Contemporary art: ultimate success recipe

Banksy’s latest stunt was to sell his signed (!) paintings at $60 each during a whole day in New York, anonymously, from a pop-up stall. This earned him a bit over $400 (still not bad for a street sale if you’re not a big name, right?). Some of the paintings on offer were worth over $200,000.

Those of us who love Banksy’s art and/or money could now extract and export their envy. If only liquified envy could sell!

Two days before the stunt, a Ukrainian TV channel (“Ukraina”) invited Miss Natural Breasts to their talk show and its viewership skyrocketed.

Oh, and in case you missed Banksy news, here is the video of the event.

STALL-TIGHT-private

There’s a guy closer to the end of the reel who bought 4 paintings to liven up empty walls in his new flat in Chicago. His collection is now worth $500 000 to $750 000. I wonder if he is aware of the fact, for it alone could infuse colour in his life, even if the walls stay empty.

WHAT CAN THESE TWO UNRELATED FACTS TELL US ABOUT ART?

Contemporary art wants to first shock us and then make us think about an issue that the author thought important to ponder on.

Tits of this size shock us and make us dream our own personalised dreams. At least, this is what happens to the male part of the audience.

IF A CONTEMPORARY ARTIST SENDS US DREAMING AFTER THE INITIAL SHOCK (INVOLUNTARY DREAMING AT THE DEEP AND “PRIMITIVE” LEVEL), AND CAN DO IT WITHOUT USING IMAGERY OF FEMALE BREASTS, (S)HE WOULD BE A NEW PICASSO.

This is the ultimate recipe.

I know some of my art-loving readers may start hating me if I don’t post the link to the TV show. It was a good show, with a lot of respect towards the girl, but people of feminist persuasion may start feeling dizzy. I’m just sayin’. Oh, it is in Russian, no subtitles, and the lady appears closer to the end of the show.

      The show was about people with an unusual trait. THere was a 2.02 m tall girl with incredibly long neck as well, a 6 yo boy with 4 cm long eye-lashes and this lady of 25 years, 50 kg weight, and natural breasts of the mind-boggling proportion )

    I suppose that ‘big boobs’ stands also for fetuses, genitals, bodily fluids, soiled bed linen, marinated animals and similar means of contemporary artistic expression, right? Are you implying that contemporary artist should actually learn to DRAW?!

      I am afraid that’s exactly what I am saying. I know it is better to be a homophobic anti-feminist nowadays than think along these dangerous lines. Asking artists to draw is inexusable.
