"art isn't cheap" is both a figurative and literal statement

Answering the question "What is Art?" with the statement "art isn't cheap" is a concept called apophasis. Apophasis, in this context, most closely defines “the practice of describing something by stating which characteristics it does not have especially because human thought or language is believed to be insufficient to describe it fully or accurately” (Merrium-Webster Dictionary)

disclaimer: the artist does not claim to have the "answer" to what art is.
