Art? It's like the sex trade

London artist Stella Vine, who has just opened up her own gallery, has this to say about the art world:

'When I went into the art world, I didn't have any knowledge of the little systems, all of the details of the interaction between you and the dealer. I just thought, if you make great art, you can put it anywhere, the environment is irrelevant. But it's not about that, it's about the psychological exchange. The art world is really exactly the same as the sex industry: you have to be completely on guard, you will get shafted, fucked over left, right and centre. And you will also meet charming, wonderful people like a rainbow at the end of the day.'....here is the whole story
