My university experience, and the bulk of my life in general, is riddled with love for TV series that emphasise the allure of sophisticated criminal enterprises. There’s a fascination with shows like White Collar, Narcos and The Blacklist, so much so that I began to learn Spanish while enthralled by one called El Dragón.

Clearly, I have a type, and I’ve made peace with that. But how does this relate to art? And why would anyone want to own a piece of canvas with a tainted past?
