Too often when we talk about art, we talk about money. Art never makes headlines faster than when a piece sells for millions. In my view, this commercialization of art is skewing our perspective of why we express ourselves through this medium in the first place.

Young artists of today want to be the next Banksy. Not for his impact, but for his price tag.

This is made worse when auction houses hype art pieces with outrageous prices. David Hockney’s piece below, Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures), just sold for a record $90 million. Is this what art is about?

Think about it.
@MaryEl Unfortunately, for many people art is about money. Many view it as an asset class in itself. Something to store value rather than emotion.
