The new chalARTans

St Francis of Assisi wrote, “He who works with his hands is a labourer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”

However, times have changed.

Nowadays, he who doesn’t work with his own hands, has no heart, but has a great head, mainly for figures, and yet has the effrontery to call himself an artist, is a chartlARTan.

You can recognise him by his work. It is tawdry, superficial, meaningless and meretricious. It has no heart.
