So what do you think about Pricasso?
A boy and girl in my highschool art class (yes...about 15/16) did this for a project and got very good responses from my teachers..I don't think this is a new idea at all, but it is interesting!
I think it's a fun idea and quite harmless. As long as no one comes around claiming it's a "deep and perplexing exploration of the human psyche which illustrates our fear of the unknown" or something else I'm allright with it... Why you'd pay the guy a bunch of money for something you can do for a lot less at home I'm not sure though.
"High art" is now just a code word for "do sum' trolololo squiggle, say it's a depiction of Christ's unmentionables as a brilliant commentary on contemporary society, get art community backing and the nouveau riche will buy whatever".
My sketchbook thread:
Heres a quick, one colour design i came up with for one of my previous bands "The Cold Front"
We played the Death/core style/genre of metal hence the spikey nature of the drawing.
