12 Times Awesome Art Happened By Accident

Published 8 years ago

Art always finds a way and we don’t necessarily have any say in it. Take a look at these accidental strokes of brilliance for example. If you saw them in a museum then you’d probably think they were the work of some masterly and highly-skilled artist. But they’re not. They’re accidents, and they’re all the better for it.

Our friends at Bored Panda have compiled a list of these accidents on a first glance, and pieces of art on the second. Making us wonder, how much of the amazing art we see in galleries is deliberate, and how much happened purely by chance.

Did something like this ever happen to you? If so, don’t forget to tell us in the comments!
