  1. This is the type of art I like. None of that Jackson Pollock and successor’s crap.

    While there is intelligence behind Pablo Picasso’s works, he opened the door for the stupidity that substitutes for art.

    (For the record, if people want that rubbish, they’re more than welcome to it out of their own pockets. However, I resent even a single red cent of my forced contribution “tax” going towards any of it.)

      • Why would you commission a non-photograph portrait if you wanted that?

        You would commission a painting so the artist can use his skill to portray some of the personality and achievements of the subject, not just his/her facial features.

        Even good photographers try to do this but top painters do it better.

    • That’s a very good point, although I think it’s art because the artist still has created that expression in. her face, which deeply illustrates her mood. So it is art, in my opinion. Even if it was a photograph, it would still be art, because the photographer has caught the mood, so the question is neither here nor there. It’s art whichever way it was produced.

      Interestingly, there are apps now which can render a photograph into a ‘painting’. Their effect is rather crude, but what do you expect from a free app? Probably there is very sophisticated software which can do exactly the same, but on an infinitely more indistinguishable scale.

      Did you read the article about the artist ? The links down the bottom show he is not the only artist involved in this type of art. Looking at the videos tells me it is as much art as any other form — it is not just a “technical drawing” exercise. Whether you like it is up to the viewer and what sort of art they like.
      Personally I admire the skill of these artists doing this type of art. On the other hand I do not like abstract art. A bit like wine –what some people like others cannot drink.

  2. Well if that isn’t a photo it impresses the hell out of me – who struggles to draw stick figures properly.
    But I’m having difficulty ‘reading’ the subject. Is she sad, happy, thoughtful, free, …?
    What is the artist conveying, beyond how damned clever s/he is with a brush?
    The detail, the light, the technicality is fabulous – but is that enough?
