ARTIST OF THE MONTH
December 2016 is
For my FB’s friends and followers:
I’ve recently been blocked again for publishing my painting, this time during one month (today unblocked again), with the threat of the definitive cancel of my account (as lamentably has already happened to other figurative painters).
That’s why I’m going to have this page closed to public during some days, to modify those images that could incite to the FB censors to cancel and delete it permanently.
My apologies in advance, for removing and modifying some images of my works, which unfortunately will also cause the loss of all your kind comments and “likes”.
In my future new “censored” posts, I’ll add links to their complete uncensored images in my website, or in a blog specifically created for that.
It is very sad that great artists are being frequently harassed by ignorant censors, reported by haters and trolls on Facebook. I can only support his decision – many others have taken this step already to protect themselves and their art from those too ignorant to see the difference.
Please visit the website of DINO VALLS to enjoy his great art without interference from ignorant Facebook censors.
This is called “THE RAT CATCHER OF HAMLIN” by Mark Bradford – a appropriate title I think, fitting the contemporary art market. It was sold for close to $4.7 million at Phillips.
I think Mark Bradford had his tongue firmly in his cheek, and was laughing all the way to the bank.
It appears to follow a historical line of put-ons and spoofs that to this day the market is taking seriously, such as Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain a 100 years ago…….
or Piero Manzoni’s Merda d’artista in 1961…..
In other words, if you must see the best that Modern Art has to offer, you must visit the Tate.
And while Saatchi had first dibs on Hirst’s Shark, the Tate nevertheless proudly presents a piece that also came out of Damien Hirst’s animal art factory: Mother and Child Divided ……
Inside Damien Hirst’s macabre ‘art’ factory: Huge site has its own guards… and building just for pickling dead animals
Fast forward to artnetNews to see how bizarre the market is today:
There are only a handful of artists that dominate the market.
Is this the best of our culture that we can show future generations?
