Ugly Art: What is the difference between good art and bad art?
Have you ever seen a piece of artwork and you just look at it and wonder WTF? I have-- and it made me wonder what elements create a good piece versus a bad piece of art? I mean there are all the usual design principals and color theories of course-- but what else... I see a lot of "abstract" artists shitting spatters on canvas with no rhyme or reason as well-- this is not aimed at anyone-- more of an observation. Just because you have a brush, load it with paint, trowel-trudge-- and thrust it upon an unassuming plane does not make it artistic.
But anyway-- back to the original question. What makes bad art?
