Many times as an exaggeration on this site, I’ve used the term “adult finger painting” to describe the art made by talentless perpetual toddlers who are all grown up and infesting Brooklyn. I even once did a Fishing for Hipsters attempt on Craigslist saying there was a finger painting contest happening in McCarren Park for people 25 and up. These pseudo-creative types are opening gallery after art bar after gallery after art loft and its all full of shit. This so called ’scene’ is completely saturated and played out – just get the fuck out of Brooklyn already with this corny try-hard bullshit. Tell me, how is it possible for a dirty looking beardo or some granny dress wearing Zelda to be sitting in some make-shift gallery all day slurping on lattes and micro-brews with a few horrible pieces of art on the walls and still pay his/her gentrification store and apartment rent; also being able to afford over-priced organic food and vintage clothing?
“Bushcraft is a crafty group of artists who meet in Bushwick, Brooklyn to make art, eat, drink, have good conversation, and embark on occasional field trips.”
See they really are pioneers! They invented art, eating, drinking, socializing and going places – except they make it sound like they are in summer day camp. I really can’t take these people. Can you imagine about a decade or so ago someone telling you they know about this rilly rilly kewel place (anywhere in Brooklyn) where adults can fingerpaint together? Pussification at its finest.
