I'm not an arty guy, but in saying that I like nice things, I went to an art exhibition about 30 years ago for a friend who was raising money. I was taken by two water colours and I successfully bid on two of these. I paid $200 for both. The artist has started to get a bit of fame now. I spoke to her a year or so ago about my purchases, she said they are worth about $1000 each now. That to me is art. The stuff above I just don't get. Never have and never will. Our local council just bought an " art " thing for our city worth around $400,000. ? It's a piece of crap. IMHO.

I know what I like and what I don't like. The above doesn't appeal to me, but having taken my landscape photography to exhibition level and sold a number of limited edition signed prints, once seen all sorts sell and some really nice stuff not sell. People are odd like that.
