why, oh why, singapore…?
what is “van gogh” doing at this void deck : http://www.razor.tv/site/servlet/segment/main/news/66180.html
“” because… it is NOT van gogh.
i love you, my country, Singapore. but you really can be such a disgrace many times, with regards to the celebration of originality art and design. For generations (and more to come), the children in Singapore are being taught that endorsing ANYTHING famous in ANY WAYS possible, including being “inspired by” (which, come on, let’s be real, is really “COPIED from”) is nothing but good.
Buying a painting? – is the painter famous?
Buying a bag? – is it a famous international brand?
Painting the void deck? – there’s nothing better than using a famous artist’s work.
Singing at the NDP? – the best option would be to plagiarize a commercial hit song.
SO.GOD.DAMN.PROUD.OF.YOU. and very very saddened….
