Im sorry..you just gotta choose how to handle what he said, possibly use it as constructive criticism?
Constructive criticism is supposed to be a "helpful" form of criticism. What this douche bag did was straight up insult op. Art is unique in that no one can really judge a piece of art since all artists have their own style. Op, fuck that dick head. I'm sure you're a wonderful artist. He's probably just jealous.
Well in fairness if you got them showcased in an exhibition surely somebody finds your work good! Besides that don't let critics stop you from painting if it makes you happy.
@34, That was what I am thinking. Art is not structured, there is no rules of art. As long as it has (deep) meaning to you and your intended audience (could be you as well), then you did good. People love paintings, sculptures, music that is different because it could relate more to them. Everybody has little quirks, art should as well. So OP, if you think that you did something wrong just because a critic told you that you did, then you do not understand the full meaning of art.
How exactly can art be objectively judged? How is an insightful painting by picasso objectively any better than a todler's picture of a house. To anyone who has been berated for their art, remember: any way to call it "bad", or I suppose good, is sheerly a matter of arbitrary values and oppinions.
@58 & 78, then again there are general criterias, as society likes,such and such a thing, and it depends of the movement. But art can be as easy as making a dot in a blank page, but if you work hard on a art piece it can also be rejected. That's why you have to be able to justify and defend your art.
I guess there goes your chance of becoming the next Van Gogh. Shame
Hey, everyone has a different eye for things! I'm sure your art is great :)
