Artists: break every fucking rule. Formulae has homogenized the arts. Everything looks, feels, sounds bland.
If someone tells you not to do something, then ignore them. Rewrite the rules. Don't internalize institutional restrictions.
Write your own fucking rules. Institutionalized rules don't preserve art; they destroy it. Those who shun institutions revolutionize art.
We need revolutionaries and new artistic paradigms. Art is boring, homogeneous, predictable, tiresome. Give us something new. Fuck rules.
Art was stuck in the birth canal for two centuries until the pre-impressionists and impressionists shattered the grip of the Academy.
Literature was tired and boring until the modernists rewrote the rules.
Film was exhausting until the auteurs broke the mold.
Artists, quit pandering to institutions. Quit selling your individuality for acceptance.
This is the only life you'll ever live. Be yourself. Quit following tired paradigms and create new ones.
Art is an expression of yourself, not the preservation of rules propagated by people with no imagination. The world is yours to create.
