Warning, this is not a feel good message!!
There are no feel good pictures to look at either!
So, you're thinking of becoming an artist and have a dream!
Maybe you're already an artist and you want to see your name in lights!
Whatever your position is at the moment, i almost guarantee most of you reading this have been wondering why so few artists experience any real measure of success.
It's not too hard to figure out. It's simply the pyramid effect in all its glory!
The next big thing (think art star/trend) is carefully orchestrated and managed in order to create maximum market exposure/demand for the product. It's no different for music, films, books or luxury brand products. The controllers know that no one really needs these things so they must continually generate desire/demand in consumers in order to ... sell!!
Art is in a constant state of flux and always facing devaluation because it has now joined the globalised world commodity production system!
So, the elites have to constantly prop art up with special events like art fairs and celebrity auctions to keep its "special" nature and value at the forefront of the public mind!
In order to keep commanding the $$$ millions for art objects, they employ a pyramid structure of events and organisations to keep everybody busy and hopeful all the while conspiring to manipulate consumer desire and purchase of art!
Art is valuable but the prices demanded today are all about greed, not real value and much of the art is clever fraud perpetrated against an increasingly naive, dumbed down public!
Sadly, to a large degree, art has become entertainment and life has become a movie with the manipulation of reality in this elite matrix of control!
Unfortunately, people believe too easily what they're told without question and so the commercial art wheel goes round and round and round in an absurd spiral with secret wheeling and dealing and backroom scheming pushing prices higher and ever higher!
They are masters of inversion and perversion and have relegated artists to the bottom instead of the top where they should be as creators. We now live in a world where black is white, evil is good, wrong is right and that is why corruption rules everywhere and justice is constantly perverted. Criminal elites are ruining society and the world with their wickedness and art has been subverted along with the rest! Everything is inverted in order to create chaos, usurp greater control and destroy all absolute values!
Anyone can see the pyramid with one all seeing eye in many music videos, films and visual productions. This represents the eye of Lucifer, the god they worship, (no joke) they are very religious and worship Satan, the god of money! It's even on the masonic American dollar bill! This symbol is paraded blatantly by the elites in plain sight everywhere these days and most people are blind to its meaning!
These are the facts so you might as well accept it. Unless you're willing to sell your soul you don't stand a chance of joining the art glitterati. Don't think that what you're seeing in galleries is so brilliant and original either, much of it is old stuff/ideas being re-hashed and re-contextualised in what has become a tedious cycle of fashion and entertainment. Most of it is pseudo art camouflaged as serious and deep "high art" supported by its own abstruse philosophical rationale, designed to bamboozle and confuse the average art punter and essentially keep them in thrall to the mystery of empty art.
Fame in any worldly arena is controlled; sports, music, films, dance, theatre, whatever, it's all controlled by big business. Many gifted artists will remain unseen/undiscovered and never get a chance in this diabolical system of control because they're not willing to sell their souls to it. They are the real art heroes in my opinion and you can read about their often miserable, short lives in art history!
This same system will try to make money out of them after they die though! They'll be marketed by culture vultures as the geniuses who were somehow undiscovered in their lifetimes, (liars! they were rejected.) The only artists outside mainstream gallery support who can afford to keep funding themselves are employed by schools and museums, think; curator, teacher, assistant, professor etc., think privilege. These artists are also toeing an official line though, think academic art. The elites invented it, dry and empty as it is!
No one gets to climb the ladder unless they beg and crawl and suck up to those in power at the top of the pyramid. If they've prostrated themselves enough before the controllers and curried enough favour they might be invited in but not before they know an artist is controllable. It is all about influence and control!
Don't think so? Here is a very short list of famous artists who sold their souls for fame and success and received accolades, titles and wealth from the masters they serve.
Antony Gormley OBE freemason, Anish Kapoor CBE freemason, Richard Long CBE freemason, Christian Boltanski possible freemason? Damien Hirst possible freemason? David Hockney OM CH RA freemason, Lucian Freud OM CH freemason.
These people have unlimited support from financial backers like the Rothschild and Rockefeller families who control world banking, corporate business, global organisations like the UN, WHO, IOC, IMF, World Bank and institutions planning social control like Tavistock, Trilateral Commission, Bilderbergers, Council on Foreign Relations and Club of Rome among others.
The majority of artists outside the system are waiters or drivers or gardeners, right? Is this because they're not intelligent enough? No, the system shuts them out in order to retain a condition of scarcity and exclusivity. Art star careers are groomed, milked, then killed off to make way for younger blood and new trends!
It's all about product and money and endless propagation of secular ideologies!
Art, any kind of art, is being used as part of their plan for socio-cultural control. The lesson of art's power over people hasn't been lost on the elite and they have been co-opting all cultural creation for their own nefarious ends especially during the 20th century. The messages in and behind the artwork are seminal for the invention of a new narrative/philosophy based on atheistic humanism.
The chosen artists are always used, (they are complicit in the exchange of services for fame and success) to develop and extend this covert and subversive narrative and their artistic sensibility is funnelled into the elite system of mind control and mass cultural education programs via state and private school systems.
You might be thinking, what? Well, check it out for yourself. All the media companies including publishers are controlled by the Jesuits. Hard to believe, right? Well, now you know who has written all the school textbooks and deceived generations of children with false, doctored histories and pseudo science. Their satanic Kabbalist doctrine has permeated all schools of thought resulting in world deception by the editing out of all truth in mainstream media!!
People can't access truth easily anymore so they are easily duped into believing lies like evolution, global warming and overpopulation and made to believe/accept/conform! The same effect has happened within the discourse of art and culture.
In simple terms, the elites control the art stage/market and they pick the players!
If you don't get picked you don't play, it's as simple as that!
The elite art canon is what you see illustrated in the art history books and that is decided by the elite system. What about the hundreds of thousands of artists that will never be mentioned or their work seen in the major art books and publications?
Right now all around the world millions of artists are toiling in studios hoping to gain recognition and sell their work so they can continue to support themselves and further develop their skills and vision. Naturally, some are more gifted than others!
Nevertheless, probably 98% will never rise to the top or to any place of noteworthiness because either they are judged not talented enough, not connected, non-conformable and more than likely to be ignored by an art system/business fraught with nepotism and sycophantry.
Recently, i had a run in with a "prof" from a university art department who is also a notable artist. It is clear that this person has enjoyed too much privilege and success from too young an age and from inflated self importance and sense of entitlement has developed a hostile and condescending attitude toward anyone who doesn't conform to his views. When i enjoined him to dialogue with me via FB on a subject, he instead chose to attack and insult me personally with abusive language and then erased the thread and unfriended me in order to dispose of any evidence after realising that others had validated my remarks. I fear for the young students who remain targets of his vindictive character and unacademic attitude! This is the political correctness elites use (art industry executives and inner circle artists) to stifle or silence dissent and truth. They really hate logical discourse and absolute truth
Elites like this man broach disagreement from no-one. They are cowards and bullies using positions of power and influence to defend and maintain systems of privilege and control for themselves. In such manner elites have shaped the current world system into its present violent and chaotic state! They love war and have been behind all of them.
Just imagine what the world could have been like without their interference!
The varied aesthetic nature of art makes it a personal commodity par excellence and buyers want to see and experience it in the flesh! Digital images just don't cut the mustard when buyers are being asked to part with big bucks in "faith!" So, selling art on the internet sight unseen will always be an awkward experience.
There are ways of building personal networks using social media but attracting new customers is difficult and time consuming. Short of an artist starting their own gallery it's an uphill battle to do it alone. It's a full time job creating excellent art let alone marketing it, which is, in itself also a full time job!
It doesn't matter how great you think you or your art are, without connections and exposure success is just an illusion! The elites know your reality toiling away down there at the bottom of the pyramid but the truth is they only cast someone a lifeline when they know that person will be totally compliant (gullible) to their agenda! They don't want free thinkers, only stooges that do as they're told and follow the party (academic) line to the end, without question.
There are no favours done for anyone so don't wait around hoping for it!
The system is democratic and all artists have an equal chance at success.
Here's a sobering thought for you to ponder. These elites who control art are capitalistic communists and believe in a 2 tier system of control ... you/us and them! These are the same people who financed the 1917 Bolshevik communist revolution in Russia, Nazism and Hitler's rise to power during the 1930's and Mao Tse Tung and the Chinese communist revolution in 1949.
They also planned and started WW1, WW2 and the present war on terror which is WW3 and I could go on but their crimes against humanity are endless. They've murdered hundreds of millions of innocent people across the plane with wilful intent and impunity in order to eradicate the educated middle class, gentry or bourgeoisie which always pose opposition to their plans for dictatorship and control.
Take time and do the research, it's all documented and true!
They do the choosing, not you. Still feeling hopeful about your plans?
Youthful idealism and fantasies aside, the real world is unkind and the elites are vicious control freaks wanting a one world system of slaves and masters. Artists are just creatives to be used to facilitate and implement their agenda worldwide, wittingly or not, and often in the form of propaganda, in as short a time frame as possible! They will stop at nothing to realise their plan and they are getting very close to reaching their objective of one world government!
You're probably feeling depressed and discouraged at this point but everything written here happens to be the sad truth.
Everything is co-opted into the elites' system so remember, if you ever do get invited in you've been co-opted too and the day that your perceived usefulness ends they'll discard you as if you were trash!
My question to you is this. Is it worth it?
To the shadow elites, art is just another commodity, and artists, just a means to an end, useful tools, just a part of their "business!"
Even so, art remains in and of itself, a beautiful thing in a nasty world!
