"This is Art" (NFT+) by Richard F. Yates

[Felt pen and Sharpie on reclaimed cardboard. Approx. 4" x 6". This is also an NFT+, meaning that the first person to purchase the NFT will receive the PHYSICAL DRAWING, mailed directly to their door!] For those who think I'm just a silly prankster---you are CORRECT! Unfortunately, some jokes are both funny and TRUE! In this case, I'm borrowing from the art world's most famous chess player. The work I'm presenting is ART---despite its shortcomings, despite it's humble base materials, despite it's inane subject-matter---it is art because I say it is. I HAVE THE POWER!!!! You don't have to agree with me---doesn't matter. (And, jeeze, just look at that snake! That's some Dubuffet quality shit, right there!!!) Art is what artists do. Ergo: THIS IS ART. (If you think cardboard as a support medium removes this from consideration in the art world, please look up Picasso and some of them Zurich Dadas...) ENOUGH! I'm tired of arguing with myself. Buy this piece, and I'll send you the original. Or don't, and I'll keep it. I'm cool either way! It's always a party when funny pictures are involved! ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool) Read more
