Copy Cat Art

Zombie Art on the Walls

Why does so many abstracts look the same?

A good question.
I just read this article and it is a real eye opener into the world of art collectors today and why so much bad art is made/sold. Some artists are just in for the money, no real feelings for their work. Make sure to see the slide show.

I look at a lot of art on my Facebook, in magazines, etc, and I see this also, but from another stand point. There are a few well known artists out there who are very social, give workshops, share too much. The result being that their students come out of the workshops painting like the teachers. They really don't have their own voice. They see that the teacher sells well and they wish to do the same so they copy expecting instant sales. As a result there is an flood of paintings that look the same. Then they don't sell. They get bummed and quit before finding their own artistic voice. It's really sad.

I hope that if my own work starts looking like a copy someone will have the guts to slap me back into my own skin.

Peace, love, and happy creating
