What is good art?

I study art, and my kind of art is fantasy art and anime...stuff like that! But i have been told time and time again that that is not art! So what is good art?

Good point.... I don't call that art either. It doesn't take any skill...how could you be proud of it?

Art is being misunderstood. You can hold a simple piece of paper, yet if you convince people they don't see art when you do because you are simply misunderstood, people will flock and say its a masterpiece to end all masterpieces!

Being an artist myself The only answer I can supply is art is in the eye of the beholder.  I prefer to do landscapes and seascapes, though I do enjoy anime as well! I have never had anyone tell me that my artwork is not art. I guess it is because most people are afraind to argue with me! :wink:

Adel is right. Art is in the eye of the beholder.
Anime is art, in my opinion, but others don't think so.
I don't think that most modern (AKA idiot) art is art (I mean, trash bags strewn about an empty room!), but others do.

There Cap'n I must agree with you I don't find trash bags very artistic either but who am I to force my opinion on anyone else!
