I think this decade is the decade where artist are ONLY famous not rich.

I think this decade is the decade where artist are ONLY famous not rich.It used to be the other way around.In times past you could become fairly financially comfortable as a artist and not have to be “famous” I see so many well known underground artist that are hardly scraping by because of this shitty economy and because of all visual stimuli being “free” these days.Porn,art and even magazines and music are free because of the internet.I don’t know how bands and artist really survive anymore.I’m very lucky in the aspect that my chosen medium is 3 dimensional .Put painters and photographers seem to be suffering the most.Why will somebody buy art in that form when they can just look at it on a screen or even steal it and print it out.And books and magazines are struggling so you can’t even assume you can sit on your paintings or drawings to publish a book of it anymore.People don’t value the soul of a piece of art anymore.A true piece of art is not just what you see with your eyes,but what you feel with your heart when you are looking at the original.
