    Link: Tiger Woods is Now an Artist - Looks like he`s taking the Jackson Pollock splatter-on-canvas route.

    "Represents what we put in our vehicles"
    So they randomly chunk things and hope it lands together to form a car?

    I must say I applaud Tiger for doing something like this, having a good humour about it, and having fun....but I`ll also say that I never really considered those random splatter peices as `art`

    I want to use a golf club to make splatter art. It looks like fun.

    I agree with MarthFador that it doesn`t really take much artistic ability to randomly throw paint onto a canvas and make it look interesting, but it`s nice that Tiger is doing it for charity. I`ll always back something if it`s done for a good cause.

    Dear Tiger;

    This is not 2000. No one cares anymore.

    No love,

    Your non-fans.

    Also, Tiger`s comment, "You can get away with anything in art now can`tcha," is so true.

    Art was always at the bottom of the metaphorical pooper, alikabul.


    I still hate Tiger Woods.

    "any time money goes to charity, it`s a positive thing."
    Well intentioned Tiger, but by that logic it looks like you ought to be giving up every cent you`ve got.

    American ideal of art.....if someone famous throws paint on a canvas, some non-nice individual in Boise thinks it matters.

    Wow, my friend and I were talking about how art is losing value nowadays in drawing class lol. Tiger`s right - you can get away with anything in art nowadays. But that`s not really art... it`s not even abstract... that woman at the end speaks bs. Even abstract takes planning and carries symbolism within its figures. This is just splattered paint applied in a different way... it doesn`t take planning and attention to detail and all that. He just hits the ball.
    Today`s definition of art is too broad, and we gotta narrow it down a bit.

    Definitely not something I would buy. I even hate abstract art. But there is more than enough rich people wanting to throw away their money on something like this. Might as well make it for charity :P

    Husky is right. Art is loosing value. Today`s society is too caught up in hurting people`s feelings. It`s why Harvard gives A`s to keep people from going to another school and why we consider everything "art" just because you drew some lines and put colored hand prints on a piece of paper does not make it art.

    As for the video, hey go for it Tiger.. But i look down on the car company for this. It doesn`t look like good art. The idea was genuine gold, but it didn`t turn out all that great and certainly doesn`t go well with "It shows what we put into our cars." Art + car = nothing. It doesn`t show anything related to your cars expect the fact that you can put them in the same room. Fail. just fail.

    Whatever though, someone`ll buy this for 7.1 million bucks. you watch.

    Jackson Pollock actually had a method behind his work. There`s repetitious patterns, actual subtle words hidden in the paints splatters, things scrawled in different languages, hidden images. He had a technique, method, and purpose behind everything he did.

    And it wasn`t just `splattered on`. He built himself a complex system of pullies, levers, and machines that all made a slightly different effect with the paint, and each had to be worked and timed carefully. His work took skill and planning, it wasn`t just paint thrown on canvas.

    Tiget Woods? Pah. Get a friggen life. Some people might think it`s art, but where`s the meaning in it? There`s no passion and dedication. Art used to be about emotion and translating the world the artist saw into something different and unique. Now it`s just a title. You can take a dump on cardboard and call it art, and the world will think you`re a prodigy. No one cares anymore as long as they get their fifteen minutes of fame, even if they already di
