Personally Speaking: JAY Z “Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film”

JAY Z's "Picasso Baby" behind-the-scenes

“Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.” — Pablo Picasso

This is perfect for early morning inspiration and a few tears of joy. Seeing Andres Serrano, an “art misfit” which I highlighted in my print magazine many years ago, Marilyn Minter, Marina and so many more, just reaffirmed that my taste has always been ‘a great taste’. With a power like his, he is able to deliver a message that I (and many others like me) have been trying to deliver for a long time.

I am an art student who was dumped off after college with nowhere to work, be or create. So, I created my own path. As you can imagine, this penetrates me differently. Respectfully, there’re names of artists at the end of the video for you to research. Recognition is scarce, so in his own way, he is giving back to the world of “misfits”. I’ve seen a lot of you talking about how he and his comrades have “ruined” it for the world of fine and performance art. Well, you are wrong. He just gave it a new appreciation. Stop complaining and just keep doing your part, so you can, too. I know I will. Time is going.
