The Pessimistic Artist Manifesto

Art is made from money. Art is a business! Yet, we do not want to conform into the boring life of moneymaking in the traditional sense, but how will you make art without supplies? Who will buy your art? How will they see it? Art is a privilege of the Museums, Galleries, and sadly the rich. It does belong to banks & fancy investors. Art is food. You can’t eat it but it feeds you. Money to create art will feed you. Art is not cheap and is not available to everybody.

Art soothes pain?
Art wakes up sleepers?
Art fights against war & stupidity?
Art is inventive, art is a challenge, and art is a tough field.
Art is a business.

Be realistic. You just want to be famous and have money to make art.

About

Jane Tam has moved to a different domain. Please forward your links to http://janetam.com. Jane is a 21 year old Photography student placed in Syracuse University but originally from New York City. She enjoys all sorts of music but you can classify her as the stereotypical indie kid. Slightly offensive and bitter sometimes, this blog is a place to vent frustrations but also a blog to display current photo/art projects as well as encourage new talent from music to art to films; basically whatever tickles Jane's fancy.
