☕ David Antoine Why is Modern Art so bad ? Here is a nice short video explaining why "Modern art is a competition between the ugly and the twisted; the most shocking wins"... Interesting to watch : youtube.com/watch?...

🏒 Lucian Marin The classical artists weren't simply painters. They were engineers like Leonardo da Vinci. Their paintings were a form of engineering perfection. To sculpture people out of rocks you need more than talent, you need to know geometry and physics. Today's "artists" are brain dead people. If you look at the graph you can see that modern science took off when classical art started to decline. Is that a simple coincidence or the guy in the video is wrong?
😀 Tom That's an interesting point. As someone with an engineering background, maybe I should get into art (again). I've been meaning to visit the local art museum.
☕ David Antoine I don't know, that's a good question. Maybe there is a correlation, or even a causation ? Modern science also unfortunately resulted, to some extent, in more "aseptic" societies, in the sense that we are more and more individualistic, egocentric and living "fast" without even taking the time to watch a sky full of stars for example. Which was a long time ago probably the most powerful drive for imagination. We lost the capacity to be amazed by nature in general and I guess that could have impacted the way we see art. Put it that way : Is Modern Art to Classical Art what fast food is to fine food ? That would be my small thinking :)
