Lana Newstrom Creates Art You Need to Imagine

Lana Newstrom, an artist from New York, sells to collectors pieces of art that are invisible to human eyes. Her art is about imagination. Her studio is practically empty, but art lovers from around the world are visiting it these days, starring for hour at blank walls. As Lana explains on her empty website, “just because you can’t see anything, doesn’t mean I didn’t put hours of work into creating a particular piece”. 

This is “Sleeping Dog”, one of her invisible paintings (or sculptures, who the fuck knows!?):

Someone has accurately compared Lana’s artistic process with the old H. C. Andersen’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. What do you think? Is her art worth millions of dollars or not? Is it art, in the first place?
