Before you judge an artist for his/her work, it’s good to remember that we all need money to survive. Getting paid for your creativity is both a boon and a curse: On one hand, you can do what you love but on the other hand, you have to ‘manufacture’ ideas like factory workers. The idea of ‘purity’ in art (i.e. art unaffected by commercial stuff) is noble but human beings are not perfect. Let’s celebrate artists who dedicate themselves to excellence but let’s not burden them with our obsession with perfection.
