I really don't mind if it was done by a toddler; I generally like this kind of art. I'm not saying I would ever -buy- abstract art though.

Some abstract is good. But the kind with like a red circle in the middle of a canvas is crap. Once again proving crap can be "art"

I think that the parents are a little stupid to have given the kid paints.....I bet more of it went in his mouth than on the canvas. Maybe when he's a little older, of course, but the statement "he could hold a paintbrush when he was eight months old" annoyed me.

""The striking use of oriental calligraphy has the kanji-like characters stampeding from the page, showing the new ascent of the East. It is one of Linsky's most experimental works."

Proof that these drating people are so full of poo. Thank god someone is finally pointing out the obvious: "IT LOOKS LIKE A CHILD PAINTED THIS. AND, WAIT, THIS TIME IT WAS!"

Abstract art is so pointless. I will never be able to understand why people pay money for that poo. It's a doodle.

BRB I'm going to "paint" (I'm using the term LOOSELY) some sh-t and then I'm going to try to sell it (fooling people) saying that it was done by a modern artist

what happened to real art?few hundred years ago you had to be good to be famous,these days any idiot can become a artist by slashing around with a brush on paper,whoever gets the idea to call that...garbage art should be impaled

I totally agree with you

ive been saying for years that all the abstract modern art that some poeple claim to understand the meaning of is all bs. only the person who painted/sculpted something abstract knows its meaning if it has one. all the pretentious people who act like they see something in paint randomly thrown on canvas are pretending so they can look cool and intelligent. if someone with real painting skill really had a message or idea to get across in paint form they would make it something that clearly communicated it or make you think of the main thought, idea, opinion or whatever was.

Abstract, to me, would be more along the lines of Picasso. This would be along the lines of 'modern'....Or 'the art for the rich, snobby people who can't criticize actual art'.
I admit the Elephant one was rather interesting, as much as an ink blot is interesting in the way that makes you tilt your head and say 'Nope, still looks like a butterfly to me!'. I'd probably hang it somewhere and enjoy it if it were a present, but not go out of my way to buy...
It is silly for people to be so high-priced over paintings like these...Stupid on the critics' parts, smart on that mother's part. Making money off of other's stupidity! Genius!

this proves the art-fanatics are full of ****. They're so full of it that they dont know what real art is that even stupid ass finger paintings from 2 year olds can be worth millions to a dumbass with a fat paycheck. the kids paintings are ****ing scribbles and people are like "omg thats beautiful! I will pay hundreds!".

That's it. I'm going to lowes and buying some paint. Maybe I can make some money off scribbles.

Gigaman has the right idea.

it's ABSTRACT! The painting is whatever you WANT it to be!

That's how photographers get away with calling their work art and not science! Anyone can point and click... but an artist will shoot something that can relate to anyone!

It doesn't matter if the work was done by a two year old or a sixty year old. If you like it, if it speaks to you, if you can find meaning (intended or incidental) it is ART.

True art is not made for the artist... art is made for the appreciator.

I'll bet someone would buy it. I'm not into modern art. I draw the line at Picasso.

Love that most people are saying ABSTRACT art is a load of BS. It's not ABSTRACT, it's MODERN. Abstract, to me, is the stuff Salvador Dali's paintings are. Modern is that messy blob on the canvas. Regardless, I think it looks kinda cool ^_^
