    A good art I'll say is one that is appealing to the eyes, but we all have different taste, so every art is good.

    The eye of the beholder... especially when it comes to abstract art!

    There is no good or bad art. What may be beautiful in ones eyes may not in the others. For art is a field using the skills or techniques of craft. It lies in the soul of the creator.

    As far it is art could not be bad.
    If you mean bad influence it is a differnt story.
    For some people bad is good and upside down.

    I will agree with rotl, everythings depends on the viewer. He has the last word on every piece of art!

    I doubt that there can be a definitive answer to this, and you probably need to be more specific to which art discipline you're referring.
    On a general level I would say there is great art, Leonardo, Michael Angelo, Turner, Constable, Shakespeare; then slightly more middle of the road - competent but not great, and then a lot of mediocre art.
    Except for writing, where there is great, good, and bad, the visual arts tend not to have any category that can be labelled, bad, well, perhaps, except for a pile a of bricks with a description of how to set them out in a slab, that just isn't art, as far as I'm concerned, but a lot would disagree.

    I don't think there is good or bad art, one person will generally like a specific art piece more than the person beside him/her and vice versa. Just depends on what you as an individual likes and where the art will be placed.

    Like everyone here agrees, Art has no good or bad. The question of what is art has been in question for a long time. As to good or bad, there is no answer to it. More of the answer lies in the artist himself or herself, where the creation process should be valued more, the artist should define good or bad. Cheer!

    It all depends on what one sees in the art. Depends on how they interpret it. In my opinion, no art is bad art.

    There is no good or bad art. It's all based on the taste of an artist and his/her followers. Whether it is emotional, religious, political
