Flustered by the drivel that passes for 'great' art?

Baffled about how to respond? Don't give up. Read regularly WHAT THE HECK IS ART? and fight back!

The Art Renewal Center

Lost in the gutter of Cubism, Modernism, Post-modernism, Expressionism, Dadaism and other rubbishisms? Find real art at the ARC.

False Gods

They can't draw or paint or create a half-decent artwork but are worshiped by the art establishment as Gods. We prefer to remain infidels and refuse to kowtow to the False Gods of Art.

How the culture-vultures impoverished my soul

One expects art to ennoble our souls, much like a novel by Victor Hugo or a film by Bimal Roy. Instead, stepping into a gallery is like stepping on shit -bullshit.

Critiquing the critics

We smack down these smug bastards and their idiotic art-jargonese con mucho gusto!

This couple has to be among the most talented artists ever to have visited India. Going over their work at their website is a sheer delight. I marveled at their brushstrokes. Unlike many other artists whose paintings on the net can only be seen as a small, low res images, Scott and Susan have given close ups of many of their works and God bless them that they did. As an artist I can spend long evenings imagining the movement of the brush and it's play on the support, just as one might imagine traversing a beautiful landscape whilst listening to Mozart. I dearly would love to see their paintings in person.
