Should I Follow The Art Trends?

Recently I found myself in a conversation with another artist about her lack of sales. She was asking me about my sales and the secret formula I was using to find the things that were trending.

I think I was rather disappointing because I don’t follow trends, if fact I believe that following trends and what is popular stagnates art. As an artist I believe that we create things that we can’t find in the world. If you are following trends, then you are just creating more of what already exist.

I may sound a little upset in this video, I’m not, it’s just that this subject is really ridiculous to me… It’s one of the reasons I believe artist struggle so much…
