I’m not a huge fan of ugly art, personally. I don’t have a set philosophy behind it as of yet or anything like that, I just took a lot of contemporary art history classes in college where ugly art was considered, for lack of a better word, the most virtuous of art. I already didn’t like it before, but after that, I just got REALLY sick of it.
