Why artists are poor?
I have received quite a few talk requests here on Qoorio from young people aspiring to create.
One of the most pressing question for young creative is the managment of time, since most juggle between jobs and projects trying to survive and practise art at the same time.
There is no easy answer to this question as we are products of our society, shaped by shared values, public policies and peer pressure.
This is an interesting interview exploring the subject of art funding, poverty among creators and public notion on what is good art.
I just got a sudden depression/anxiety attack recently, to point it got me thinking to myself: "why am I limiting myself for family?". That very question sparks my whole identity, as a son, a brother, and the boy who dreams big, but have to keep low profile.
My question to you: what made you feel you are free from shackles of family? How, and why?
As an artist in my soul, I admire that the term "looking good" is up for debate, while the anti-beauty movement is here to stay. I remember my studies and the concept of unreasonable beauty, brought to my mind by the most talented philosophy and art mentors. That's precisely what it is. Finally.
