A discussion

I’m very of the mind that digital media has overtaken art, and anyone can make it. Not many can make it “good” though. It’s believed by many that painting is dead, but why? People are becoming talent less in my opinion. I see a lot of the works of art in galleries these days and think its a bunch of pretentious nonsense. I see no skill, no time or effort. Many of the artists have teams of assistants to do most of the work for them. Why do we make art? Why do they make art? I think they make it for money and attention. I make art for myself, its my escape from reality. That is what I think true art is. Creating beauty from within yourself, for unselfish reasons.
