Does the piece in this vote actually say all those things  ........     ?


It opens more questions than answers them.  At least for me.

Strange that this would even be a poll.

AWW is not special in this regard, there are many others out there like him.  I don't know how many chinese artists, but this guy is obviously influenced by other art styles.

I must admit that I have the artistic ability of an autistic squid on fire, but even I could make something like the OP's pic. In fact I did when I was bored at my in-laws house....

Art is just expressing yourself.  Anyone can be an artist if they have that desire to express themselves in this way.

Bruce Lee had a great philosophy regarding art - well he talked of the martial arts.  He referred to training as 'teaching you how to express yourself'.  The medium was different of course, the the underlying concept is the same.

Everyone can create art.

By that definition the 6 year old at my in-laws new years thing who was arranging those monkey candies in a similar pattern is also extremely talented.

Maybe I should steal her works when she isn't looking and sell them?
