You're on the DA front page, browsing as much as you can. You try to soak in all the different varieties of great art from photography to paintings, the colors and skills that many of the different artists are pleasing and impressive for the most part.
That's when you run into it.
A black monolithic square box that almost takes up all your monitor space when you look at it. It's huge, unappealing, artistic only to a hardcore Andy Warhol, and it has a message it want to share with you. A "cry" for help that screams like a teenager who watches too much angsty anime and listens to too much Linkin Park and Evanescence. You wonder who the hell made this ugly travesty and how it got to the TOP of the most popular in the last eight hours category.
You click to the artist's gallery: THEY'RE EVERYWHERE, And all of them have immense amounts of views and likes. Comments are not allowed on any of them. Those who speak their mind and dislike this account are blocked.
This atrocity is known as Deviantart'secrets
This is really something that should be posted on Tumblr, not an ART site. They might say that "anything" can be art (a cop out argument made by the "smypathetic" defenders of this site.) but These MEMES made in Paint and Wordprocessor under five minutes are getting more attention than an artist who sweats and bleeds over his art for hours on end.
So at the very least these guys can say something significant, right? Some uplifting advice? An embarrassing story that would actually constitute as an actual secret?
Nah, here's what you get!
"nobuddy undderstands me!!1!!" "I iz SOOO suicidall." "my faimelly hatez me!!" So on and so forth.... So what DO you do with something that only spews negativity into what people could already call a very negative minded art community?
