2. To me, these "grand concept" artists are gimmicky and a bit ridiculous
One can get similar tools to Rembrandt's for about $30. Costs a bit more to get similar tools to Christo's, etc. I'm not saying the latter stuff is worthless, but it seems less tied to artistic ability than ability to secure funds to realize your hare-brained scheme. :D
