babar has talent?




I am not really sure what to say about this, but I think I could definitely sell it in my gallery!

Does the elephant have an innate talent? Was he or she taught? Does it really matter? This is a discussion that human artists have with critics: are you a better artist because you have paid $100K for a degree or are you actually a more talented artist because you are self taught?

Regardless, this is rather impressive:

good question and one i've asked myself numerous times since i work with several "naive artists."

one doesn't negate the other i don't think. it's all working with the tool available and the real creative power is the brain.
