It`s interesting, but for me it`s not really that amazing.

Admittedly unique, that`s all.

My favorite was the roatating disk one, he was willing to listen to alot of strangers and put all of their problems into his art

That`s simply perfect. I think it`s great that he wants people to see his work to get his message across, rather than to just see his work. Fascinating!

oh, and btw, lostinkorea, you`re an idiot. A real dumbass. I`m consistently amazed at how narrow minded and stupid you are.

Excellent. I was prepared to hate it, and loathe the artist, simply because it was called Strokes of Genius, and I was getting ready for a pompous bastard. But, I learned more than one thing watching this.

Man that guy is awesome. I`m so jealous of artistic people. I wish I had the ability to envision something and have it come out cool like that. My art looks like crap.

Really fascinating pieces that make you think, and occasionally take you outside of your comfort zone. Genius!

And lostinkorea, if you went to his website and read the detail about each of his pieces, you would have read that he didn`t shred any actual bibles, he photocopied pages out of it and used the photocopies.

I just wonder what is worse... the possible shredding of the pages of a religious book, or the senseless acts of violence, war, murder, and genocide that have been committed in the name of said religion. (Whatever religion that may be...)

Meaning to his art how? Shredding the bible to make a KKK mural?

I think...there`s a special kind of hell for that!

Normally I disagree with people on what they think is art.

I think THIS is art.

Simple emssages protrayed in a very powerful and creative way.
The murder vitim peice really made me think.

It`s good,
but nothing new,

and there are plenty of other artists who do much more work,
on a larger scale,
all the time.
