Some wisdom about supporting creations of creative people from Heaven 17's Martyn Ware.

...there is nothing at all embarrassing, Ware argues, about being artistic – and Britain should wake up and realise that.
“I find the world tries to make you feel guilty,” he said this weekend. “But anything artistic is undervalued in this country at the moment. The zeitgeist seems to dictate that artists should be grateful for any attention they get. Well, I just don’t buy that at all. It is really appalling and we are actually damaging our future prospects when people don’t support artistic endeavour.”

The above quote can be found in a profile of 80s synthpop star Martyn Ware--and how he believes that avant-garde art can be accessible to everyone.
