the "art on skateboard decks" and "anime style girls with big eyes" are excellent additions.
can we also add the art world's overall fascination with street art to this list?
"R.I.P. Appreciation, and meaningful analysis in Art review. Honestly, what purpose does this article serve?"
That there are tons of effortless hacks and unoriginal copycats. Appreciation is one thing, but intellectualizing art (especially if its been done over and over)usually goes too far. But you can go ahead and appreciate anything you want ;)
Can birds and botanical illustrations be added to this list?
I don't know that I agree that people with animal heads belongs in the "crappy art trends" category. I'd say it's a timeless theme that resonates with people, therefore it belongs in the still enjoyable art trends category. Portland has a lot of art that is clearly responding to design trends- using birds being an obvious one. I see a lot of whales and octopuses on design blogs and in art as well. But despite the obvious trendiness I still find myself drawn to images of each, so what's the point in sneering?
Pinki, I'm pretty sure the purpose of this article is to out people who lack a sense of humor.
Haha, I think this article is spot on. The animal heads trend has been bugging me for years. I mean, Max Ernst and others were doing that in the 1920s. I like it, but now it's all just imitation work... I can see where people are upset by the article, but as an artist myself, I like to see innovation.

Matt you forgot cute anime style girls with big eyes and vampire fangs being slightly naughty AKA every other "artist" in Juxtapoz.....
Damnit, I JUST got into lisa hanawalt's illos of people with animal heads. And now I find out they're not cool anymore.
@m3hl If you're going to do away with art on skateboard decks, I think you also have to scrap art on vinyl records. Those two go hand in hand.
you lost me when you got to pizza. but yeah on the people with animal heads. especially people in victorian clothing with animal heads. i actually like that kind of thing but i think we could all use a break from it for a while. kind of like how i support a moratorium on leonard cohen's hallelujah appearing on movie soundtracks. we all know it's an awesome song...it's fuckin' enough already. give it a decade or something, alright?
R.I.P. Appreciation, and meaningful analysis in Art review. Honestly, what purpose does this article serve?
As pretentious this article is by nature... I pretty much agree. But you forgot one of the big hitters, art on skateboard decks.
Also, fuck bike art.
Wow !!!!! Like Wal-mart !!!!
Blah,blah,blah.The covers are getting un-unique too.Doesn't seem like the art scene is doing very much these days.Nothing NEW !!!! Where has creativity gone.Same old shit.No wonder nobody comments on this page.Whats the new cover?A south park pseudo inspired [rip-off] picture?
Dali did it best.
Figures someone falling off the roof onto their head is art.
I like Jenene and all the folks at Disject. Their work is both outstanding and a wonderful addition to the suffering arts community. Both of their programming strengths in this year marriage should turn out some top shows. Congratulations to both ends!
I just have one question that varies a bit....wouldn't it have made more sense to have 2 curators assigned to 6 months each?...or would this make it seem schizophrenic? Just a thought.
It’s not every day we hear someone from Flint, MI but the homie impressed us with this one.
Good art has to make you feel something.
