Some people are looking at the paintings and thinking "Oh, my toddler could do that; therefore it's not REALLY art." Well, I`ve played one of Bach`s minuets. Does that mean it isn`t art anymore?
I don`t think it`s about whether or not you or your three-year-old is capable of drawing/painting something similar as much as it`s about the artist expressing themselves and leaving some kind of impression on the viewer. Appearantly, they`ve done their job there because look--you`re talking about it.
Obviously different people are going to see it different ways and have different opinions about it. Some will like it while others won`t. I, for one, don`t particularly care for most of those paintings, but hey, that`s just MY opinion.

I agree, it doesn't take talent to create on of those but someone please define the word "art." Is it not ones expression of how they feel or how they see things? Leave them alone.
