Half the crap I see that's worth millions to some is just that crap to me but I'm no artist so I guess it's just up to the person that wants to fork out millions for something that looks like something my 6 yr old painted.

If you can write your name in the snow when you Pee then you have talent!

It's really up to the person that sees the piece, Ive seen a lot of stuff i don't consider art but that would be something that would get the most attention.

I would say it's a good idea to have talent before embarking on a career as an artist, but i do think anybody can be one.

 No. I've seen Jackson Pollock paintings. If his paintings are any guide, my daughters juice spills should be hanging in the Louvre.

this is one of my oil paintings,I think you have to have talent and an eye for things. And there are so many different types depends on what you like and think is art.

I don't talent is required, just alot of dedication. I think being an artist is just the desire to express yourself in anyway, it could be making an ashtray from mud or painting a custom chopper. Coffee certainly helps too.

Yes without imagination  you would never be inspired, To the idea that you want to create. Like say someone gives you the word basket and told you to make them a drawing with basket in it not just a picture of a basket. You would have to be capable of using your imagination and what you see in your mind to put it on paper by your hand.
Yes, without it you won't get anywhere.

talent is the main key for becoming something if not then everybody can be every thing  they want then we wouldn't have any special people in the world .

If I was an artist,
you would be my picture!
If I was a poet,
you would be my inspiration!
If I was an author you would be my story!

But I'm only a cartoonist!

A lot of people say that abstract painting looks like something their 5 year old could do. Problem is, your 5 year old didn't do it. And intent is sometimes 95% of the art.

That said, Art is just like music and film. You can do it with just talent, but if you're good looking, have an interesting story and lots of style and confidence, that's when you make a good living at it.
It helps you initially, but makes no difference in the long run.  
#30 | 1590 days ago

Not anymore.  I saw on Conan last night a dog that paints by stepping on a canvas.  The owner sells his work for up to $100,000!!!!  That's what this world is coming to.
Anyone arrogant enough will believe they're talented
