Celebrating Pranksy

Imagine you are a 17 year old kid strolling through the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. You see some very impressive works and this inspires you to create a piece of your very own. So, you take off your fake glasses and you proudly display them on the ground for all to enjoy. What happens next? People actually start to gather around the fake display and analyze it's meaning.

This is the story of young art enthusiast, TJ Khayatan. He and his friends had a great time taking photos of those who fell for his prank.[1] While some may see this prank as one making fun of pretentious art patrons, it can be interpreted another way. Searching for beauty in small places can make every day of your life an adventure. I am sure the designer of those specks appreciates the attention they received. There is always something new to discover and we should all remember to have some fun along the way.

This should also be a reminder to all artists to not take yourself too seriously and be BOLD. There is bound to be an audience for anything you can dream to create. While we are on the subject, remember to submit your bold, new avant garde creation to our artGLOSS Issue 1.2 - OTHER. You know we will eat it right up!

Have fun!

CrEATively Yours,
