We don’t have different stories because we don’t buy them. The arts as a market does not like competition. Don’t do art for the money and don’t make money and call it art. Banksys didn’t invent graffiti, but a thousand Banksys would be penniless. A thousand Mark Wahlberg’s can’t ask for 20 million a movie. Thousand of performers are broke, so was Van Gogh. Dickens. MC Hammer. Edgar Allen Poe. We worry for markets so the wealthy can maintain their lifestyle as connoisseur while the artist stands in the street, and bleeds. Source: Johnson, S. (1750) (ed.)
