When people don't GET paintings they call it sloppy...

A true painter has control over their medium. What i don't get is when painters such as: de Kooning, Pollock, Basquiat, and myself paint in a seemingly spontaneous style they are regarded as sloppy. More so me as a upcoming artist than the former 3. With my art no line, color or shape is laid down unintentionally. I think its funny that some people who don't understand that call my art sloppy. No matter how good it is. Fools are stupid.

A sloppy painting, even if it's done well, is still sloppy. A person can draw scribbles and even if they drew those scribbles well and made a beautiful piece of art, it doesn't suddenly become a straight line. It's still scribbles.

i can name 10 artists that are considered by some to be "sloppy" and profane. but they will overshadow any of the sterile placid "refined" art that you can name.

Everyone has their thing. I think some of the messy paintings look very trippy, there's some cool effects that can come with it, but MS paint slop is what shouldn't be in anyone's gallery.
