Good art and bad art

The first question that comes to my mind is, is there anything called as good art and bad art? The art market is booming and everyone around seems to be interested in buying art. So many galleries promoting so many new works of art and giving a platform to new artists of the decade in such a scenario it is really difficult to say and understand what good art is and what bad art is.

Some say that it is purely personal and subjective on what defines art and thus what is good art and bad art. To spot a great painting or an artist, one needs to have a great knowledge of art over the years. Hence take an art expert along with you in case you are not well versed with art history and the kind of paintings that have been appreciated over the years. Try and visit as many art exhibitions as you can as this will help you to spot the painting you were looking for.

Some people still prefer to think that there is nothing called as good art and bad art and that it is all perception. The word art is a word that has its own meanings and is very subjective as well. They say that art is just art. It is a piece of creation that may be liked by some and not liked by others. You usually form your meaning out of the painting and it is how the painting makes the emotional connect with you is what matters. So you can decide and have your own definition for what you can call a good art and vice versa.
