Don't you think that status given to some forms of art is overestimated?
Or what will a person gain when he attends a concert for some singer ?, the thing that drives me crazy about concerts is that some people faint when they see the singer, wt.. ?
People watching a ball going around from leg to leg, then try to shoot it inside a box, it is entertaining, i agree, but does not deserve people getting high pressure for it, besides why watch it when you can play it ?
Some artists create weird looking things, then people say wow, critics say, he truly knows how to put his emotions into his work, lol, frankly, if that weird looking thing (i don't even know what to call it) will have any positive effect on my life whatsoever, then i am interested, if not, then it does not worth a penny.

So, that was me, how about you ?
As for paintings, yes i do not know their alphabet, but i've always liked Nature more, i mean what is more appealing to the eye, a natural animated painting god draws every day or another solid copy painted by some person ?, just like my avatar, i took this photo in Alex, sun rays falling on the sea, sparkling, just brilliant, the nearest form to that is an actual picture of it, then comes the paintings.
Anyway, it is the idea of selling it to people that bothers me when they can just put them all in museum.
Thanks Mr. Zoser for your answer, magnificent as usual :)
