Imagine if you became a super famous artist and at one point, someone does an Art History presentation on you and your art. While you are still alive to acknowledge that.

How crazy would that be? X'D

Yeah it's kinda sad. The internet kinda desensitized art a lot.

That being said... artists like Del Kathryn Barton are really well known still

Never heard of them tbh.  The main issue is that we see art every day, whether it be on TV or at the movies, and you really have to be an artist, and into a certain kind of art, to know anyone. While I know a lot of stylistic canine artists, I don't know nearly as many human or other type artists. And people who just aren't artists, such as my brother, teacher, or any random pick in a crowd, likely won't know any artists from this generation. Many people who aren't artists don't even know what DA is. And that's why 21st century artists likely wont be storming history books any time soon :/ And one of the many reasons why I don't plan on making art my career.

Same goes for writers, and musicians, and actors, though! How much music have you heard in movies or commercials, but how many truly modern music writers (not singers) do you know?

Calvin Harris. Doing any entertainment tied job is a risk, but actors, musicians, even writers, are more likely to gain fame than artists. Hell, I fall out of art all the time, but music always soothes me. I'll always be interested in a movie, and do enjoy reading books from time to time. But even as an artist I fall out of love with art from time to time.

ahh I suppose that's where we differ! I'm obsessed with art and comics and how it's deployed in games and animation xD

That's not exactly what I mean xD I meant that I won't be interested in drawing myself for months to years maybe at a time, lol. I love good art and I think I'll always be able to appreciate it, but that doesn't mean I care enough to learn names. Most people don't care as much about who drew it as how much they like it, and that' why no one's getting famous anytime soon, lol.

Art isn't really dependent on fame, though. Artists can afford to be "behind the stage" because they can get paid without anybody even knowing who they are. There are plenty of famous modern day artists like Banksy though, you just have to be in the right scene. People these days are obsessed with drama and entertainment, so of course the media isn't going to cover something more quiet and complex like art.  If you don't care to learn about artists then of course you wouldn't know of any recently famous ones because it isn't getting pushed in your face by media like singers or actors xD

Yeah but I ask my profs or anyone who hasn't been on DA, and even a good chunk of people ON DA, have no idea who they are.

Jackson Pollock is the most recent famous artist I've ever heard of, and his stuff was done in in the 50s and 60s most of the big stuff.
