Lik's philosophy

Lik doesn't have to create art, he doesn't have to be original. If people buy his work and make him rich, none of that matters to him.

And I think his philosophy is just that - he's not creating art, he's just creating images people are willing to buy and he's willing to lie about how they were created to sell the images.

But also, looking through his work, there are a lot of nice images if not overpriced. But a lot of schlock. It's as if to say, "If I shoot this in a large enough format with enough resolution and enlarge it enough, it immediately transforms from schlock into something special."
