Do you believe memes are apart of art?
Since the internet has a lot of people often very opinionated you can form your own thoughts similar to how this article gave both povs.
In my own opinion memes are undoubtedly forms of art as you need to think and come up with something funny interesting and appealing to a niche minority but more so life imitates art and vice versa.
This picture is a great example of how a point in time of our lives will be cemented for a long time due to memes and being portrayed past just technological means.
Similar to more mainstream versions of art there are a variety of options when creating memes as its based on the communities you are apart of as well as context and sense of humor.
This might be more your style or maybe you prefer the nuked style.
Regardless of your opinion our meme preference I have to say memes are definitely art pieces regardless of effort needed or style because they make me laugh and are better than that banana with duct tape.
