Ive often wondered this myself. Its not like people being brilliant at art is dwindling either. If anything, the work people can produce these days is absolutely stunning. (mostly talking about realism and lifelike drawings/paintings) and instead we get abstract or splash/splatter nonsense on a canvas instead? The hilarious part of it is when it looks like you just threw all your own paintbrushes at the canvas to create a mess, then have the audacity to pretend the "piece" represents some deep meaningful nonsense.
