Do you buy art? You can tell a lot about a person based upon the answer you get from this question. The responses range from a fanatical yes to actually no answer at all as the person gets up and moves quickly away.
Are you into art? People can have many interests, but I believe an interest in art defines people. If you answered yes, more than likely you are an individual. You enjoy expressing yourself. You are a trend setter. You are unique and you want the items you purchase to be fresh and original. You enjoy the exhaustive hours of finding just what you want and what nobody else has. When it comes to art, you relate to what you buy. You take the time to understand the artist and their work. You know that what you buy will get noticed and be the topic of conversations. Art is an extension of you. It’s who you are. You’re interesting.
If you’re not into art, you should be. Seriously, who doesn’t want to be interesting? I know… it’s hard to be unique. It takes a lot of time and energy to be different. Unfortunately, whether it’s because of a lack of time, energy, knowledge or interest you resort to good enough. Not great, not unique, but ok. Maybe you don’t understand art or are afraid of it or maybe you just don’t care. But even the most style challenged individual realizes they at least need something to hang on their walls. So what do you do? Do you follow the path of least resistance? Maybe your home or apartment came fully furnished, or maybe you spent 15 minutes picking out art after spending hours picking out your furniture. If you’re not into art you probably don’t remember where it came from or why you bought it. Somehow it just ended up on your wall. Oh well, maybe nobody will know the difference.
