Default Artistic Statement?

Well since we're a diverse community, I'd thought I'd post this and ask you all your views on the subject.

Artist Starves Dog to Death

It is an immensely controversial thing to do, but it also has people question their morals and force them to see their own hypocrisy about starving animals/homeless/human ethics, and also forces people to look at other cultures' perspectives, but thats just my opinion- I want to hear yours!

I'm all for art and expression but starving a dog is just cruel.

That's cruel and disgusting. I can't believe people like that exist in this world. Is that to imply you could do anything with out any regard for its ethical implications, say it was an artistic statement, and that makes it OK?

Is so bad that he couldn't pick up a paint brush that he had to kill a dog? He should of just straved himself.

I joined a facebook group protesting against this very subject


You cant use 'artistic freedom' as a way to rationalize this. It's simply cruel and disgusting.

What Guillermo Habacuc Vargas has done in the name of art (starving and killing the dog) is absolutely insane.

"He is a criminally insane sadist and enjoys inflicting prolonged suffering upon his innocent victims. He is a danger to all of society, as it is well-documented that those with the capacity to intentionally cause harm to an animal have the same capacity to harm humans. To state that this animal would have died eventually of natural causes is unjustifiable and defies logical, rational thought." - The letter sample from "Artist" starves a dog to death as a work of art | AMP: Artists' Meeting Place & Resource Collective

I agree with this. That makes me ill.

This is ridiculous... you can't justify starving an animal in the name of art, no matter how far your head is up your arse.

it's one thing to starve yourself. it's another to deny food to a dependent living being.

i effing hate idealists who pass themselves off as artists because they're both often seen as social outcasts. the person who starved a dog was NOT an artist.
