Contemporary Art

A picture on display
brought utter dismay.
Why choose such a place
to hang an utter disgrace?

Unfit for adult or child,
it could drive people wild!
Influence all mankind
and corrupt the mind!

Though no one knows
what it means or shows,
it is quite obvious to me
what a blank canvas should be.

    An insightful bit of verse nicely embellished with poetic rhyme and rhythm.

    Yes, some modern art is not really art to me. Was Pablo Picasso a genius or just dyslexic? What do you think?

    Picasso during his early days drew life like pictures but later on fell on a different track. I also can't appreciate this period of him. He had enough talents but fell on a different groove after a time. Experimentation with different forms of art is good but it should also be appealing to the general public. Persons like us are odd men here. What to do?

    I also fully agree with this poet's idea about contemporary art. Just splash a bottle of ink over a canvass and it becomes an art of great symbol and philosophy. There will always be a ready made group to clap, appreciate and dissect the art as a marvel of symbolism. It seems that all the Medieval artists and painters rather wasted their life in the eyes of these so called group of intellects! The advocates of Post modernism in all forms of arts and literature are rather dragging the true sense of art and literature into real pitfalls.
