NYC Art Formula

February 2, 2018

What’s makes great art in NYC? For most trendy results follow these basic rules.

1. Got to be big. Pompous and inflated is good. If it takes up a complete room, better.
2. Has to be generic surrealism, or dada, 100 years after that art genre was relevant. But the art media has to pretend its fresh, today, and now, not a reflection of two world wars!
3. Make sure the art is incomprehensible. Then when people ask you the artist what it means, you can be smug like they don’t get it, but you do.
4. Keep the art a secret between these 3: rich patron, gallery owner, and artist. The point is to scam the patron. Pretend only you and he can share the secret of why the art is worth such an inflated price. You are in the know!
5. Never consider any art that is useful such as, book illustrations, comic book artists, cartoon art, online art, fashion illustrations, digital art, graffiti and street art, poster/flyer art, architectural illustrations, etc.
6. Do everything you can to block the new art ideas of the art revolution sweeping the country, or any of it’s progressive ideas in any other arts.
