Art for Our Unhealthy Times

 Six or seven years ago, prankster artist Banksy messed around with a painting by Damien Hirst to create this collaborative work. Today the painting serves as a pointed commentary on our Covid 19 crisis. Art is more than just a financial asset.

Nevertheless, at Sotheby’s October 28th auction of contemporary art, the Banksy-Hirst creation is expected to sell for two or three million.

Hmmm, where should I hang that in my home?

It's clever, but it's really just virtue signaling, it's not art.

Doesn't mean the greater fools won't invest in it, of course.
