“You have to be business-minded. Try to understand that everyone in this world wants to make money. Including you and your artworks. You are part of the art world, you have to be able to embrace that.”

“Intense friendships, profound conversations, love, sex, feelings of connection, my fears and letting go of people. All the feelings and emotions I store and sometimes experience more violently than ever. I don’t run away from them anymore – I put them on canvas.”

The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The American Museum of Natural History.
These are familiar institutions that you may have visited, considered visiting, or heard of in passing.
While these landmarks are popular for a reason, there are tens of thousands of other museums across the U.S. that many people are not as familiar with.
And that’s a shame, since these off-the-wall stops consist of enriching, unique exhibits that may convert even the most stubborn of museum doubters.
“My art style is playful, it’s bold, it’s confident, it’s minimal, and it’s full of meaningful and powerful messages.”

Part 3 of our Exclusive Interview with Dave Vescio may be The Best One Yet!
This time Dave, an Ex-Con, a Movie Star, and an Award-Winning Artist, talks about perhaps the most important subject of all – Creativity.
Here’s a taste: “Just focus on creating art and getting it out into the world anyway you can. That’s all that matters. If you want to sell it, sell it, if you want to give it away, then give it away, if you want to store it and hope someone takes it after you die, then do that too. Either way, focus on creating the art that you want to create in this moment in time. That’s all that matters, that’s all there really is. Everything else is just an illusion of false realities of what we think life is, but actually isn’t.”
Many NFT sellers have gotten rich almost overnight through selling NFTs.
Digital artists, content creators, and NFT enthusiasts come up with new NFT projects every day in hopes of gaining wealth by selling them.
NFTs have grown in popularity thanks to their unique trait of being an indivisible digital asset, which cannot be replicated and safely exists in the tamper-free blockchain.
So can you get rich with NFTs?
Long story short, yes!
The world of social media is constantly changing, but it’s a great place to promote your art and build a community of fans as well as like-minded peers.
Here are some of Julie Ehrmantraut’s top tips to help you get started promoting your art on social media.
Julie is an artist and business owner with nearly a decade of experience with sharing her work on social media and selling art online through various channels.
Alongside her art business she also teaches other artists how to make an income from their art online through her website, JulieErinDesigns.com, and classes on Skillshare.
The art industry and the creative community at large is often overlooked and sometimes even looked down upon as a career choice. In every society there is a common misconception that individuals who wish to pursue a career in the arts are throwing away their future and will never be successful.
However, in modern times, it has been proven over and over again that a career can be made from almost anything. With the right mentorship and knowledge – success can be just around the corner!
In this article we uncover some of the positive aspects of being an artist and show how to make use of one’s resources to create a name for yourself.
Take steps. Small steps. If you want a career to be long-lasting you don’t want to force something to grow. Building a career is just like growing a plant. It needs to be planted in good soil and taken care of while it’s still small and unknown to the world. It has to get love and the right nutrition to be able to function and to live up to its potential as a bigger plant.
Do not rush. I can’t emphasize this enough. Yes, you need to throw yourself out there and be willing to do things that scare you, but you should never compromise with your own health – mental, physical or spiritual – nor should you lower your morals or let go of your integrity in order to get to where you want to go. This needs to be intact and if you are a solid artist your career will take off in the time you are ready for it.
Let’s say you have discovered yourself as an artist and you want to express yourself in some of the more traditional ways we look at creativity, for example painting, singing, writing music, dancing, or sculpting and designing. If you are certain about the way and the technique you want to express yourself in, but you’re new and haven’t discovered your specific style yet, it can be a very tricky task. It’s not because you don’t have it already but because of the influence of everything around you. It is important to remember you can’t give what you don’t have. We all know this but we tend to forget it while starting to look around us and being affected by what others do and think. This leads us towards the two approaches we will highlight in this article to clarify how you can discover your art style and what actually makes an impression on your creative self.
