That's the most brilliant young artist of all time you're talking about - you should read the article by Jerry Saltz in Vulture, about his "brave new paintbrush". Nov. 20, 2012, 8:22 p.m.

I believe this guy represents everything that's wrong with contemporary art. He admits to basically not wanting to do anything that requires any skill at all, or any labor, and the "human" element in his work consists of him needing to pull paper out of a printer and damaging it in the process.

Well look, he's trying something new -- maybe it isn't "painting" but it might just be the discipline that winds up replacing it! Nov. 29, 2012, 11:28 p.m.
I hope not... and as far as I know, large color printers have been around for a long time - it would be different if he was making interesting images on the printer, but he's not, they're all kind of bland and decorative at best... Dec. 17, 2012, 4:05 p.m.
