I think I speak for everyone here when I say that art is irredeemably rubbish.

No-one likes or understands art but they pretend to get it on dates to the Tate Modern so they can pull at some overpriced bar on the Southbank afterwards. God knows I have, and I’m a famously good barometer for all human behaviour.

To put it less provocatively, nothing beats the sublime beauty of nature or even better, when nature takes a hold of man-made structures.

With that in mind, here’s a good few examples of accidental art being better than real art… obviously this is subjective.

Snow settling on the earth between a brick pavement

Bubbles inside a shampoo bottle

Reflection of a patterned window of a cat

A chip on a car windscreen that looks like a bird

Snow and ice blasted by the wind on a fence

Frost on a wooden floor

Ice freezing like a topographic map.

Swirls on a log

A sunset reflected in a cracked mirror

Moss growing in a spilt bike seat

A green landscape captured through a mud-splattered window

Oranges through a greenhouse window

Paint forming the shape of a volcano

A scuff on a wall that looks like a snowy town

This one actually made me emotional somehow…

Plaid shadows in Scotland

Christmas lights shining through the snow

The peeling bark on a gum tree

Spilled water being stretched into a city skyline

The way a tree snapped

Unmixed paint
