Do dead people inherently make better art?

I think so.

They don't necessarily make better art but they do make rarer art. Because determining what is art, let alone what art is better then another, is truly a subjective thing it can be almost impossible to ever say any art is better then any other, however what everyone can agree on is how rare art is, this is a tangible thing. Once an artist dies the amount of their art that exists will never increase, only stay the same or even decrease and this makes their art inherently more rare.

Thus if you find a dead artist, whose art some people like, their art is going to be inherently more valuable and thus arguably more desirable then the art of some one still living and creating new art even if just as many people like that persons art as the art of the dead person.

I think dead people are art, they do not specifically make it.

If you read the EULA, there is a no zombie thread clause. It is imperative that you follow that rule otherwise a zombie outbreak could occur and we are certainly not equipped to handle said outbreak. Our only means of protection is: ;zagar

This is just a friendly word or caution. :lol:

Better? Not really.
More rare and valuable? Definitely.
