THE TRUE SPIRIT OF ART




Anglia Square, Norwich. There's been more public art activity going on of late. I love it - from spraying to print cartoons.

For me, this is Art - every bit as much as art found in a gallery. Yes, it can last just a moment but unlike Damien Hirst's diamond studded gold skull, this 'throw away' art is forever in real hearts and minds.

Hirst's art is purely speculation, like the Price of Gold, the use of Gold. This is the 'Divide' which will kill off Hirst's work over the next decade: hearts, hands and minds versus the silly marketing ideas of the super rich.
