    Do you think painting will become fashionable again or is art and the future of art all about installations and shock factor?

      Painting will never go away. It is only one genre, it may not be as popular as it once was but trends fluctuate all the time. Also art is a form of expression and people will always need to express themselves. Think about books and authors. Books are old old school and they are still around and profitable.

      There is no other art form that can produce a single image with which a person can live a whole life and still find mystery. Needs to be an original though!

    As I am student starting out in my art career, I just worry that painting is not fashionable any more. Painting is what love and do best. This shift makes me think that I may not be able to sell my work in the future.
    I'm not into these installations, although I do appreciate any artists work. This is because I now have an understanding how artists think and I can also appreciate the amount of work that goes into peoples creations.
    Thank you for your comments.

    I don't think Art should be about what's in fashion.  If you like to paint, go for it.

      The greatest persuasive tool in Human history for the last 30,000 years is art. Ever since Andy Whorehaul started the print world of art, a lot art has been watered down. Yet mankind curiosity for one picture to makes a 1000 words will continue....
