Everyday Artistic

The recession has a lasting effect on artists who make due with what they have

Implications - Using everyday objects as an art medium makes it easier for an audience to understand art, while signifying consumers' ability to make due with what they have. Even after the credit crunch has subsided, artists and everyday consumers are making the best of what they have, creating pieces that are innovative in more ways than one. Artists and art directors can adapt this style to make pieces that the average audience can relate to effortlessly.
