The Man Who Drank Watercolor
(Out of the Safe Asylum of Art)

nowadays,
in 
fine art,
there are more artists
than
flowers
blossoming
in the spring time,
and more than stars
in van Gogh’s famous painting Starry Night.

“modern” artists are like robotic clones
that automatically do same shit all the time,
with
zero
imagination.

as a result,
art is in mass production
for sale
in
cheap prints
either online
or at Walmart
for
only
one purpose
of meeting the need of people’s
who wanna decorate their blank walls.

whenever a creative person thinks out of the box,
he
must be
considered insane.
not only would he challenge the social norms
but also would he refuse to follow the game ruled by elites in the field.

let’s look at the man,
who
didn’t paint
but drank watercolor.
you would say he is utterly insane
I myself believe
he is
a genius,
the best conceptual artist
who dared paint an abstract in his stomach.

please tell me
that
you think
which one is really insane?
-those artists
who hide themselves in the safe asylum of art
and do dame shit
on daily
basis?
-or the one
who creates something which has ever been done so far?
