So it's hipster-safe to like Bob Ross but not Tom Kinkade...f**king d-bag artists. lol Give it 20 years and your kids will be on the "painter of light" like he was Johnny Cash.
"...All I'm saying is that there are more people in this world that enjoy the simple stuff or even mundane stuff over the complicated stuff when it comes to hanging things on the wall. Contemporary, postmodern, conceptual, relational art is a small, exclusive part of a much bigger world. but you know what, most of us at a base level get what the more complicated stuff is saying as well.
It just seems weird how some artists can align themselves with the "masses" when it comes to things like OWS but then want to be among the 1% when it comes to taste. Kind of like having your cake and eating it too I guess. A very exclusionary and elitist mindset to me it seems. I for one prefer Twinkies over caviar but I am also a big fan of Arte Povera and Barouqe. Different strokes right? Are some of you trying to suggest that you do not partake in anything within the realm of mass culture or even “bad taste”? If so, you are better people than me I guess.
I am not a fan of Kinkade but what do I know? Have fun kids. Happy Easter, if that is your thing." -anonymous FB post
