Artists are the greed at the dark space with in society.
When artists gather on the internet it is even worse.
2 artists should never meet and when even more than that do, things can be very strange, like in a kindergarten.
I like drawing and painting, but I hate the artist and the art industry.
Sometimes this even makes me hate drawing and painting.
I sometimes fear my hand will slip as I draw in public or in front of new friends.
I am constantly paranoid of my own skill, but more importantly, the worth of my drawings.
The artist is a denier of truth and a glorifies the useless.
I want to die because I chose this line. There's nothing else.
I understand that these are things that happen when you choose to be an artist, but none the less those anxieties should be discussed.
We should create axioms in which we aren't being stoic artists; where we discuss the anxieties of creating a clean image and of meaning in our profession. The internet and art also have a strange relationship. For me it is all very fast. Possibly too fast. And I find it meaningless to paste drawings on to a web page.

Help an Anon out here guys
Iam looking for an artist, a painter actually. Don't know the name of him or where he comes from, just know that he is from the Baltic parts of Europe.
He was known to paint only abstract paintings of death and demons, all paintings was unnamed.
The painting i can describe the most is a painting of giant skeleton statues placed on both side along a dark road with a single man with a touch walking the road in the distance.
Each skeleton statue was individual to the next, one was hooded, one holding a lamp, one folding its hands to a prayer etc etc.
Would be great if anyone who recognize this description could help me out.

According to a teacher at Rietveld Academy here in Amsterdam doing studies is 'kitsch', Even though I was applying for Graphic Design, she kept coming back to this, saying little about the conceptual design work I had. I was really put off by this attitude, even though I knew fully well they don't value figurative or classical academic studies anymore, I think it's bizarre to laugh at it this way. Especially since nothing noteworthy is said of my recent work ( the period I was actively drawing and studying classical Bargue plates and Richter's Anatomy and so on was 2011 and not much later, loads of digital sketches which one is quickly discriminated on ). Kitsch is understandable if your entire sketchbook has recurring actors and so on -- Audrey Hepburn I would call kitsch -- but with the purpose of learning skills that can be utilized later ( I classify them as studies, not actual work ) it's pretty damn curious to equate it to having Bob Ross paintings in your portfolio. Perhaps it was just bad presentation on my part which made her blow the drawing out of proportion, but I'm very apprehensive about the admission exams ( they did think that was worth it )
