How To Recognise A Work of Art is Meilyr Jones’ new single (http://smarturl.it/MeilyrJonesHTRAWOA), taken from his forthcoming debut album out next year.

It is a song about authenticity and forgery Meilyr says ‘I wrote the song about the preposterous world of art collectors, the panic of what is popular, what will succeed, telling people what to like, and what to eat, and the recycling of pop culture. I also wanted to make something light and fun, and full of humor.”

“When in Rome I spent my days seeing churches, like a tourist and I remember seeing a nun putting a plastic plant in front of a Rafael fresco. That lack of reverence of the past I really liked. I would enjoy seeing tourists taking self portraits of themselves next to Michelangelo sculptures.

How to Recognise A Work Of Art is about the obsession in our time with authenticity and the cult of the artist.

In 'What is Art?', Tolstoy writes about vanity and the idea that the only way to discern if wheather something is authentic is through personal intuition. “
