Don't disparage art and artists

In an advertisement I saw while on an MRT train recently, a poster featured a landscape of untidy bicycles. The tagline for it was: "Don't be messy like art".

This disparages art and the artists behind the artwork.

Campaigns should come up with better analogies, instead of kicking down the already low status of art and artists in our society.

Art has a place in our culture. It plays an important role in our lives. Do not denigrate it.
