AVILA SAYS ABOUT THE MUGRABIS’ WARHOL AND KOONS MANIA:

‘Whom ever pays for a Warhol millions of dollars is an utterly idiot… Basquiat was ten times the artist that Warhol ever was, and I think that Warhol knew it. A big part of what’s going on in the art world has to do with the lack of judgment by critics and by the “art people” who renounce to make sensible decisions about the quality of the work of a determinate artist due to personal interest, or plain ignorance… So, we have today that the value of a painting is dictated in great manner by personal interests based on… personal interests, not by the repercussion that a work of art could have in society… If experts around the world would make a serious effort to analyze the “Hanging Heart by Jeff Koons” there is a pretty good chance that their critic would point towards the superficial aesthetics of “the thing” destined in the near future to be abandoned in a dusty Las Vegas junk yard…’
