Christ not this old chesnut again. Art cannot be quantified or determined by a set of criteria. If someone sees something as art then art it is, if someone else doesn't see the same thing as art then to them art it isn't. Admitedly I do find some things that are labeled art stretching the point a bit but who the hell am I to judge ?
At least these arse dwelling hipsters are actually creating something, worthwhile or not rather than poncing around on a football pitch playing a meaningless game for 100 grand a week paid for by the baying masses that wouldn't know a Turner if it kicked them in the nuts.

Mind you some people consider football to be art.......


Hello hello, football's an art


There's a line somewhere in J.B. Priestley's The Good Companions about "Bruddersford United AFC offering Art and Conflict for a shilling". ;)

I rarely think about the message/statements in art.

I knows what I like. :D

The expression "I'm not a pancake expert, but I know a tosser when I see one" springs to mind.

Not entirely accurate but yous gets me point.
