“The hipster represents the end of Western civilization – a culture lost in the superficiality of its past and unable to create any new meaning. Not only is it unsustainable, it is suicidal. While previous youth movements have challenged the dysfunction and decadence of their elders, today we have the “hipster” – a youth subculture that mirrors the doomed shallowness of mainstream society.”—Excellent and very honest article written on the decline of Western Cultural Society.
“The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists.. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.”—Bansky (via I saw this yesterday and I can’t remember where. Help.)

Vania Zouravliov is an artist I discovered browsing ffffound today. His work is absolutely brilliant! Apparently, as a child, he was something of a prodigy and had tv shows made about him before he was 13. Awesome.
