Well, simple post to talk about what seems to be happening quite often (but still not THAT often!) .
I was wondering if i was the only one to have noticed it, and i know probably not but still, i think a little talk about it could be interesting.
Did you ever noticed a ‘‘trend’’ in the new pieces of art you see on different online galleries? By that i mean people not participating in any kind of challenge or themed contest but all having very similars concept or even details/description being posted within a said amount of time, let’s say 2 weeks? (Okay, am i making sense there? :shrug: )
Lately, i have noticed the ‘‘mask’’ trend, with the ‘‘hiding our true self behind a mask’’ concept. In different online galleries, i recently saw various artwork posted with this theme and it made me remember another time that i noticed a similar occuring several months ago (this time it was about mermaids).
Obviously, those artists did not all talk to each other and told themselves ‘’ Yeah! Let’s all do something with this and that!’’ and they did not intend to do something similar to someone else. Which brings us back to the point where we are saying that every idea has already been done at least once and that the same idea can pop in the mind of someone else right at the same time. Or is it simply the same source of inspiration that led them to it?
So, what’s your thoughts about it? I’m curious to know.
Also, i want to add that i have nothing against those artists (during the ‘‘mermaid trend’’ i was also working on a mermaid piece which i left behind after seeing it happening; i wanted to wait a little before finishing it and posting it without a bunch of other mermaids around…) and their work and the said pieces i am talking about are very, very well executed and well done. I am not accusing anyone of stealing the concept of the other: each are done differently but still have some very similars elements.
(p.s.: Sorry about the bad or weird english in some places.)
