The Shocking Truth About Contemporary Art Education.

You’ve been told so many times by your teachers and parents that getting good grades in school can help you to get into a better college. And having a good college education will help you to get a better job, which in turn will result in a higher salary and quality of life.

Contemporary Art Bubble

Contemporary Art Bubble – Video Presentation

Is contemporary art a “real deal” or another bubble destined to burst? Inflated art prices will continue to rise as long as art buyers are willing to pay stupid money for stupid artworks.

There is a reason why new artists cannot draw. Their teachers have graduated a decade ago; they are not able to teach what they have not learned from their teachers who graduated two decades ago.

Fine art is not lost as long as someone has skills to create artworks that are beautiful and serve the purpose of inspiring and portraying all good things human kind has. It gives a real sense of satisfaction that fine art is very much alive. It is under attack and speculation by contemporary art market manipulators. They are trying to persuade us, by immense price tags, that only revolting and shocking art is to be called art. It is fated to change.
