Art Chantry on heroes

“My heroes tend to be outsider monkey-wrenchers who really kickstart cultural trends. But in reality there are no ‘great men,’ merely blowhards who stand on top of everybody else’s work and grab all the credit. It bothers me that the ‘fine design culture,’ a distinct subculture within the larger language of visual culture, has adopted the art world fantasy of the ‘great man theory.'”
