Sean Pablo makes me think of the pretencious artsy assholes in the art school i'm at. They dont do shit or have any talent, they cant pick a pencil, then they just take some random pics with a polaroid and call that shit art. then they think they are at some next level of the art world when they are just coppycating what they see at thumblr. I'm so tired of seeing this in the art world, i dont want it in skateboarding too! Sean Pablo is not thinking outside of the box. He is not original by any means, he is copying every shitty artsy trend he think that is cool, but thats not cool, that's just cringeworthy. He is not even that good at skating goddamn it...

he might seem lame to us, but to other 17 year olds he's probably the most bad ass kid around. I wish i was that cool at 17 honestly.

Sk.A.T.A.N, maybe the problem is that you're in "art school" paying someone to teach you how to be creative while he's out everyday in the streets figuring it out. It may not be your cup of tea, may not rise to the level of art school cool but he already has a sizable audience who finds his work interesting - not too shabby for a seventeen year old. Maybe after you graduate we'll get a chance to see some of your flair too, really looking forward to it... did you come up with that edgy username in art school?

The ones who like his shit are the same people that dont say shitty art it's bad because they dont understand it and dont want to be misunderstood. I always see people who look at it and say "well, i dont know, i think it's nice" because they dont know how to disagree with the bandwaggon of the cool kids... Also he isnt that young! I see people with great talent at this age that do lots of cool and diferent stuff, but i agree that its the age that you copy your idols and want to be like them, but please stop pretending like he is so good and diferent from the rest, he isnt.

Also if you want to see some of my late work go to the Art Threat on the Whatever, i have some stuff there. It isn't something different but i don't pretend it to be.

look at any real photographer and they have concentrated bodies of work that deal with specific themes, etc... he just showed us a zine he made with all "greatest hits" unrelated images. thats cool he likes taking photos (who doesn't) but he will never be taken seriously in comparison to like alec soth or something. soft focus images of strangers in new york city? i doubt anybody who knows anything about photography will give that the time of day...

so because hes not a very talented photographer, he should just stop doing it? i agree with people saying that there is nothing original that hes doing, but what is so wrong with anything that he is doing? who cares if his stuff isnt unique or original or even that good? people arnt allowed to have hobbies if they arent good at them? if we keep getting videos of him talking about his "art", dont get mad at him, get mad the the people pointing a camera at him telling him to talk about his art. i doubt sean pablo is the one approaching cons and telling them to come over to his place and film him talking about his zines and t shirts he makes. it doesnt even sound like he takes it that seriously. my interpretation was that he just makes stuff because he wants to.

idk if this is aimed at me, im just confused as to why youre talking about someone's video parts as if theyre paintings or something.
i doubt this kid takes his skating as seriously as you do.

"I think it's pretty easy to differentiate yourself. You just have to think outside the box a little bit."

In all honesty, I like this kid.

Nothing wrong with a little constructive criticism.

not at all i said it's cool he likes taking photos. i never really thought about the aspect of the people at cons telling him to talk about about all that shit. i find his work boring but was more talking to the people who seemed envious of his "sucsess" or following or whatever. all though i guess that would only be from the exposure his work gets via cons, etc. pressuring talk about that instead of his 360's.

Well, you have a good point JB. I wasnt thinking that way! He can totally do the things he likes... But then, Cons, dont try to sell it as " OMG, he is so great, he does art stuff". Its like i liked to play soccer with my friends and my sponsor make a video telling i'm a professional soccer player...

Cons didn't make out that he was a professional photographer or artist at all. They were just showing his interests outside of skateboarding. You seem bummed that someone else is getting attention. But it's not a competition, there's room for you too. Do some cool stuff and make sure you're prolific and you might get noticed too.

Nothing in that video; or specifically your section are anywhere near Sean's level of skating.

Tobey, you are twice as delusional as sean pablo if you talk assuredly that you could have gotten on big companies with that footage. No matter what you were wearing. Not saying you dont rip, but sp is on another level.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.
