Madonna-Brilliant Artist, Now and Forever!
i finally got around to seeing exit through the gift shop recently. it was interesting how mention of the celebration artwork he created for m was edited amongst a conversation about his artistic integrity, authenticity. essentially many were calling him a farce. a scavenger. do you consider him a true artist? what does it mean to be one? is releasing product enough justification or is it an x factor? many have pondered the same about m. I think she chose him for those parallels.
Agreed. I do like a lot of his work, but then I understand the criticism. Is he a true artist? Is Madonna? I would say absolutely. Art is objective on every level. Is it less art because it could be commercial? I say no. It's a snobby, snotty and egomaniacal thought that if something is mainstream, it's not good. Yet I still understand the belittling of Brainwash. Juxtapose huh?
juxtapose, there's nothing to it!
I like his art however i really think the cover work for celebration could have been a lot better....
Love it! I miss living in LA. :(
