From The Readers: Uninspired?

4 Mar


I received this photo & question from a reader in my email box:

Calling Out Etsy,
Since you brought up The Black Apple; there has been much talk here & there about the sameness in art these days. If you see my picture example which is 24 different shops, there is almost no variety. I feel it’s sad that people are willing to compensate their true artistic vision to try and profit off of copying another popular artists’ style.

Interesting thought.
I would like to put this forth as a discussion but want to make clear that I am not bashing any artist by presenting this topic.. I think it’s a good discussion if artists are being true to themselves or making what they know is popular on Etsy.

Does there need to be more variety in art? Do you think it looks the same? Discuss.
