LOL at paying huge $$$ for a print of photo-realism. Or is there some sort of double irony that I'm missing?

Not until now...that's retarded. I figured his originals were huge bucks though. I buy original art when I'm moved to do so, but typically not prints of paintings, it's far too superficial at that point.

Edit: Here's one...$28K

Most artists with a formal education learn to draw and paint with perfect realism, then they move on to bigger and better things. There is just as much skill and a lot more creativity in the contemporary art that you dismiss.

Those oil paintings, while demonstrating technical skill and patients, are total crap. They are nothing more than a study in technique.
Lets put it another way. If those were photographs, they would be garbage. So why would they be fine art when copied perfectly in oil?

Not only that, but why bother with a print of a painting of a photograph? Why not just take the damn picture yourself? Sure, the guy has skillz, but it seems like he's doing it the wrong way...
