I'd been painting rats for three years before someone said "that's a clever anagram of art" and I had to pretend I'd known that all along.
The Art we look at is made by only a select few. A small group create, promote, purchase, exhibit and decide the success of Art. Only a few hundred people in the world have any real say. When you go to an Art gallery you are simply a tourist looking at the trophy cabinet of a few millionaires...
Art is not like other culture because its success is not made by its audience. The public fill concert halls and cinemas every day, we read novels by the millions, and buy records by the billions. 'We the people' affect the making and quality of most of our culture, but not our art.
If you want someone to be ignored, then build a life-size bronze statue of them and stick it in the middle of town.
Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better looking place.
We dont need any more heroes; we just need someone to take out the recycling.
Sometimes I feel so sick at the state of the world I cant even finish my second apple pie.
We cant do anything to change the world until capitalism crumbles. In the meantime we should all go shopping to console ourselves.
