Hedge Funder Moves Into Art

7 Jun

From Marketplace, an article about a former Wall Street hedge fund manager turned artist — who uses his financial background as inspiration. Most of his work is a rather angry-looking, by-the-numbers version of Abstract Expressionism.

I guess the anger is in keeping with the tenor of the times and the low reputation of Wall Street these days. I hope he has a lot of savings left over from his Wall Street days because dude, if you want to be an artist, welcome to poverty.
