Yes, I am such a cheapskate for putting out that old chestnut! But it is true certainly of China. It is now home to One Million Millionaires and 115 Billionaires. Not as many as America, but more than anywhere else on Earth. Why?
Seen all those stories about China in the news lately? That's why!
And do you see me complaining? Hell no. I love art just like everyone else. Hey I am even an artist too! And this starving (okay I am not really starving...) artist loves money too. Why deny it? People with money collect art. And art plus money equals success! I know lots of artists who paint to make money from it. (Art collectors step this way!) Art can reward on many levels...
Okay that just sounds so damn cheesy now.
So yes, I am not complaining or anything. Money and Art can go well together. I've seen that guy selling postcards outside the Sistine Chapel. So embrace the capitalistic side of yourself and love that wallet as much as that bag of art materials you lug around on your shoulder.
Yes that's me - the artist here in this tiny country of Singapore! No, don't pity me or lend me a dime! Just buy my art, especially if you are Chinese!
If that sounds cheesy... I can do better. There's this funny joke I heard. Goes something like...
A million millionaires and 115 Billionaires, who all happened to love art, walked into an art gallery...
