Baffled about how to respond? Don't give up. Read regularly WHAT THE HECK IS ART? and fight back!
Lost in the gutter of Cubism, Modernism, Post-modernism, Expressionism, Dadaism and other rubbishisms? Find real art at the ARC.
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.
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.
We smack down these smug bastards and their idiotic art-jargonese con mucho gusto!

If one didn't know it would be all but impossible to tell that it was painted in just three colors!
According to Mr.Simone-
The philosophy “less is more” definitely applies. Self-imposed limitations such as this force the artist to rely more on his or her creativity. Having fewer color options one can no longer attempt to copy the subject tone for tone. Instead the painter must focus on relationships. How warm or cool,light or dark, intense or neutral, sharp or lost, is one passage compared to the whole. The end result is not only a more advanced process but stronger harmonies in the finished product.
Another benefit from being a practitioner of the limited palette is that the artist learns to do with color what was once done with value. Specifically, the depiction of light and shadow is better when the artist focuses more on color temperature and less on how light or dark
each passage is. A medium value intense warm makes for a more convincing depiction of light than a low intensity white.

Thank you Kumars for doing your bit to turn Indian art into a wasteland.
Thank you for sucking the soul out of art. While talented artists struggled and perished you patronised these rotten mediocrities(actually much worse than mediocrities).
Thank you, thank you and thank you.

Just to step out of the shit, wash our feet and feel clean, here is a lovely painting by Scott Burdick-

Peter Rabbit, along with Benjamin Bunny, was named after a pet rabbit Beatrix Potter had as a child. The first Peter Rabbit story, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, was originally created in 1893 as a letter to the young son of Potter's former governess. The boy was ill, and Potter wrote him a story to help him pass the time and to cheer him up. The letter included sketches illustrating the narrative.
It wasn't until June 1902 that the story was published by Frederick Warne & Co, but by the end of the year, 28,000 copies were in print. Over the years, The Tale of Peter Rabbit has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide and as of 2008, the Peter Rabbit series has sold more than 151 million copies in 35 languages.
