Is art dead?

Scharfstein places an argument in his book about the originality of art. Because of western art and its influence on most other countries, art has undergone a change where everything seems related and not original. He quotes "everything that could be done with a brush has already been done" How is it that we overcome monotony? Are we starting to witness the end of art altogether?

Let me know what you believe! :)

  1. I don't believe we are, we are beginning to see the birth of new branches and ways to view certain things. We may have brushed the surface with what we consider "original; however, isn't that why we place the term avant-garde on things because they are new and interesting to us??? Is this wrong?
