5 Reasons Why You Should Never Buy Original Art

Just say no to original art!

Just say no to original art!

1. Your walls will look so much better bare. How can you show off that lovely eggshell finish if you cover your walls in art?

2. Art is just too much money. That overly sentimental generic print from Wal-Mart will do much better for you.

3. Artists are supposed to starve. You’ll ruin their image and their creativity if you start buying from them.

4. You like owning exactly the same art as everyone else. Standing out from the crowd and buying something unique would be stressful and bad for your blood pressure. Your doctor has advised against it.

5. Art is scary. You don’t know what it means, or what you’re supposed to think, and what if you bought the wrong kind of art? Oh the horror! Its just too frightening to even contemplate. What would the neighbours say?

(Does this post make a terrible, cynical, sarcastic person? Really? Oh dear. Oops.)
