this is something ive thought about on several occasions… where does ones personal feelings come into play when it comes down to the personal feelings about an artist and their art?
I’ve not been in the art community as long as some but I’ve moved around enough to come across instances like this where you tend to have to ask yourself that question “what do i do with this?”
if i show you an amazing piece of art , and ask you if you like it and you say yes…
then inform you that the artist is in fact a listed pedophile…
how would you feel about the art then?
i think for most it becomes a weird kind of grey area, where you don’t want to like the art because you don’t like the idea of “supporting” that kind of person… however before you were aware of that information would it have been the same feeling?
granted this example is fairly extreme as worst case scenarios is the artist is just an asshole. of which is a lot easier to chew.
way i see it is… no artist is perfect. talent never guarantees a pristine persona. sometimes i feel its better to appreciate a piece of art you like because you like it… as opposed to disliking it on account of the artists personality. the art itself never did you an injustice… as a matter of fact you liked it. you just did not like the artists personality but why does that matter… by looking at their work you aren’t required to befriend them… you aren’t going to be betrothed by clicking the like button on their work.
so in the end… why does the artists personality affect their work beyond your own bias. in my opinion its a loss missing out on something you enjoy just because of something like that.
eh. what do i know?
^ I’m so late for this but I agree with everything he said.
Thank you so much for sharing your point of view.
((=/ Well, I WAS following her because I thought her art was interesting…but I’m not cool with suicide jokes. I lost a family member that way.))

Jimmy: -He left a frown- It’s rather unfortunate that I only have hours to stay this way, madame.
Francis: At least a to do list would help, non?
Oh… I’m sorry to hear that… -She nodded to Francis- Then lets have the best of these few hours then. Anything you want to do, or anywhere you want to go, specially?
Jimmy: Now that you mention it, there is a hidden treasure I saw when I were just a mere turtle.
-Raises her brows- Interesting…
Jimmy: Well I do can direct you for the map. From there, you’ll be able to go ahead do the rest, my good friends.
-Looks over to Francis, excited with a big grin as if she’s asking if he’s in for this. She wouldn’t mind a finding game herself- What are we waiting for then?
Francis: -He glances up to Mess- Of course.
Jimmy: So, we ready to go for this dashing adventure?
Always ready -big happy grins at Jimmy-
Jimmy: -He got up putting his cap on- Let’s go on then, mates! -He walked ahead out.
Francis:-Gets up and follows behind Jimmy excitedly-
-Gets up and try to catch up with them- Sooo what is this treasure like?
Jimmy: Accordin’ to stories, this man had a briefcase full of cash. He jumped out of the plane, but got lost in the forest. He found, however, a mine. He got trapped in the mine and never got out ever since.
Oh dear… poor guy… you didn’t happen to find any skeleton, do you?
