Art of Concept
Great Art! Yes! Creative, modern, cool…TALENT!
I don’t have words for this…………
Gorgeous! It is most definitely art work!
Wow, these are awesome!
Just WOW @ the person who said this isn’t art. I’m going to guess you don’t think comic book artists don’t make art either nor do architects or engineers. Art isn’t just about sculptures and oil on canvas. It’s about evoking a feeling when you view the completed work. If it evokes one, it’s art. If it’s just pretty, it’s craftsmanship.

These “extravagant dresses” are typical characters of Carnival in Brazil. In the 3rd picture are three Pierrots (from italian Commedia dell’Arte). The 5th picture is a Flagship Girl with the flag of Brazil on the dress, the flag is always on hand at the School of Samba that the girl is. In the 7th figure is a percussionist with two ‘pandeiros’ (tambourines). At the 9th is a girl with ‘19h century’ fantasy in a car parade. At the 12th is a Baiana (woman from Bahia State), women who sell food of African origin in the city of Salvador.
In the 14th one is an Passista (samba dancer girl). At the 15th is a representation of the Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. In the 19 th (after the figure of the books) is a girl dressed as Carmen Miranda.
Unbelievable. I’m still second guessing if that is actually made out of paper. The gradient in the cloth is fantastic! Is that REALLY PAPER?
Amazing art! Amazing representation of the culture of my country! Very well explained by Augusto.

@gert, even things that are “just pretty” is art.
when it comes down to it if an person calls himself an artist and he makes something he calls art, then it is art and everything else is just opinion.
