Browsing deviant art and looking at the front page of deviant art, I see there are so many talented artists producing images that are beautiful, highly skilled and incredibly detailed.
But when did art become so vacuous, and meaningless? There is so much fantasy and escapism. So much detachment from reality. Soft porn, dragons, and ponies and a reflection of a diseased society that is afraid to really look at itself.
Isn't art supposed to be a reflection of reality. Isn't it supposed to teach us something?
