ALL ART IS BAD ART

Its always a guarantee that someone is going to think your art is bad. It's not always a guarantee that someone is going to think your art is good. So if you just accept that all art is bad art it makes it easier to do the art you want to do.

This has always been my philosophy as a creator and I hope by sharing it, it could possibly encourage other artists and creators to realize that it is okay to fail, its okay to make ugly art, its okay to make art that you or others think is BAD.

The photoset above began when I started to realize that I am allowed to think that art in museums is bad. Not all the pieces pictured are pieces that I would categorize as bad art (some of them I think are quite good) My goal is to start a conversation about why certain art is put above others and what criteria is needed for art to be considered good.
