Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One piece of the puzzle is the diversion of (some of the) potential artistic talent from traditional channels. In the visual arts, I have often encountered new works that combine a powerful esthetics with jarring symbolism and beautiful execution. The creators clearly represent a broad and deep pool of talent. Their images make their public appearances in magazine advertising.

The diversion of talent from traditional forms of art into the electronic media (video, computer graphics...) contributes to this picture.

Note that I have expressed no opinion regarding whether the products of this talent qualify as art, or (better) where they should be regarded as fitting in the spectrum of creative products that includes the arts.

Words and ideas I offer here may be used freely and without attribution.
