Depends on what kinda art, really. I wouldn't call the Japanese animators the "wealthy people". Even most artist in general aren't rich, and only a select few many any real money out of it. In my country, the only way to make money out of art is by being government subsidized, and then they make this type of garbage art.

As Jack the Ripper said: "let's go part by part" (joking):
- "Art is always controlled by wealthy people" is a reference to this meme but changing the "suspiciously wealthy furry" with "otaku working in a (Swiss) bank". A reference for the owners of art pieces, not artists. And I agree with your statement: Artists never will receive such quantities of money because they must be famous in life or being dead.

About modern art (I'm writing about the style shown in expositions like ARCO), I think that the majority of it are either garbage, for money laundering purposes or they are bought because some naive people buy them for looks ("I bought this shit because I am entitled to know about art" or something).
Also, there's modern art pieces more appealing than others. If I had the opportunity to choose between a Pollock piece (a bunch of random lines) or a banana sticked in a wall with American tape, I would prefer the Pollock.

Did not know this meme... But I have got to say I barely follow the meme world anymore.

The whole "Art is always controlled by wealthy people"is what I suspect modern art is for because it lacks reality or even something based or grounded in reality.
What is kinda sad about the whole figure collecting if you are from the west, it kinda feels like a scam by our own tax system.

I still feel like (at least with the cheaper figs) that more of my money gets to the creator getting figs strait out of Japan over giving money to some fucking localization company for an English version of a Manga or DVD.
I could be wrong, though it would also come down to what kinda deal the creators make, so some of the onus is on them.
