Ray Hutchins, a 66-year-old artist from Staffordshire, protests Chris Ofili's winning of the Turner Prize by placing a large heap of manure on the steps of the Tate Gallery in London along with a sign, reading "Modern Art is a Load of Bullsh*t". He also said that "A real artist who can paint should have won the Turner Prize." Hutchins states that while he disliked 1995 Turner Prize winner Damien Hirst's work, Ofili's work was the "last straw".
It's worth remembering that Beethoven was considered to have gone too far with his 3rd Symphony, Mahler got booed at the first hearing of some of his earlier Symphonies and T S Eliot's poem The Waste Land was considered as shocking in 1920 as Hirst's Cow in formalin was in the 1990s.Just because you "don't get it" does not make it invalid - it's how culture progresses, by breaking with tradition.
Talking about art and actually doing it are two entirely different things
I've done David a few times and believe me he is a work of art!!!
