Reading about the shabby treatment of art, art education and the artist in the developed world which many of us in the developing world looked up to as even a good example of what society should do about art is saddening. Art and its ancillaries in the developing world is a no-no. You must have lost it to want to become an artist or live as one. Those who” make it” in the economic sphere looked down on art and artists as nobodies. However when stressed up, they listen to music, watch films, read novels and use arts in their rush to make money. However the artist is a persona non grata and is looked down upon as a nonentity. the question , however is , What would the world have been without art?
