Creative NZ is defending its decision to provide a $40,000 grant but said last night it was unaware of the installation's "precise content" when the grant was signed off.

Excellent.

I am an artist - I paint. This kind of crap saddens me. It's not art. It's an excuse to fart-ass about and waste good money.

Real Artists do art when starving in hovels. Then they die poor and unrecognised and their stuff sells for millions 100's of years later.

he's not an artist.

On the contrary pctech, this guy is an artist, a BS artist and he has relieved the taxpayers of $40,000, some of which is yours and some of which is mine.

I would recommend he do a Landscape of the bottom of Cook Strait. If he needs help I can think of a few other bludgers he can have as assistants. :mad:

"We should never be forced to take a job. If you're forced to take a job it's a punishment. If a job's a punishment then society must be a prison."

Yes indeed. The welfare state works!

I clearly remember making a post in this thread. Why has it been removed?

Was I offensive? Did I break forum rules?

If mods are going around deleting posts, at least it would be nice to know why...

What a f**king joke.

I'm sure we can all agree that we don't like working our asses off for our weekly pay packets. But why should we pay for this guy to sit on his ass, because he doesn't like 'the idea of work'.

Glad he's lost his benefit, hope he can't claim on ACC, or anything else. I hope he loses his house, his stuff, his car, etc etc. Then maybe he'll see things like he should, like it or not, work and earn money, or fail at life.

@cato Normally there's an icon beside the thread title if it has deleted posts.

The Joke is on us.
You cant blame the guy for taking the 40K
The fault lies with the moron that OKed the grant and the idiots that fund Creative NZ?

I think the idea was to encourage and promote art. Dumb idea though - just gives every halfwit and bum the idea to slop paint around and call themselves artists.
