100 Words, 100 Days: Day 81. On Art.

Art can be a polarising subject. The phrase “one man’s fish is another man’s fowl” comes to mind when I consider what is conventionally called modern art. Okay, grab a few tin cans (empty ones preferably), find a pole tall enough to stick them on. Throw some paint over the whole thing, then voila: someone comes along and buys it from you, sticks it in a museum and allows people to pay in to see it.

Great! All I need now is a few cans, a pole, some paint – and then I’m set up for life. Oh…and a rich friend.
