Imaginary art: peaceful place

Imaginary art with a ballpoint pen. The same pen is below the art. It is a black Nataraj 1.0mm pen. So as usual, with most of my imaginary art, I go directly with the pen, and no need to plan with a pencil. I start somewhere and continue it. This scene here has a sense of realism despite being imaginative.

The word "art" denotes "know-how" in a field. And know-how is attained via practice. The so-called modern "art" where a blank canvas is being venerated as super art, is in fact not art at all. Things that anyone can do because it does not demand the know-how is not art.

Photography can never destroy naturalistic/traditional art. Nor is it a rival. But the nest of untalented people who are lazy to practice seriously, it is they who pretend so. Since, to whom shall we be attracted if for example at the seaside, we see an artist doing plain air naturalistic art, and, one taking photos with his camera? Of course, with the artist.

I do not condemn art of personal expression for eg an abstract art showing a feeling of pain due to life problems even though it does not have a high level of skill. But I condemn personal expression without any standard, for eg a blank canvas, a toilet vase being exposed in a gallery and being venerated as super art, or, for eg what is known as artist's shit where it is said to be 90 cans filled with human feces.

These are insane people who want honor without effort but by stupidity. They are as if in a 100 meters race and they are walking instead of running, and yet, want a gold medal! The world is not blind. The madness of super-rich people about the so-called modern art together with its money laundering and tax evasion in auction sales, will not affect real art.

You can sell a white canvas for millions of dollars, and by declaring it as a meaningful piece of art, by forging explanation with complex vocabularies, yet, it will still be meaningless. Urine remains urine even if you spray perfume in it. And as I said earlier, it's obviously a matter of money laundering and tax evasion.

very nice scenery :) ...and, yes, your thoughts on a so-called "art" is, unfortunately, true, but that world does not affect ours, so who cares...?! :)
