Deliberate Misunderstanding

The obvious is boring, yet effective.

The abstract is more exciting, yet potentially unlikeable. But those that do get it appreciate it far more.

Obscurity drives the artist to make things mostly for the niche. That niche then becomes responsible for legitimizing the artist.

When weird becomes popular and cool, creativity faces resistance. The artist gets distracted by fame and tries too hard, or just conforms to their own hype. When you’re unknown, you set your own expectations and create freely.

Reaping the benefits of anonymity while striving for some recognition manufactures the artist dilemma, one that is lost or won in the freedom of work.
