Purpose: Art is at its best when it is available to all, not just business and museums who can afford to buy it.
The Why Cheap Art? Manifesto
PEOPLE have been THINKING too long that ART is a PRIVILEGE of the MUSEUMS and the RICH. ART IS NOT BUSINESS!
It does not belong to banks and fancy investors
ART IS FOOD. You can’t EAT it BUT it FEEDS you.
ART has to be CHEAP and available to EVERYBODY.
It needs to be EVERYWHERE because it is the INSIDE of the WORLD.
ART SOOTHES PAIN!
Art was up sleepers!
ART FIGHTS AGAINST WAR AND STUPIDITY!
ART SINGS HALLELUJA!
ART IS FOR KITCHENS!
ART IS LIKE GOOD BREAD!
Art is like green trees!
Art is like white clouds in blue sky!
ART IS CHEAP!
