there is something wrong with artists

Recommended Posts

first off, this is my opinion and a generalization.

 

every person, (guy and girl) who is an artist is in some way(s) weird. everyone ive met who is good at art is just differnt. do you notice this in people you know who are good at art? maybe its just me. i dont know. but this shit gets to me. there is something wrong with artfag's brains.

 

can anyone relate?

they have an outlet for their 'wierdness'

where as most suits at desk jobs keep it inside.

 

and yeah.... normal is a thousand shades of gray.

I notice it's always the people who you don't

expect to be an artist and keep the 'good

shit' for themselves are always the weirdest/

most unique ones.

 

For the most part.. I hate "artists".

 

Something about going to schools where

tuition is more than most people's homes to

"learn" how to create "art" baffles me.

 

I've always been fascinated with people like

Jackson Pollock. Hate all you want, the man

wasn't very spectacular at basic art.. but it's

what he damned himself to. Destroyed himself

with. That, to me, is an artist.

 

I wish I could have been there to see people

tell him what he does "Isn't art". I've got a

feeling some rough words and a fifth upside

from clavicle to cerebellum might come into play.

 

I don't know what this has to do with what

you were saying.. but it's been on my mind.

I know too many kids in art school that

would catch a stern stomping from people

of the past for being style-obsessed ninnies.

 

The most fascinating art isn't made by

functional people. That'd be like a Sunday

walk through the park, I can see that anywhere.

Now, show me what a man who's caught a

glimpse of madness can produce and I'll

show you the differnce between people who

sleep at night and people who see the world

in shadows.

The most conflicted and, although i hate to say it, unstable person i ever met has also been the most emotionally honest which translated into some amazing self expression.

26, i see where your coming from. i personally think artschool is a joke. i know a few people that go to artschool that think its a joke too. but, after college, the highpaying artworld is looking for kids who came from really good artschools. you need some degree is this and that and it sucks.

 

the most skilled artists know they dont need some artschool bullshit.

 

and yeah, the whole "what is normal" thing could come into the deal too. but, like i said it was a generalization, meaning of basic-everyday people.

i am left handed. they say that if you're left handed that the right side of your brain is the dominant side. so really i'm in my right mind. its everyone else thats ten times wierd.

 

 

just another thought:

kids that go to art school and learn art, are not artists. kids that find the creativity form within are the true artist. but really i dont see anything wrong with someone who has found an understanding of art and creativity, going to school to learn more proficiant techniques.

I love reading skewed perceptions about art school by people that haven't experienced it, or who experienced it and missed the point.

 

Rinse kinda got it though... people don't go to art school to learn how to make art, nobody gets in there without talent, ability, or desire to create. Art school simply gives you direction and guidance.

<span style='color:black'>My art skills are awesome. Every one knows i am off on my own little journey through space but Id say that 90% of the people I know dont even know that I draw or paint. When people catch me drawing they are like "I've known you for years and i didnt know you could do shit like that." It is strange. I wouldnt consider myself a fag, though. What's up with that?</span>

Yeah, I wasn't trying to come off as condescending...

or as an asshole. I understand it's hard to make

a living with art without proof you're committed.

I can't fault anyone for the way things are.

 

 

:D

 

I just can't compute going to school to learn

techniques as how to make your art more

palletable... seems like writing music to a

Led Zepplin CD and expecting to come up

with something that's truely your own.

 

I'm not trying to hate on anyone.. just saying

how I see things. Not saying they're right.

i think art comes from pain and/or dealing with bullshit or something... i guess it also comes from an extreme positive feeling that comes from inspiration and whatnot...

 

allright scratch that, i think that artists are wierd because they deal with shit in life that everyone is supposed to "just deal with" or "get over" by doing art. or something like that. when most people just "be a man" or whatever and deal with shit, artists are the people that need something (their art) to have as an outlet. most people have some sort of outlet like that, but artists produce something that will allways be, publicly or not, critiqued by people, so i guess that says something. i dont know if that makes sense.

i personally hate the word "artist", it seems so so self important to me, i mean, what makes someone more of an artist than the next guy? is it that you have been "taught art" at some fancy school? i remember reading somewhere about the worlds highest paid "fecal artist" he took a shit in a jar, and sold it for like $20 000 or something to an anonymous art collector, seriously. can you really call someone who can take a shit an artist? he probably went to art school and got his "qualified artist" status, then shat in jars and made tons of money. why cant i do that and make money? or some random homeless dude? what makes some other guys shit in a jar some poigniant statement?

...i am not sure how much sense i am making right now, i am having trouble saying what i want to say. whatever...
