Banksy = Miley Cyrus
I have just been sitting here digesting the story of Banksy setting up a street side booth selling his artwork for $60 and no one really buying it. There are a lot of take aways from the situation, the main one being that the work is not worth $60 to the general public....
The reason that Banksy art sells for huge money when properly marketed is that it has built up as the "thing", propped up by an art market that is always looking for the next "thing". Of all the street art, he ended up as the anointed one. Is the work good, yeah, is it clever, OH YEAH, is the work challenging, not really. This sidewalk stunt is amusing and clever (very clever) but it's not really challenging authority. It is sort of making fun of his "value" in the art world, while in actuality, it is something done to continue building the myth. If he really wanted to be challenging, do it and never tell anyone but then you couldn't make a video and get talked about everywhere on the internet.
This is where Miley Cyrus comes in. Is Miley talented, yeah, are the tunes catchy, OH YEAH, is the work challenging, not really. It is just more grist for the radio. No real ground is being broken. She did a sexualized performance, appears in provocative outfits and talks about a "Movement" (watch the promos for her new MTV special). But it just an old trick dressed in the current clothes (for a failed attempt at this watch Katy Perry on this last SNL). All coldly calculated, uber funded and marketed to the millionth degree.
Two of a kind. I guess I can't complain, I draw my characters in the format of other entertainment properties so that a bit of their sheen might wear off on me. But I would like to think that if I did have access to that mega audience, I would try to not just be clever and manipulative, but would instead try to create something sincere and special, try to actually touch that audience.....
I couldn't agree more with you. Take a serious listen to today's music, then listen to songs decades old. They had rhythm, complicated arrangements, and most had lyrics that didn't repeat 45 times a song.
Face it, what ever the music industry puts money behind, the "sheeple" will follow.
Keep up what you're doing...

I was reading:
One of the articles the L.A. Times ran about Lou Reed yesterday, and it quoted him as saying something like one chord in a song is ideal; two chords is pushing it; and with three chords, you might as well be playing jazz.
And that right there, I realized, was why I never did anything more than shrug at his songs. There was never anything there for me...
I actually do like a number of Banksy pieces and they do actually move me.
Dan, I think you miss the point of the sidewalk sale. Banksy was actually making a self-effacing point that without the hype he's just another artist on the street - it was recorded to make/show the point.
I've been attracted to Banksy's work for a long time. I've seen a lot of his works. To compare Banksy's often socially poignant work with the Cyrus pop trash gives me the unfortunate sense that you cannot tell the difference between true art and commercial pop garbage.
And that is very disappointing to me.

Great information, i was searching of this kind of information, thank you very much for sharing with us. i also have some links to share norton.com/setup
I'm glad to see such relevant comments posted here, not! Though I do disagree about Lou Reed: many beautiful songs...
It's hard not to look at the whole Banksy phenomenon and not see it as 99% market manipulation by art sellers. I'd certainly rather have an uninhibited hour with Miley Cyrus.
