A visual artist's success depends on various factors. Talent and giftedness, knowledge, technical skills, strength of imagination, creativity, ingenuity, entrepreneurial spirit and staying power are all essential aspects. You will display your work to the public via exhibitions, presentations and demonstrations.
This allows you to publicise your work, invite responses, and build-up your public base, as well as stimulating the sale of your work to private individuals, government and the business world.
- You can also take on assignments, collaborate with others, participate in meetings and projects or pursue a masters degree.
- You might choose to work in the confinements of your own studio, or perhaps in public spaces.
There are plenty of opportunities - but you'll have to take them yourself: That's part of being an independent artist.
