Art was once described to me as anything that gives you pleasure. Be it music, writing, or a painting. All very subjective I suppose but for me I derive no sensory pleasure whatsoever in the above example. One person's floor is another person's ceiling yada, yada...

I highly recommend recommemd Exit Through the Gift Shop for a fascinating take by Banksy on the contemporary art world. Orson Wells' F for Fake is also pretty mind blowing.
