Today we have Lush‘s fifth comic in a 10-part series. Remember folks, Shepard Fairey and Bansky are the exceptions and even they worked their asses off for years. As Woody Guthrie said, “if you ain’t got the do re mi, folks, you ain’t got the do re mi.” What do you think? – RJ

    He’s right. Banksy and Shepard Fairey are good communicants doing a
    lot of art products beside the work in the street and somehow they’re
    playing with globalized codes of communication (politic or underground
    propaganda).
    So it’s not suprising they increase consequently their
    visibility because of capitalism which is recovering all the cultural
    specificities of each country which start to follow its only economical
    leads.
    Beside that to take the example of France, only 5 % of all
    the French artists are living from their artwork sales. The real problem
    is because of the art market speculation, most of French mass and
    specialized press stays focused on those 5 %, avoiding to consider the
    whole reality of actual art.
    And, guess what, it happend that most
    of the art done without-trying-to-make-it-sealable that I discover is
    more interesting in 99 % of cases, because it’s about exeprimentations
    dealing with society and social inputs regarding particular territories.
    In
    consumer society, people (eventualy art collectors also) are only
    buying stuffs they already know or have heard, because this consuming
    gesture is making them feel secured (the tricky part of our society of
    control).
    So the first degree of subversion nowadays seems to be for
    me not to produced any rare sealable objects or at least to be sure that
    anyone could access those, by sharing the source code or by basing the
    relationship with the viewer on direct exeprience.

    It’s an expensive affliction. It can’t be cured it can only be managed.
