MOBA

although it is an endless source of entertainment…

i hope my art never ends up in the museum of bad art.

the {mostly} unknown artists, no doubt, paint with passion…

but according to the moba site ~ their aim is: 

“devoted to the upliftment of spectacularly bad art”

{so there you go}

the best part is the wryly comical commentary on each piece…

 

 

Sunday on the Pot With George
sunday

Acrylic on canvas by Unknown
22″ x 37″

“Can the swirling steam melt away the huge weight of George’s corporate responsibilities? This pointillist piece is curious for meticulous attention to fine detail, such as the stitching around the edge of the towel, in contrast to the almost careless disregard for the subject’s feet.”

Think Again
thinkagain

Acrylic on canvas by Unknown
Acquired by Scott Wilson from trash

“This disturbing work “makes an offer you can’t refuse”. The chilling, matter-of-fact manner in which the subject presents the severed head to us is a poignant reminder of just how numb we have become. The understated violence implicit in the scene speaks volumes on our own desensitization, our society’s reflexive use of force, and the artist’s inability to deal with the hindquarters of the animal.”

Dog

Acrylic on canvas by Unknown
Donated by Elizabeth and Sorn Poeckle, Copenhagen, Denmark

“A remarkable fusion of ski resort and wolf puppy — stoical in his yellow-eyed silence, frozen beneath the ice-capped peak, Dog elequently [sic] challenges the viewer to rexamine old concepts of landscape.”

On The Shore At Sunset

Oil on Artboard by Anonymous

“Two bathers’ frantic calls for help go unnoticed as another life and death drama unfolds between the
identically colored crab and cat. The artist added real sand into the paint to give the beach a
realistic texture and to indicate that the surf was dangerously rough.”
