What's with this street art/money correlation? Like every piece has a dollar sign in it. A clue to the true message of this fudge or what?

I meant all of it, not just snooty. Every street artist. Some do it ironically, or claim to I'm sure, but it's like an obsession. The real irony is that they make money from Art that tells us money is evil or unimportant. It's just a little hypocritical. Like, if you got a full time job and you wanna draw some pictures saying that working for money sucks, sure. But don't tell me money sucks in your art that makes you money. And certainly don't drymounting wink at me while you do it. That one was specifically for snooty.

Eh comparing stik to this is apples and oranges IMO. I know some people think zomg stik sucks it's just stick figures...6 lines isn't art blah blah but at least his work is aesthetically pleasing and stik actually has something to say. This fudge is a drymounting joke.

Can't believe my daughter's painting was removed. The best thing this thread had :(

Also, babbs, why would you post gazillion photos of the same fudge? Literally the same image. Post a pic or two and that is it. These are the redundancies that should be moderated, IMO, and not the luls. Babbs is a troll and I believe the reason he creates these threads are for the sole purpose - luls!

Fully support the quote above my post. I already suggested it once or twice before too :pint:
