great siteski! wonderful collection of bad art from a bad (good, though, too, right?) artist. i think it's all art. sure that's a huge statement but i truely believe it. yes, shit on a wall is art if someone, anyone, really SEES it as such. there doesn't even need to be a point, a purpose, a revalation intrinsically designed for the viewer. it is/was created, it wasn't a waste of time no matter what it looks like. i know i'm rambling, but.. my last point is... my worst pet peeve is hearing the phrase "well i'm not an artist" - you sign your name don't you? you make a mark, somewhere in your life there is evidence that contradicts that supposed "lack of the 'art gene'". even the poetry of how we communicate is art - body language, dreaming, sex, sadness & rage. the mediocre, the dull, the excessive and rude, the (yeah yeah get the point) etc. - it is, you guessed it, living art filling space and time, if not our memories, or museums.

Stuart - 11/15/00 08:32:44
Opinion of Modern Art: Art? God is dead.

Truly horrible, but you're kind of coasting here. Even intentionally amateur art is expressive. Have you ever studied programming? Here, you can make an entire career of arrogant pretense, instead of a hobby. It is ignorant to criticise art, but it is tru y evil to second-guess the engineer, and the things we make lack even aesthetic purpose.

As the internet shrinks the world the contributions of indivuals become more homogenous, reducing the value of each globally but increasing its value locally. Do you charge by the hour or by the painting?

Hey, wonderful stuff. Have you considered doing miniatures? I am presently one of only two active Genericists, and as a co-founder of a whole movement I have to tell you: start taking yourself seriously - bad art, good art, if you have pretensions and a whore of an agent you'll go anywhere.

Jezebel was my absolutely favorite piece. I'd love to have something painted. Everyone says this, but you wouldn't have to send it to me. Maybe you could just post it on your sight. I especially liked your babies and animals. Maybe you could paint a baby iding a dog or cat. Do you know how to paint lobsters or lizards or hamsters? A baby sitting next to a lobster would be great. I take an industrial welding class because I loved the movie "Flashdance". I, too, am a struggling/horrible artist. I often melt my projects or set my pants on fire while welding. I often ask the other students in the class, "Do you smell smoke or are my pants just on fire again?" My favorite piece that I have welded is a two foot long sewer piper with a iron slab across the top. I call it the "T". It sits in the corner of my and Robert's apartment with a plant on it. My cats Andre and Ursa like to stand near the "T".

Is this a dating questionnaire? My, those are slightly personal interrogations. Despite all that, your webpages are marvelous! I was having a horrendous case of painter's block and so decided to peruse paintings on the web. Finding your page, I toured every gallery fastidiously and laughed my ass off. It was great. Keep painting.

Dominic Chan - 06/23/00 06:57:13
Opinion of Modern Art: It's of this world and of this time.

That's the way it should be. What the artists feel or think are more important than what people generally could notice. Let photography captures the details and art to express perception.

Favourite Italian food: Can't beat a good pizza, unless......Can you get you get Curry in italy?

Sorry it's taken so long 8000 odd people beat me to it. I liked it! Does that mean I have no taste? I sense that as bad art becomes more acceptable artists such as yourself have to constantly probe the boundaries of baddness to avoid becoming that which you strive to react against. For me the picture of the cat maintains your status of the godfather of bad art. Respect. Must meet up for a pint soon J.

Bohemian pretentions?: The heart of America lives at Walt Whitman's house
Favourite Italian food: mmm...baked ziti...

I am completely awestruck by the artistic depth of your collection. "Teletubby" captures a pathos rarely depicted to such a haunting extent in the visual realm. Are portraits of Po, Dipsy, and Tinky-Winky still to come? We can only hope! And your "Hall of Shame" collection! Bravo! As a purveyor of the movement that IS "bad art," I certainly appreciate all four of the selections contained therein. Great site-- and remember, The Chad loves you!

I don't think I have ever seen anything quite like your collection of art. Your "not Michael Jackson" quite took my breath away. I had to take some brandy before I had the strength to write.

Loved your site. As a Mortgage Broker by day and "Bad Artist" by night I can really relate. I frame all of my paintings and hang them in the living room. Actually most of this stuff isn't bad at all. I liked the piano. I'll be back!

jean dubuffet said it best, "remember that there is only one way to paint well, while there are a thousand ways to paint badly; it's from them that i expect something new, that i hope for revelations, all the possible ways of painting badly interest me because i think that through them you can reach new ways of thinking." check out my web site, the art is naive and expressionistic as is yours : also check out the museum of bad art (you could be a contender) most importantly, keep up the "bad

Your art seems to me dared, funny and satiric. I suppose it has a reason to be, beyond a simple joke of yourself. I really don't know what it's going on your artistic environment, for you to do what you do. Seeing you gives me the satisfaction of knowing hat in some other place in the world there is people who rebels like this, which is fantastic. Go on with your good bad art.

Your teletubby painting's real good. I like the teletubbies a lot because they make me feel good when I watch them. I think that they're really honest and innocent and it's like a vision from the flipside of reality or something. It's sort of like the riumph of surrealism, you know. The fact that these little gibbering bubbles of fantastic alien color are ushering America's newborns into the world. For the next generation, television will be even more real than it was for my generation. It'll be equ ted with birth itself. What a beautiful way to look at birth -- "just like turning on a t.v. set" -- wonderful. Well, Marshall MacLuhan already said, like 50 years ago, that with t.v. and all these new technologies & stuff, individuals' central nervous ystems were being extended beyond the normal limits of the physical self -- we are all becoming one interpenetrating thought-complex, you know, like global society as a whole is evolving spiritually together rather than seperately (or at least this is wha needs to happen). And this is why people create art. No, that isn't true. But it's why I create art, primarily why I create art. I want to create culture, you know. I think that art that's just about "personal expression" is oftentimes really banal nd lifeless because it doesn't relate to a larger community. And I think this is why I like your teletubby painting so much because it's so topical. It's like some Cagean Anarchist dreamland. The teletubbies themselves are really like a symphony by Joh Cage, right, because everything in that show is repeated endlessly and slowed down and done again and again with slight differences in order to change the consciousness of the viewer, allowing us to find new ways of processing the same sensory input. It s like what Cage always says about boredom and how things are only boring if you're not paying attention to them and that the longer you listen to something the more interesting it becomes. I think that the best thing about your teletubby painting is how much you've allowed yourself to get into the egoless and child-visionary mindset of the teletubby universe and to transmit that state of pure consciousness to the person looking at your art. I mean, it's really beautiful, but it's not incredibly painterl or expressive. And certainly by choosing the teletubby motif you're not being "original" or anything so pretentious as that. What you've created is just an egoless record of the "ambient cultural noise" (MacLuhan again) that surrounds us all, right? A d the colors are even more brilliant and vibrational than those of the pixilated television -- no small feat to accomplish in a painting. It's absolutely a beatiful, incredible, mind-expanding experience looking at your teletubby painting. Completely su lime! It's really really good. Now, as far as "bad art" is concerned, I of course don't believe that your paintings qualify. I hope you're not disappointed. I've seen a lot of stuff out there that's far far worse than yours. For instance, Clyfford St ll (Is that spelled right) -- he's a real fuckhead. Anyway, you seem like a really nice guy and that's really 70% of what matters in life (on this side of reality, anyway, in which hard cold facts and materialism and Cartesian bullshit still holds sway o er the minds of millions). If you're a nice guy, people will like you and they'll like your art because they like you. Furthermore, the artists that everybody hates are usually the ones that are mean and ugly and pretentious and full of shit. Nobody li es a fuckhead. Well, everybody liked Picasso and he was a fuckhead. Dali was basicall a fuckhead who artists don't usually like but who everybody else in the world likes. So I guess sometimes even fuckheads can be winners. Anyway, I think that this ar (I'm talking about your art now) is just wonderful and I think that you must be a really nice guy and a great artist and I'm gonna send you a photo as soon as possible and I hope to Gosh that you get it and make me some art because I love your work. Or aybe we can trade because that's what real artists do, right? Maybe you can draw a teletubby on top of my photograph for me. That would be really really great. But I guess I shouldn't tell you what to do because you probably already want to do the sort of things that you ordinarily do and I don't want to disrupt your creative process, even if you're a "bad" artist who doesn't have a creative process. Oh, I'm making this "Comment" really long because that way it will stand out and you'll have more of a hance of actually reading it (or at least skimming it). So, if you're reading this now, I have one last proposal: IF YOU'RE EVER GOING TO BE COMING TO NEW YORK, PLEASE CONTACT ME SO THAT I CAN GET YOU TO COME AND SPEAK AT MY COLLEGE. WE CAN GIVE YOU A N CE MEAL & LOTS OF MONEY AND YOU'LL BE ABLE TO TELL A BUNCH OF ART MAJORS HOW TO BE SHLOCKY ARTISTS (WE'D ALL LOVE TO HEAR YOU BECAUSE MOST OF US THINK THAT ART IS BY NATURE PRETENTIOUS AND BOURGEOIS AND IT'S HEARTENING TO SEE SOMEBODY LIKE YOU OUT THERE T YING TO DESTROY ALL OF THAT ART-WORLD BULLSHIT SINGLEHANDEDLY). Thank you for your time, thanks for listening. Do not hesitate to email me (AND IF ANYBODY ELSE OUT THERE HAS FOUND MY LITTLE RANT ENTERTAINING, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO EMAIL ME YOUR OWN OSH-DURN SELF, OK?). Cool. Bye-BYE, everybody! Got to rock on!

I think this site is a half assed conceit. No one says, "Look at me, see how bad I am" and ever really means it. You sir are a coward. Bad artists should not paint. Your pictures, conversely, are very, very interesting. The style is honest and the subject matter extremely relevant and contemporary. You have true talent. Why be frightened to admit it? Why hide your light when you should be out there shining bright y? Keep up the good work but for Christ's sake start being real about your talent.

You are the best artist from Kilburn. Hodgkin watch out! Can I be so bold as to give you a pointer or two? Sure success! Why not put a whole anteater . . . or . . hmmmm. . . . maybe a shark . . . into some kind of an aquarium and fill it with some green l quid, maybe formaldehyde or something, and display the whole thing. People will go nuts over it. Hey, no need to thank me. I get these silly ideas once in a while. By the way, consider yourself under my commission. When I find a suitable photo it'll be on its way.

There is way too much pontificating that poses as visual art with no or little attention paid to craftsmanship. Why don't these people just get on a soap box in Washington Square Park instead of hogg- ing up all of the NYC gallery spaces. And if they are not at least addressing issues, then they're making work such as the piece featured in 3/98 (or 4/98?) Art in America: "I Peed Myself." Curators: Get a clue!!!!! Stop validating this shit (literally).

Well, I know I'm in a difficult situation, because I admit that so much of what passes for art these days is crap, but I know if I try to defend modern art, or artists working today who feel that serious talent, serious need for expression and even inspir tion necessarily override or outweigh irreverence and sarcasm, what I hear in return is, "What a pretentious asshole! Out-dated bag of hot air! Living fossil!" etc. But I've got news for you, pal, the idea was great... once. The 'pieces' are...bad, you sa d it! (No, I mean really bad!). But what you're doing, by creating truly bad paintings and passing your work off as an artistic statement, is undermining to a small extent the entire concept of human capacity to Create, which is one of the very few things that differentiates us from other animals in the first place! Haven't you ever watched a movie, or heard a piece of music, and been so moved, that it ...inspired you? I'm guessing you've never seen a painting that's given you that feeling, or else you hav , but can't accept it on its own without all the pretentious 'baggage', and have become so jaded by the countless other really bad artists out there (and filmmakers, and musicians,...) who had your idea before you, or just love to slam the concept of art n the first place, that for the sake of convenience, ALL modern art is crap. And that is a crying shame, for art and our ability to create it can only die out when we die out as well, am I wrong? And if an idea has already been realized, then there's got o be SOMEthing original, some innovation, that makes it stimulating in some way, doesn't that make sense? Every time I see someone passing off bad paintings as 'art', for whatever reason, it's the same feeling I get as when I see a pile of beer bottles in the middle of a forest, know what I mean? Sorry for the attack, nothing personal really, but you did lay yourself wide open. Find some creative hobby instead, believe me, the rewards are immensely greater.

Hey, I dig your extremely loose and fun approach to painting... I am a recovering graphic artist. I have found that I absolutely abhor that medium, save for the fact that I still like to attempt web graphics and design from time to time. So I am about t take a stab at what I feel is MY idea approach to painting, and that is to plant myself in front of a blank canvas, with plenty of paint poured onto a canvas at my side, and let loose. The only thing that I would have pre-planned is the color scheme. N t even a sketch. I just want to let the ideas flow straight from my subconscious, if that sounds corny enough for ya. But that seems to be where my best stuff comes from. I've spent many a boring moment at my old shitty graphics job, doodling without even really thinking, and produced some COOL looking stuff (at least I think so) in about five minutes. Anyway, if you l ok at my website right now, it doesn't contain anything like that. All it is is second rate (but fun!) web graphics, a couple of pencil drawings, a couple of CorelDRAW graphics, and a Photoshop/Painter 5.0 graphic. Be cool! --Cathy

once i saw this exhibit by a sculpture major at Rhode Island School ofDesign (very prestigious) and it was her final and all it was was little balls of hair like you find in the bath stuck to cellophane tape and stuck to the wall. You have to have balls o do that. another person's project was to combine many rolls of toilet paper by unrolling them, taping them end to end and rolling them up again. the result was a huge 4' roll of toilet paper just laying on the floor.

Hi, I think your web site is cute. And your teletubby was great, satisfying my fetish for all things British. I am fed up with high art pretensions as well and hate the reactions I get from professors about my underground comix. They can fuck off. : ) . I write because I want to move to London for a few months when I graduate next year, and i was planning to work on street corners painting portraits of any willing passer-bys onto black velvet, I thought maybe you could give me some location suggestio s, prime street-corners, parks, etc. . . Keep up the bad art Cheers, Rachel.

Interesting website. I like the luscious paint on the "Piano". Great art seems to have very much to do with who you know (cliques). At first I thought you were talking about Soho in New York. Then I realized the original Soho is in London. I want to go back there again.

the end product is not as important as the process because it is in the abandonement to the process that gut art appears. It can be seen in the gesture left by the medium and in the rawness of the images .Within us lies an indefinite reservoir of original images. We just need to abandon our preconceptions and trust in the entity behind the breath to bring to fruition the icons floating in the abyss of our subconscious.This is the beauty of surrendering to the creative process.You never know what the end re ult is going to be,but sometimes the mind will be amazed or horrified or embarrassed ,but so what about what it thinks! The only relevance is getting out of the way and allowing it to flow
