Today’s topic: STUDENT or MASTER?
Certainly, those of you that attended an art school remember the time
when you felt that your work would be so much better if only the
instructor said, "This is a good piece;" or the time when the highly
admired fellow artist's spot-on criticism and suggestions were loaded
with the mystical power to transform your creation into a masterpiece.
Of course, you remember exploring uncharted waters and looking to give
your confidence the big boost needed to keep you working. But the process of achieving artistic greatness follows unique paths for each artist, and this process
changes your status from student to master, gradually. The
assertiveness in your art comes in time. So, when does an artist stop
being a student? Well, the short answer: never! The long answer: when
criticism doesn't faze him anymore and he is no longer looking for advice
from teachers and peers. #art#artistsoninstagram#artist#artschool#artteachersofinstagram#artteacher#artsy#artgallery#artarticles#nycgallery#arte

Check out my ARTicle on Zoe Leonard’s show “Survey” for @lemilemagazine
In this article I am comparing Zoe Leonard’s practice to the idea of the word Tourist through the issue of DACA.
Le Mile Magazine is a German Magazine focused on fashion & art and its relationship in progressive cultural identity.
Enjoy and more to come
Make sure you see the show at @whitneymuseum
"believe in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter — tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther . . . . And one fine morning — So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past." ✳️
Ugo Rondinone | It’s late It’s late and the wind carries a faint sound as it moves through the trees. It could be anything. The jingling of little bells perhaps, or the tiny flickering out of tiny lives. I stroll down the sidewalk and close my eyes and open them and wait for my mind to go perfectly blank. Like a room no one has ever entered, a room without any doors or windows. A place where nothing happens | 1998
One from last year, fantastic to feature in the @houseandgardenuk November issue where I spoke of my approach to my art advisory: “Hopefully I make building a collection fun, and take away a lot of worry”. Thank you @lgvlb and @_ektobin for including me in the ‘Big Art Issue’. ⠀
End of last year I decided to write an article rooted in teaching and fusing. I am a part of the fine art community and the streetwear/ sportswear community. Living in both of these communities there are alot of similarities in all aspects, that both communities are not aware of. These articles are not tailored to one community or the other, they are meant to teach. In adapting in the way my generation digests information, the articles are written in the form of mind maps. Beyond the culture, these articles are essential to life.
Read the articles on various platforms, link in bio.

“As soon as I know my craft, I feel it’s time to move on. There are so many media and I want to devour them all.” Popular, unpretentious and always remaining true to her beliefs, the artist Yasmina Alaoui appears to have tapped into a desire among many for authenticity with her sculptures and mixed-media paintings.

She became known for painting obese bodies, then bodies about to undergo plastic surgery – both mostly female. People have presumed her work is anti-plastic surgery, or a comment about the tyranny of thin, but she says she isn’t interested in passing judgment. It was the idea of how bodies can be changed, and the stories of why they had changed, that fascinated her. But her work is undoubtedly “female” - her women do not look like the idealised women, painted by men, who have dominated the nude for almost all of art history. When I ask if she thinks she would be more celebrated if she were a man, she simply says: “I wouldn’t make this work if I was a guy.” Interview for The Guardian by Emine Saner.
Would you like to know how the art business functions in France?🎨🖼
There are certain rules, you can’t break.
There exist several channels for selling paintings in this country:
1. There are two types of galleries, open to artists: a) gallery-atelier of one painter. They exhibit works of the owner and his friends, from time to time, to vary exhibitions. b) Galleries that work with different artists. In fact, for many years they have already worked only with a certain group of artists. It's almost impossible to get in there. “No trespassing” sign…🤭
2. Websites like Artsper and Artprice. Some of them work only with galleries. Others cooperate with artists, but the point is that if you want to use their platform to sell your masterpieces, no matter if they are sold or no, you have to pay a fee of presence on their web every month. There are millions of competitors there (other artists). If you manage to sell, you will give them 50%. To use less known versions does not make any sense.
3. Art salons. Very expensive pleasure to have. For 15 sq meters of wall the artist pays 1500 euros minimum, if this salon is average, if it is a known one, you pay about 5000 euros. Salons last from 2 to 4 days, there are thousands of participants (read “competitors”). They earn not only by renting their exhibition space, but also selling entrance tickets, 15 euros per person. They have from 5 to 10 thousands of visitors. Someone sells, but it's a great luck to do so, because you have to invite your own loyal clients. There are few sales, but it is prestigious to participate. Everyone does that.😋
4. Exhibitions-salons of local scale such as "The Road of Artists in Saint-Remy-de Provence". Although you pay an acceptable fee for participation, the majority of artists there are amateurs, the visitors are tourists who see your paintings accidentally on their way to the market in the morning.🍓🍷
