Speed Painting Photo Realism

Speed Painting Photo Realism. Another prime example on how much the rest of us really SUCK at art. Give this one a chance--it`s actually pretty good.

I believe the artist was trying to show that every soul on this earth is amazing. (Gay sharing time is over!)

It is pretty amazing but whats the point? It is a pretty useless talent.

That's amazing.
I do realism sometimes, but its nothing compared to that.
And its not a real attractive person, which I like. Not everyone in art has to be beautiful. :/

@ Akappy

I have no problem with someone doing something they enjoy. That is beside the point.

My issue is with this particular form of photorealism being called art. I don't doubt that a lot of technical skill is required to work Photoshop et al to any degree of competency. But it lacks in flair and soul, it`s cold and sterile.

I didn`t call him useless either, that`s your word not mine. He is however an exhibitionist. Tell me please what else he was doing with this video if you discount show-boating.

I only call this pointless when talking about whether it is art or not. I have always believed that art should have a message and a point otherwise it`s just wallpaper and not art.

I do accept however that what qualifies as art is subjective and thus difficult to define and agree upon. My opinions are not everyone`s and that`s fine with me. Anyone who puts their work out there however should expect to be judged critically, it`s all part of the game.
