Toddler’s ‘Modern Art’ Paintings Sell For Thousands

Toddler’s ‘Modern Art’ Paintings Sell For Thousands

Authored by Steve Watson via,

Paintings by a 2-year-old boy from Germany are selling for up to $7000, with buyers comparing them to Picasso.

The Times reports that Laurent Schwarz’s portraits of elephants, horses and dinosaurs “would not look out of place in modern art galleries in Munich or Berlin.”

The boy’s mother uploaded some photos of the paintings to social media, and soon enough ‘collectors’ were bidding thousands of Euros for them at Munich’s biggest art fair, ART MUC.

The report also notes that “A New York gallery has contacted the family offering to put Laurent’s work on display.”

His mother states “They’re abstracts and what’s unusual is how he integrates discernible figures into them, which people often mention to us and which makes them so popular,”

Yeah ok. Good lad, but they do just kinda look more like random paint slapping by a toddler:

Do the people buying these paintings know that they are purchasing the dawbings of a child who cannot talk yet?

This story is entirely plausible because much of so called ‘modern art’ frankly looks like it has been made by toddlers.

As far as paintings by kindergarteners go, Laurent Schwarz’s are quite good. They’re nice and colourful and the boy’s parents say they are putting all the money made from them into a savings account for him.

Fair enough.

But there are fully grown ‘artists’ out there purposefully trying to paint and make ‘art’ like toddlers in an effort to cash in on this trend.

Their  ‘work’ is even being slapped up in public and revered in a weird ritual of pretence that it isn’t completely fuck ugly.

Such ‘works’ are only being revered by sections of society and bought for thousands because of the atrocities against art by adults that have been placed on a pedestal as somehow ‘deep and meaningful’ when in reality they have no meaning, sometimes literally:

If you don’t engage in the charade, prepare to be cast out as ‘unsophisticated’:

In many cases this stuff is just paint smeared on a canvas, or in some cases it is literally trash thrown on the floor.

In some cases it’s trash thrown on the floor in an effort to ruin actual proper art:
