In my opinion, art is very limited because most of the artists are following the traditional art exposure of the past (museums,galleries, cultural centers). Even a well-known artist will earn a few thousands to see himself in a newspaper or magazine because he created a prototype project that took place throughout an exhibition in his town or state. Most of the installations, paintings, or sculpture, have been made with a different shape or material, but the idea still remains the same, as it's very common for artists to follow an artistic "wave" or a movement in order to be accepted from the public to sell his/her creations. The personality also lacks of personal knowledge, ideas, as most of the artworld is driven by incorrect political and scientific ideas taken from media, books, institutions, which serve more likely for propaganda purposes.
.There are many other ways for an artist to show his work, such as with an exhibition in the company that he's working for. An artifact that is relevant with the workplace can promote the artist onto his company, and two jobs will support each other.- artists usually haven't enough money, and being rich doesn't mean that he will have success. Exhibiting in a company that has a partial fine art interest, will make the artist innovative and reputable in the company and can get hired in a better position. Partially affiliated, because if the company occupies only arts, then the positions will be chosen by others via advertisements.
My point is, why someone has to be famous when the possibilities of getting rich are 0,0001%? Is it necessary to pay thousands for an exhibition only because the artist wants to communicate? And why not exhibiting in a cafeteria! At any rate, everyone today has became an artist because of the political propaganda and fashion. And who is the first artist that people will communicate between million of artists or vice versa? Is it worth it? And if he communicates what is the next scope. Why you don't write a book and write also your fantasies! This is a good communication as well.
Regarding the discussion of what is art, is much more than we see. It starts like a prayer or a meditation if you will, but a prayer without a mudra, no words. The mind stops working, the reality that you see every day brakes in pieces like a puzzle. The lights are closing and you see only the light that helped you to delve in through the artistic process. Then the mind feels ecstacy and needs no exhibitions and no fame. ART is to break the 'reality' that you observe and see how it looks likes to the newborn. Art is a spiritual path to avoid the 'blind checks' of the instinct ( eosforos-lucifer ), in order to be accepted in the eternal mysteries. If the artist fails within the path, then can be only an artist who sells and the artist who sells is blind and cannot have the chance to see the light again! Therefore, there is a level that the artist has to take the big decision- to leave this world behind! This calling occurs to every artist, but only a handful of them accepting the invitation.
