussion reminds me of the business card scene from American Psycho:

    Was it just me, or was Paul Allens business card just absolutely mind blowing? Now THAT was art.
