“No information = mystique. That's definitely part of it, although it does sound a little contrived put like that. 

You can have any facts you want, but you're sworn to secrecy. Only kidding, I just hate those sites where they have a moody photo of the artist with some trenchant quote about their life and art underneath.

I'm 45, married, lots of children, cats, rabbit. I'm also self-taught, so if you're going to give anything away, let it be that.  People love it, it's democratic.”
