Simon De Pury Talks About Design (VIDEO)

Simon de Pury, chairman of auction house Phillips de Pury & Company and Work of Art judge, knows a thing or two about the fine line that separates good art from great art. In the video below, he gives his take on the distinction between design and art, discussing how boundaries between different visual arts are eroding, and that "either somebody is a great artist or he’s not. So you have some incredible artists who express themselves by creating furniture, or objects that you can use on a daily basis."

Watch what else de Pury has to say about design in the video below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
