I have a new life hero.

I'm not an art expert at all, so I just found out about Cy Twombly. He lived from 1928 through 2011 and his work is apparently highly coveted.

Wikipedia described his style as follows, and I think they're accurate: "Twombly soon developed a technique of gestural drawing that was characterized by thin white lines on a dark canvas that appear to be scratched onto the surface."

This piece of his ("Untitled") sold in 2015 for $70.5 million.



Here are some other example of his work:





I work hard. I try to succeed. But man, this guy had it down. No one has ever been as successful at conquering life as Cy Twombly. He figured out how to make a living doing this. Nothing that anyone else can ever do is going to impress me as much as that.

$70.5 million, huh? My toddler does very similar work. I'll sell you a canvas for half that.

Did he sell any of his shit while he was still alive?

I know Jackson Pollock stuff sells at a mint and all he did was splatter paint all over the canvas willy-nilly, but I don't think he ever saw a dime when he was alive.

Modern art is often more about the story and background these days than the actual execution.

No shit. Somehow these dipshits thought it was appropriate to charge $29,000 a month for an apartment that had the following "tag" by Basquiat:



I know New York real estate prices are insane, what the ****?

I'm trying to figure that out, but I'm not seeing anything. However, he apparently won awards during his lifetime, which would indicate that he was selling work. And he sure traveled a lot, which would either indicate a good income or family money. His father was a pro baseball player, so maybe there was some income there, but it seems like he was a paid professional artist.

Here's more on why we should all be investing in Twombly.

Here's another nice piece that auctioned for $3,135,000.

Again, my toddler can make you something similar for half the cost. He'll use five colors, too. AND he'll be able to name them all and count them, too.

People can make fun of modern art but in my opinion it's performance art that truly is the biggest clown show.



Have fun with this guy:
