It's saying how much skill this artist has, making a really good miniscule painting inside a really good normal sized painting. Hence the "Incredible".

I believe it's showing the incredible detail of the other paintings within the painting itself.

Funny how art today is more or less defined (in most cases) as a way of expression, but those paintings from the old times that you say are amazing? Are made for money, back when art wasn't look down upon. Today, art graduates can't even find a job, yet back then, artists were rich as ****.

Talented? There are various talented artists today that are talented. Plus, art isn't about just drawing or painting pictures. There's a reason why artists like Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock were successful. Because they did something no one as dared do or even think about doing before. Plus, consider why they do it. The things they do were considered shocking at that time. Just like how Damien Hirst's dead shark in a tank is still shocking today.

This is exactly why people look down upon today's art and artists. It's like artists are slowly being wiped out, as creativity is drained from people. "Don't do art because you'll never be an artist. Don't do music because you'll never become a musician." What an industrial society we still live in, it's like we're still living in the industrial revolution. The arts is deemed unnecessary and inferior to languages, sciences and mathematics. Because we are shaping people to work in boring offices.

And you say today there is no talent. Rather, the talent is overshadowed by everything else because of the need to make money and retire with a happy life. Well, if that is the case, the future is going to be filled with really boring, old millionaires who did what they did, not because they like it, rather because it's the fastest way to earning money. Where's the happiness in that?

Sorry for the long rant. Just tired of today's society where people look down upon arts.

If you can't find a job as an artist then you are a ******* moron.
A degree in graphic design could land you a job designing commercial advertisements, the gaming industry, etc.
Standard art majors can go for various things, one of which is landscaping. (not like houses but like parks or fancy businesses or school, where the organization of plants and various other things turns the area into a work of art.

As for standalone artist with no degree, YOU AREN'T LOOKING HARD ENOUGH. I have personally worked for various local mom and pop stores painting their signs/walls. I have no degree and I've even done one billboard commission (the restaurant in question had their own billboard by the highway) for almost three grand.

You know how real artists make a living? They create a portfolio of their work, and then they ADVERTISE themselves, since most work for an artist is in advertising. They walk into a business and tell the owner how that they will create an advertisement for the business that will be so visually appealing that people WANT to go there.

If you can't find work as an artist, then you have no talent. However, in all honesty, talent, when it comes to art, is just a fancy word to say that the artist has spent SO MUCH TIME refining their skills that to the eyes of every average person with no 'talent' they are gifted. You don't have to be a famous artist to get work as one.

Take Bob Ross for example!! [url deleted] this guy was in the Air Force, developed quick painting so that he could sell paintings for some money on the side! He eventually started selling so many that he left the Air Force. You don't just start at the top, art is like the rest of the world. There are no freebies so man the **** up. If you can't take the heat get your ass out tha kitchen.

Nobody appreciated the artists back then. Vincent van Gogh lived under poor circumstances, Leonardo da Vinci made almost all his money doing part-time jobs and Michelangelo starved at times. Art graduates today can't get a job because they chose a line of studying that relies on working with art, which means painting or something, which is mostly freelance.

Art today is all about abstract expression, which is retarded as hell. Back in the old days, it was a tool to express and capture reality.

Yeah Van Gogh ate paint because he said **** spending my millions on real food. You're a ******* moron. Most of the "back in the day" artists we appreciate to day weren't even noticed back then because art was ridiculed.

I'm not a cultural man, nor will I ever claim to be one, but I will say that these kinds of paintings always strike me as baffling compared to what we display today.
Modern Art is just.. ew. What happened to striking paintings such as these? We still enjoy them, why stop making them?

Even in architecture, everything's got to be slick and smooth and as boring as possible.
I assume it's to improve functionality and provide bigger space while retaining an somewhat 'edgy', by lack of a better word, status.

Personally, I'd like to see a barok inspired skyscraper. I do know there's quite a few impressive buildings out there that aplly that sort of style but dammit, they're old.
We don't see enough playing with the old while integrating the new.
You want to impress others with your building? Construct a 18th century inspired office building.

Emanates class like no other.

I get it. The two domes are balls and the obelisk are a dick.
It's genetalia.
Or maybe it's a *********, and the domes are breasts.
