On one level this is quite interesting, though- what does it take to make a work of art one's own? He has signed it 'Vladimir', so does that give him some sort of weird proprietorial right over it?
Silly questions, probably, but worth having a think about nonetheless.
This is his 'manifesto'
personally, I'd have him banged up for 20 years for that. Yeah, that's right, 20 FUCKING YEARS
just shameless self promotion, really.
if you believe in art, how can you not believe in people making art?
I call bullshit.
:( :( :(
In the meantime, we'll have to make do with 'Naomi Campbell and her violent nipple' and 'Mr Hitler`s Empathy for Mr Stalin and Vice Versa'.
is this the painting i hated? i hope so
they're all just pretending
but defacing famous works of art is completely fine, more people should do it.
what do you think of ai weiwei?
A BARK WI' MI NOW!
No, you're thinking of Lil' Bow Wow.
I think whoever did that needs a brick in the face.
Didn't even overlap it at all, impressive imo
of Otis Ferry
(as numerous other artists have reworked existing pieces)
* he already had an art... sorry 'yellowism' exhibition with a piece by Damien Hurst in it
* yellowism is nowhere near as good, clever, interesting or yellow as my friend Fil's ongoing creative obsession with yellow
* Yellowism site is just pretty boring manifestos with boring tumblr fashion/porn semi-irony thrown in
But since it will no doubt annoy all you lot and this thread will be 100000x LOL ART STUDENTS and BUT WHAT IS ART REALLLLY *ignores 100 years of writing and debate on this subject* then GO YELLOWISM.
This coincided with my first ever visit to the Tate. My friend took us on two trains and a fair bit of a walk to get there, and we arrived to the sound of alarms and a flood of people leaving.
GOOD STORY, WORTHWHILE BUMP.
They're just status symbols/non-monetary assets for the rich, innit.
this is nonsense. can't be assed to expain why, rothko is a fantastic artist
You don't agree that any piece of art is ever overvalued?
You don't agree that Rothko specifically is overvalued?
"They're just status symbols/non-monetary assets for the rich, innit.''
I believe that they have value outside of their monetary value, to me it's totally irrelevant how much they sell for.
always get told i'm an idiot because of it.
i don't see anything in it that people could hate, indiffernce yeah, but there's not really anything to actively dislike in his work is there?
i hate the colours he chooses and the way he puts them together as well. i just hate looking at them it's like looking at fog
maybe you are an idiot...
sounds a bit pointless from the description; an extended blog post
just posted it as an example of the notion that Rothko is one of the modern artists that the general public DO like...
trawl online news sites comment threads for as many examples of LOL IF I DREW A MOSTACHE ON THE MONA LISA WOULD IT BE 'ART" TOO?! as possible and i dunno stick them in a gallery somehow.
FIX UP LOOK SHARP!
