I’ve been wrestling with this my whole career as an artist. There are times where the pressure is pretty huge to create for the masses. The thing is, if that is your intent, it rarely works. If you try to please everybody, you rarely end up pleasing anybody, least of all yourself. Perhaps we should consider these words from Andy Warhol, who once said:
“Don’t think about making art. Just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”
Love his work or hate it, those are words to live by!
