I hate...I mean i HATE art with out a meaning....Total crap

illastrat Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
all my art is sublimation. i think that people that don't have some sort of deeper meaning to their art are not artists and they simply SUCK. My emotional connect is produced by my art's meaning. SUPERFICIAL art, fan art, and most anime is whats wrong with the world. A artist may not be the best draftsman or painter but EMOTION, AFFECTIVENESS, MEANING is what i love.

"all my art is sublimation."
~illastrat in I hate...I mean i HATE are with out a meaning.....Total crap

"Sublimate noun
Pronunciation: /also ˈsʌblɪmət/
Chemistry
a solid deposit of a substance which has sublimed:"
sublimation, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
I leave solid deposits in my toilet, I generally don't post them on 'art sites' and forums though. Even though they are "total crap" they do have a meaning, mostly that I am not constipated.

People find meaning and significance in different things. SO what you find meaningless crap, someone else might find incredibly emotional or personally significant, even a lame fanart character.

So......you make a post in complaints about how there is SOOOOOOOO much art without meaning, fan art(actually I have seen some very amazing fan art out there), superficial etc and post your own art in the complaint, and when people call you out on it you start taking images from their gallery and comparing it to yours............Also I did notice a very drastic difference with some, the older ones actually look a lot better and rather different, why is that?

Sorry, but I can't see why your art should be something special, just because you think there is a thought in yours, doesn't make them more beautiful, I can be honest I don't like your style and your pictures..it simply doesn't catch my eye, but I won't say it's no art....you could show a bit more respect :unimpressed:

Different people, different tastes ....

By the way, being a black artist isn't all that bad. I have a friend who makes religious rap music, and he's called a "black artist" and he doesn't seem to mind.

That's the beauty of art; it doesn't need to conform to any one meaning, thus has no real definition.

I don't have anything against art that communicates a message, and in fact can appreciate it from time to time, but for me art also satisfies if its main function is to entertain me. Not everything needs to be a preachy moral message; escapism for the win!

Dude, don't be so sophisticated.
Art is simply art. Art doesn't need a deeper meaning to be considered art. As wikipedia states: "Art is a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities; this article focuses primarily on the visual arts, which includes the creation of images or objects in fields including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media. Architecture is often included as one of the visual arts; however, like the decorative arts, it involves the creation of objects where the practical considerations of use are essential—in a way that they are usually not for a painting, for example. Music, theatre, film, dance, and other performing arts, as well as literature, and other media such as interactive media are included in a broader definition of art or the arts." In this (awesome) article, you can see a cave painting. Does it have a deep meaning? No. The painted horse was just a part of the everyday life of humans back in 16.000 BC. As well, you can see Adam by Michelangelo, the Mona Lisa, but also a Najavo rug with a simple cloth pattern and a goddamn graffiti. I think everyone can now imagine an Anime in the lower right corner, which is art aswell.
Art is everything humans can create with their hands, their creativity, is one of the most fundamental handcrafts. No deeper, philisophical meaning needs to exist to make a simple picture art. Every captured or drawn picture or even a simple thing a human created is art.
Wall of text indeed. I hope everyone gets a glimpse what art really is. Your statements are just your point of view, but you want everyone to accept them and state yourself as an awesome artist who paints pictures with super-deep meaning, which are as good as classical drawings. You're either a troll, who wants pageviews, watchers and people seeing your art, or you simply overestimate yourself.
Oh, I have to point out I don't like the stuff you draw and your style as well. It may have a deeper meaning to you (but not to me), but, however - I simply don't like it :D

Girl

We live in a generation in which if a kid wants a song, goes to the internet and download it in a minute.
We live in the "we get everything easy", so people in general doesn't like to "over-think" about art, either when creating it or when watching it

Now the problem is that you are complaining about this in the worst place ever to do that haha, deviantart
dA true artists represent a very, VERY low percentage.

So, my suggestion? Use dA as the social-media-tool that it is, just to give a little more exposure of your work. Don't expect anything from no one. This way, every once in a long while you will stumble with truly great artists, islands hidden in dA, a vast ocean of shallowness.

Seriously! Don't get angry over a place like dA and the majority of its habitants! It's not worth it!
