I've personally only started enjoying abstract art recently, although my mother's an artist and she used to drag me to all these abstract art galleries as a kid and tried her best to explain it to me. However, so-called paintings with a black circle on a white canvas, to me, are not art. Art should be something that nobody else can repeat with perfection, because you created it. Lately though, I've been into Art Nouveau and Brian Froud a whole lot..
In litterature, I absolutely despise poor writing skills. I hate possibly good storylines being botched because the author writes like a 15 year old. Pretensiousness is sometimes fun, like Jane Austen novels. They're mostly so shallow and written so importantly that it makes them an amusing read before bedtime.
