James Georgopoulos

I should have been an artist. Wait.. i’m young, it’s probably not too late. Check out this “art” by LA based James Georgopoulos:

Profound purpose statement:

“Guns of Cinema” is a fearless compilation of iconic cinematic gun images. These works carry a theme that confronts controversy, questioning what makes this object inspirational – the same object that has the ability to protect and take away freedoms or the power to alter history and threaten or destroy lives.

LOL yea.. pretty boilerplate.

So as you can see, James Georgopoulos’ “art” amounts to taking pictures of prop guns and putting them in front of high contrast solid color backgrounds.  He then enlarges the pictures and gets prints made that are several feet across, and through that becomes rich. This guy is a genius… *slow clap*

I’ve been to a handful of famous art museums, and there is definitely crap like this that any joker can do.  On the other end of the spectrum there are the incredibly complex/skilled pieces; I have a lot of respect for those those artists.

Thoughts?
