I've very rarely seen a work of art that I wanted to give a second glance.

I don't give a fuck how tortured the artist was, or angry, or weird. If what's there isn't of interest from looking at it, then it's a fail for me.

As I've said before, most people think something must be intrinsically great, if it's worth wads of money.
Missing the point that art is worth wads of money only because it's fashionable, and because of the collecting bug that affects humans.

Rare stamps are worth mega-bucks. It doesn't make them wonderful art. They are just fashionable and rare, and obsessed people want to collect them.

The Mona Lisa is a dreary daub. It doesn't even look like it did when it was made. The value is in the collectable rareness.
While there is a market for shit, there will be assholes to supply it.

They're very Soviet looking.

what's interesting is the Ukrainian painter indulging in Soviet art AND degenerate art in the same, soviet dominated, period.

Precisely, within the restrictions that were set, they still found ways to be creative and chutzpahic.

Sadly the guy can't really paint (or draw - more to the point).

Sneaking in anti-propaganda images, phrases or even musical references was quite common in Soviet era creative circles and actually not too difficult to do as the thugs that controlled the population were ignorant peasants for the most part. There had been an incredible rush of creativity for a short period after the revolution, when people really believed that the revolution would free everyone to be what they wanted to be. Then of course the forces of totalitarianism started to get a hold of and strangle that particular flowering.

I wrote an essay on this stuff when I was at Art college - well before there were any signs of the USSR collapsing of course.

Why do you think he cannot paint? This is a caricature.
