Darren Coffield is an artist and writer who feels the art world (read art industry) has become so commercialised that it now exists only to serve the collector, the speculator and the market.

In this episode of Meet the Renegades, Darren lifts the lid on how contemporary artists actually become famous and how ‘the market’ has created the art ‘industry.’

“The idea of originality which was a great point of modernism, of modern design; the idea of being original, of being true to yourself that’s completely gone out the window because you’re now into commodification of things.”

He explains that authenticity and originality have been stifled and extreme gentrification has pushed many artists to survive on margin of society.
