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.
After our first publication about these rare $36 Million Chinese Ming Dynasty statuettes, The World Art News received further questions regarding their provenance, authenticity, valuation, and who may be the potential buyer of these unique artifacts.

Professor Tamoikin was surprisingly candid with us and gave stunning answers to all our questions. If you ever wandered how the super-rich do business, negotiate, and operate in the art market, this interview is a Must-Read!

The Tamoikin Art Fund (TAF) is clearly looking to test this theory, because recently it unveiled two ancient Chinese statuettes that have been attributed to the Ming Dynasty, which ruled China from 1368 to 1644.
