I hate these people

If you need to paint over something, start with colour by numbers.

Don’t take someone else’s art and go instant karma Marxist on it.

No “artist” would actually do that. Artists respect other works. R-type trash.

There’s a metaphor about our modern world in here somewhere.

They “hate” Western civilization but they wanna live here and enjoy the perks.

They won’t do their own thing. Far, far away….

In a similar vein?

The people who chop up antique books need to be burned at the stake, it’s the only way to be sure.

Like no, butchering knowledge in its pure form is not a sculpture, Sandra.

Cultured people hate you now. They want respect but disrespect history and heritage.

Cultures take time to develop and personally, to appreciate. The people who say “everyone is creative” are 10/10 cunts who shouldn’t have been encouraged as children. Trashing good things is expression sure but not art.

Same as those people selling off an antique book page by page.

It feels like the bad restoration people but intentional destruction of the superior culture.

They should be shamed. Brats who grew up with anti-social behaviour praised by bad parents/teachers.

You know those were wall doodlers.

If I flipped you the bird right now, it would certainly be a powerful emotive expression… but it wouldn’t be art.

Monet, Van Gogh fail to sell

Greater fool fails.

One of the collections most coveted works, Monet’s “Saule pleureur et bassin de nymphéas,” failed to sell after it was estimated that it would fetch about 40 million pounds. Additionally, Van Gogh’s “Portrait de femme: buste, profil gauche,” from the artist’s trip to Antwerp in 1885, estimated to sell for 8 million to 12 million pounds, also failed to sell.

Something’s up with the funny money.

China paints duplicates, that’s why there are no great artists anymore.

Theft and fraud.

Vice promotes vice

Erm, it’s been there for a while. They always start with the girls/women.

I edited these following pics so you don’t end up on a watch list.

When I criticized these types of “art” to men as normalizing pedophilia, they called me an SJW.

Because it involves tits? Anyone who thinks I’m an SJW can’t read.

Check that dead-eyed stare. Sexy, right, totally non-pedo guys?

That one I left til last, looks more corpse than living.

With every modern advantage

I know this has been pointed out by others, but given every modern advantage, our “artists”, celebrated in the media, are still producing inferior works compared to the average in ancient times.

Behold, amygdala atrophy.

I’m as good with actual art as I am with faces. Without going through everything because that would be harsh, a reproduction does invite comparisons. Gem quality on right superior, shape even and smoother (just worn at top), border is perfect with some gaps, modern border wobbles and varies, While both leg pairs seem muscled, the right is in keeping with the figure and the left on the man would tauten as lifted, a knowledge of anatomy. On the modern, the legs are fat because the left is as big and the upper torso shrunken, the right arm (his right) is shriveled compared to the antique and the left attempts to compensate with fat, almost out of socket from body compared to the antique, where the arm is held close to the body, in joint, in pose to stabilize weight. Left figure seems to have visible spine whereas on the right he has defined muscles including possibly abdominals. The flat hair on the right is fashion but correct for side of head, the left misinterprets this design and there’s no hair almost, the head seems almost to cave in at the back and touch the border. Facial details show the difference the most though. The antique smiles.

With modern microscopes, electronic tools and an example to imitate, this wouldn’t pass muster back then.

Sign of the times

K-times artwork vs. r.

Never trust a teacher.

Despite this being her job, and she volunteered, it’s ruined beyond repair.

Children exist who could’ve done better. And how could a woman get the makeup wrong?

“the art restorer Carmen Usua suggested that it might be impossible to bring the statue back to its original state, due to incorrect sanding, questionable coloring, and dodgy work on the plaster. The culprit now faces a fine from the Spanish association of art conservators and restorers, who plan to bring the issue to the Prosecutor’s Office of Navarra.”

Big fine, it’s cultural heritage.
