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!

Chullu bhar pani for Rajdeep Sardesai

Rajdeep Sardesi lost any respect I had for him when he, like many others, sat on the Radia tapes to save his corrupt media colleagues from embarrassment(that is the most charitable motive for his silence). Now, in this video he calls M.F.Husain one of India's finest artist-





Now, my respect for Sardesai is in negative territory and falling. Anybody who calls Husain a fine artist needs to his something examined. You don't even need an ounce of grey matter -just your eyes. But the question is - are you going to believe them? Unfortunately, too many of our elites prefer to negate that what is obvious out of fear -fear of being branded fools and boors. Take a look at a Husain-

and now explain what is so great about it. Just try.

Sardesai does art as well as he does objective journalism. That Anjolie Ela Menon and Vadhera have a vested interst in bad art is a given - She makes it and he peddles it, both making an unholy packet in the process. What is Sardesai's excuse? May I offer him the same body of water -chullu bhar pani -that this blog offered Husain?
