    Yup.

    It is pretty obvious that nobody can force adult male bear to ''paint'' .... it will do it then it likes it. As it did.

    Well it looks like finger painting. For a bear that I don't think can even see colors like we can and paws like a pizza thats actually not bad. I've seen elephants paint and my mothers parakeet had a fondness for art.
    When a human does this its simply degrading to what art used to be.

    They sold by auction those ... got average level 2000 euros per one. The money went good use ... to that predator center were for example that bear lives.

    Modern "art" is indeed a kind of art - namely the art of making people seriously believe that some crap is "art".

    Let's take this for example:



    Some guy just put an urinal on the table and defined it as "art". And people believed it and put it in the museum. So this guy is indeed a kind of "artist" - he is able to make many (stupid) people believe that this crap is "art" and spend money in order to see it in the museum.
