I came upon this in yesterday’s edition of the New York Times. It’s interesting to see how these dire economic times are affecting us artist’s. Interestingly enough, it appears to be business as usual for the majority of us given we have far too often had to live on meagre/modest means whilst having to stay afloat, remain relevant and yet continue to make bold artistic statements.

A few of the lucky ones amongst us have caught a break here and there and lived off of our art. I, for the most part believe great works of art have come out of our most trying moments as human beings. I can’t wait to see, hear, feel what the effects of this global economic downturn would have on the creative minds amongst us all. Come rain or shine, I’ll continue to wail, rejoice and moan the blues as I feel and hear it within.

    hi. i totally agree that the best art often comes from some sort of suffering. pain needs a release. in some small way i have reveled in the economic downturn, only because we will surely find a different kind of wealth – artistic, creative. good times. cheers to you.
