I don't really believe in "experts" when it comes to art, when they themselves know how to paint for real, then I'll take their opinion seriously.

You can only understand it when you see the works in a proper setting like a serious gallery.
A lot of mathematics and colour sense is involved.

Consider the paintings in the OP the Britney Spears of painting.
