Ok, so you say this isn`t art. Fair enough.
"Copying your friend`s stickmen but placing them in an original geometric composition: art."
Ah wait, so painting the same ideas in different ways is art. You say all his stuff is essentially the same in technique, so it`s not art. Right. Well if you use the same techniques to build different stickmen and that counts as art, why doesn`t painting different spacescapes with the same techniques count?
You must enjoy contradicting yourself. While the picture looks amazing, you don`t like him because he does things the easy way. He uses simplicity to make something amazing. And you say that`s not stylish? Yeah, he should make his audience wait around for hours as paints.
You sir, make an artform out of contradiction.
Well, maybe I could do it with Photoshop and patience. But still.
But the way you stated that a mexican with one arm taught you to do this made that man sound like a retard. yes, many people probably do this, but dont make him sound like he is a loser because everyone else can do this. its just a hobby
Obviously I`ve heard of the man, otherwise I wouldn`t have brought him up.
"...and the presence of some color does not mean one has a sense of color."
I didn`t say that the presence of color means someone has a sense of color. Ever heard of color blindness? What I was implying is that he has enough sense to color objects appropriately. As far as the orange\redness, the color of far off planets is entirely left up to the imagination of the artist. At least he has a common color scheme, no? I`d say that constitutes a sense of color in itself.
"But pick something you really appreciate."
Art doesn`t have to be classy in order to qualify as art. It may be cheap and expedient according to the other standards, but who am I to say it is not art? He painted a picture, is that not enough?
"Making stickmen out of paperclips; definitely art."
"When he sprays black paint across the entire thing I thought "NO! You ruined it!" lol"
Hahahaha, me too.
Skie_Lok: I`n not even an artist, let alone an art major.
I don`t mean to be elitist - there`s a line between elitist and being passionate about something, and apparently I`m over the line. Sorry. But pick something you really appreciate. You like cars? This guy is the old honda civic tricked out with the v-tec sticker, 5 spoilers, and garish flame paint job. All flash, no style or substance. You like movies? This guy is Michael Bay: lots of frenetically moving things on fire or exploding in slow motion, no substance. You like music? Britney. You like food? Emeril.
I just google searched spray paint art. There`s way better stuff than this using the same medium.
Sense of depth? Some objects appear closer to the canvas than others. Color? Space is black as it should be, and the planet`s surface`s color is entirely left up to the artist`s imagination (glad it`s not brown or green, as Earth). Contrast? The brightness of the comet and light of the coronas fade into space. Value? Tell me, how are you making that judgment? And subtlety? One can only be so subtle with 1. fantasy\space and 2. spray paint.
One could attribute this to artistic style, DiePSPolice. I can doodle and draw cartoons, but they all look similar and some of the features are the same. Music artists, it can be argued, also have their own style.
The methods of creating art play a lesser role in comparison to the finished product. Is a pot made only with one`s hands considered more artistic than a pot made with a potter`s wheel? No. If the artist in this video has to use a paper corner to properly paint the curve of a comet, what difference does it make to the finished product? And so what if the same technique is frequently used by other artists? It`s a specific kind of art with its own techniques, just as I`m sure there exist such techniques in anime and fingerpainting.
BUT he`s very talented. And used some very interesting techniques.
that was amazing =S
Making stickmen out of paperclips; definitely art. Copying your friend`s stickmen: not art. Copying your friend`s stickmen but placing them in an original geometric composition: art. Painting an original spacescape: art. Painting essentially the same spacescape over and over again because every landscape is created by peeling off layers of paint with crumpled up paper: not art. It would be possible to make artistic spacescapes using his methods, but this guy is not, because he doesn`t have any sense of depth, color, contrast, value, or subtlety. He is repeating a bunch of steps.
Thomas Kinkade`s crap is very bad art, despite its apparent complexity in production and passable realism, because there is no creativity or originality.
The level of simplicity or complexity used in the production of art does not define art itself, but rather it is how said art is perceived that defines it.
Art or not, the planets looked really cool.But I prefer Caravaggio.
I can vomit on a canvas in far less time than this space painting took to get painted, and while it would not look as good, if I ate the right things I could probably make it more interesting.
you`re just jealous that you will never be as good as he is. and i doubt that a little mexican with one arm made a better painting than this man did. if its true, that mexican has got some problems
But my main problem with this space planetscape guy is that he is almost the epitome of kitsch: "...kitsch is said to be a gesture imitative of the superficial appearances of art. It is often said that kitsch relies on merely repeating convention and formula, lacking the sense of creativity and originality displayed in genuine art."
He has no sense of overall structure in his painting, no sense of contrast (everything is cranked up to 11), no sense of color. His work is indistinguishable from any number of album or book cover art.
I like his style, and he makes it fun, to say the least, and good for him for finding his niche in life, seriously!
Buuut.. (and you all saw this coming, I`m sure!) I have to call his painting cliche. Tacky? Eh, not tacky, just cliche. Multiple moons, funky shapes, vivid colors.. key components to sci-fi, and little more. AND, as others have pointed out, he broke an important rule of art with his signature.. big, too contrasting, draws the eye away from the important part of the painting.
Lastly.. I didn`t see much choreography going on in his art, not to mention it`s obvious he`ll `repeat` designs.
But if he`s making money off of it, enjoys it, entertains `and` survives... hell, have at man. They`re still beautiful!
So fast you had to speed up the video.
Probably try it again after.
that was awesome!!
He is very good, you think he invest in an air gun. Save money in the long run.
The music was funny, "whoop-whoop-whoop whip-whip-whoop-whoop" lol
When he sprays black paint across the entire thing I thought "NO! You ruined it!" lol
But like that vermont guy with his painting show and the paintings he makes - VERY tacky.
