No, my mediocre friend. I'm not parading old ideas. I am talking about new ideas. Ideas that are obviously threatening to you.

The reason we, the artists, will win and you, the illustrators, the makers of kitsch, the promoters of kitsch, will lose is because of one simple idea:

Chaos is greater than an illusion...

You're an illusionist and we are agents of chaos. We are not the deceivers.

What you don't seem to understand is art always evuentually correlates with science. Now you can resort to insults all you want. But one thing is for sure, I'm not the one being a fool. The garbage you espouse does nothing to address technology. Now who is unconnected?

And one thing you simply cannot comprehend apparently is that fine art is about the how...not the what.

By the way, your pretentiousness should take a look at Friedrich Nietzche. His concept of the ubermensch was of the person who rises above mediocrity, above the values of the masses (that's you) and spreads enlightenment. That's what we artists do...we spread enlightenment. You however, are an agent of decadence. People like you corrupt everything you touch.

You remind me of this curator I know of who literally markets himself as one "who spreads light where there is darkness", it's even on his website, and he is probably one of the worst cut-throats I've met.

Btw, that was really an eye sore. Did you really need to rape everyone's mind with that awful stuff you just posted?

Oh don't worry, we the artists will be toppling your decadent empire soon. And there really isn't anything you can do to stop it. It's inevitable. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.

I really don't care whether or not you (JCAI) like graffiti or street art. But you clearly don't know much about it. If you're going to criticize, do it from a position of knowledge, not self-regarding ignorance. And, please, stop parading century-old cliches as though they are profound truths you came up with only yesterday.

As for the "art world," sure it's corrupt. Is the Pope Catholic? What else is new? And that art world is not in the least threatened by your abstractions, even with the added electronics and crystals. When City Hall hung your paintings it was not striking a brave blow for aesthetic freedom, much less poking a stick in the eye of the Mayor's oligarchic backers.

Your prose is out there floating on a cloud of its own, blissfully unconnected either to the world or even to your art. As far as I can tell, it's pure unadulterated nonsense, albeit a bit clumsy.
