Oh my. Well, inspiring emotion is the artist's endeavor is it not?
Quite so.."It is not the job of the artist to give the audience what the audience wants. If the audience knew what they needed, then they wouldn't be the audience they would be the artists. It is the job of artists to give the audience what they need." Alan Moore.The picture was a bit of a birthday gift from a very good friend and has it's tongue firmly in it's cheek!
What if the artist is not really an artist but just an asshole? Who gets to decide? It's complicated.
