Are you an art student?

Well, I study music, but that doesn't mean I don't know a thing or two about visual arts...

As I recall, the saying goes: "Genius is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration".

But if I might play devil's advocate, aren't you arguing that art is only art when it is the most laborious? You talk about how long and hard Michelangelo worked, but isn't much of that what you call "craft?"

The story of Salieri is a story of hard work mastering technique, without ever having the gift of Mozart, so should we call someone like Salieri an "artist" or a "craftsman?"

If Mozart perhaps did not work as hard as Salieri--does that mean that Salieri was the greater artist?

[I'm trying to remember who it was that said "Inspiration is 90% perspiration."]

Let us remember that Mozart worked too. He studied, he played the violin and the harpischord. Music is something that takes a couple of years to master. Music theory, harmony, counterpoint, music reading. I never said Salieri was not an artist, but he wasn't a great one just like Mozart. Salieri was a good composer, but he lacked feeling. I mean, photography is not as complicated regarding the technical part. I think anyone can take a picture if you show him how to push a button, but not anyone can write music down. Compared to Mozart, Salieri was a craftsman.

Regarding photography. Sure, there are marvelous photos out there, but you can't consider it an art just because it looks amazingly good, just like a carpenter builds a good-looking chair or table. You can't call him an artist, but a skilled craftsman with a good aestethic taste.

That quote belonged to Albert Einstein.

Humor ¿Bella Arte?

Yo no sé, es que lo de arte, arte es un concepto que históricamente y tradicionalmente siempre ha estado tan unido a una serie de de de corsés tan snobs, quiero decir, que el arte histórico ha sido del hombre blanco (porque el arte africano era como neutro, no había nombres, era un arte general, genérico, vasijas) pero el arte con nombres, el arte con mayúsculas, el arte de pastaza ha sido siempre de hombres blancos, heterosexuales... o que desconocía su sexualidad, y ya en el momento en que son autoconscientes... ya se convierte aquello en una cosa terrible. Entonces yo espero que lo que yo hago nunca sea arte, no quiero formar parte de esa crème

the concept art made its way into his world like that and he answers the question
neutro is someone who is not a participant, it is concretely no one

it was a joke about me making posts dispensing with what is not so that in the end they aren't understood and it's not me. I blame you

google translate must be a good idea because you might get the general meaning but you can't become picky about a line

ha ha yes Paladin was the bold fool who would have never written that

Just remember: when people like your photos, they just praise your photos and not your skill, or pseudo-art. You are just useful and you do moderate amount of work (if it includes post-processing and editing in photoshop).

ha ha this is life
back in 2011 user was the one that made sense
