I love modern and contemporary art. I get very angry when people scoff at or make of of either of these art forms. They are art, and they are beautiful in my opinion.
And beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. If they don't like a particular work, they don't have to look at it. I am a contemporary artist and I get many compliments on my works.
I'm just glad to know that there are others who share my love for modern art. It truly is a milestone in the art world and should be praised rather than laughed at.
