I did say this, and I stand by it! Advertising really gets my goat sometimes, it’s just so unnecessary. If my street pictures are vandalism (and now, suddenly, art) why isn’t a rubbish ad for toothpaste?
Mind you, when I see ads for stuff I like I don’t mind. A nice big picture of a shed, for instance.
The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists.
Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.
