Gifting art snobs 

So avant-garde, so postmodern ... so minimalistic. If you know someone who spouts these higher-than-thou art league terms every single time the family gathers, show off your own exquisitely good taste for fine art. Buy a gift of a T-shirt or an authentic work of art from badart.com. Painted by an unknown artist, ‘’Bad Hands” (pictured) is indescribably ugly and totally available for holiday purchasing. Underneath the image of this painting, the Web site even affectionately offers an explanation for the bunk work: “You have to admire this artist’s cheek! He jumps right in and declares, I cannot paint hands! … these ham hocks twist slightly in your face, undiverted by any real kind of background …”

To ease any guilt associated with this offering, understand that you are supporting the efforts of one hopelessly untalented artist: This piece costs $3,050. Check out a wide variety of works on www.badart.com.
