Pigsy poses the question: Are you better off being ordinary and not having to deal with problems associated with being extraordinary? These problems include lack of privacy, an expectation from the public and all forms of negative attention, which has been exacerbated by the emergence of social media. From Jesus being crucified to the struggles of Elvis and Basquiat in more recent times – he wonders is the public that drives the mental issues that affect people in the spotlight or are they a trade off from the ability that they possess as performers. Pigsy also fears the prospect of becoming successful himself and instead of painting being a release it becomes a burden, where a certain level of “performance” is expected.
