    Susan says:
  • ok, just like all supposed ‘high fashion’, these are soooooo dumb

    the voice of reason says:
  • Either brilliant, or dreadful, I can’t tell.

    Cavriola says:
  • soooooooo beautiful. real art 🙂

    c says:
  • this is freaking me out! and that is good.

    jingthink says:
  • This is so inspired by artist photographer Levi van Veluw a dutch compatriot of lucy and bart and very much “view on colorish” but it still is nice.. but nice is just not good enough..

    Map says:
  • the “grown on you” pictures… my nephew creates that art in the bathtub!

    me says:
  • So much work for something what is so easy to make in photoshop

    djoi says:

    wayang times says:
  • perfect

    i0_ says:
  • I think some people would be offended by some of the mostly facial art . They are born with some of these disfigurements and may be hurt by your artwork.

    maggie says:
  • weird, stupid, ugly…

    James O says:
  • Cool stuff

    Alrick says:
  • Stick with the chick too much hair on the Fruit of the Picasso Loom guy…LOL!

    Jag says:
  • Super cool. Love it.

    GSL says:
  • Some photos make me sick…

    @ says:

    Adam says:
  • i think it is the weirdest thing i’ve ever seen!mordern art is sure at its worst, and i suppose to art critics that would make it more valuable! what a world of tangled irony we live in!!!

    Critical Diane says:
  • what a sexy girl NICEas

    MATA says:
  • How Bizarre!!!!!

    kt says:
  • Muy buena sesion, excelente creatividad!

    Pep says:
  • wow.
    this is art?
    because as i recall my art his prof teaching
    this wasnt it…
    where is the meaning? the passion? the effort.

    woohoo paper and bubbles….. give me a break.

    Alf. says:
  • to the person above…

    if you can’t see the passion in the photos above i am not sure what you are looking at or what you are seeing.

    i could see the argument of the time of “high art” saying they are ugly and not pleasing to the eye, but saying they have no meaning, passion, or effort? that is ridiculous.

    these pieces evoke pain and stuggle with representation of the human form in todays media. they speak to the impossibility and narrowmindedness of beauty today. they mutilate the body like the mass media is today with the skin and bones models. these pieces highlight the passion of the body and its ability to trasform and how that ability has been diminished by mass media.

    and that is just the surface of these pieces passion and meaning.

    and as for the effort? each one would have dtakken days to form carefully. the “paper and bubbles” were created with purpose and the expression painstakingly considered.

    next time please actually see, do not just look, and then make a comment.

    i see says:
  • creativity is such an amazing thing. not all art speaks to everyone, but the passion behind it should inspire and evoke thought.

    heidibu says:
  • To those who don’t view this as art: There are some art exhibits that are just piles of candy. My teacher told me about it, I forget who the artist is. But still, if a pile of candy or paper or even a pile of trash is considered art, then this is considered art.

    Don’t bash someone else’s effort just because you don’t like it, because there will always be someone that does like it.

    To be honest, this art isn’t my style, it’s not something I want to see. But I still appreciate the time and effort that it took to create it, as well as the feeling that the artists put into it.

    JDB says:

    moby says:
  • uhhhhhh

    numa numa guy says:
  • Passion? No, just fun.

    pika says:
  • This probably has something to do with the legal weed.
