You want me to:
Act right with your guests and have a personality
Drive to your event (gas)
Drive back home (more gas)
Promote your event
Actually have talent
Get people to come out and pay you so they can see me
Pack up art
Carry art to the car
Carry art into the event and hang it
Stay at your event
Tell you this is what I do for work, like, this is my full-time job
And you...you want to pay me in what? I can’t even eat with you? You’re not trying to look out for me? You can get paid but I can’t? The bar can get paid but I can’t? The band can get paid but I can’t?
No. (<— A full sentence.)
My home is an Art gallery this month! Have the privilege of fostering a few of up coming artist Trishna Singh’s older painting collection in Mumbai.
First two are oil on canvas roughly 3X3 ft.
3rd is a watercolour with preserved flower diptych 11X8” (prices between 20K to 50k)
If anyone is interested feel free to inbox me for more details.

Sometimes people/orgs reach out, not because they want to work with me, but because they want to know what number I’ll give. Not because I’m skilled at what I do, but just to see if they can find someone cheaper.
I’m down to work with a budget, but you should know you’re speaking to someone who does this full time. This is my job. This isn’t a hobby. This is years of work and honing. This is 10+ years of working with youth, this is 10+ years of facilitation, this is 5+ years of performing, this is 2 college degrees, this is real life experience, this is skill, this is talent.
My strong suggestion to anyone reaching out is to tell me your budget out the gate.
When it comes to artwork, if you’re an individual, I’m happy to do installments.
When it comes to business, I’m a business, not your friend. Not an amateur. Not a newbie.
Thank you for respecting the hustle and work. Do you know how hard it is to even ask for what you think your work is worth? For people to take you seriously when you’re constantly being offered exposure or close to nothing for your WORK?
Let’s not waste time.
If you think I’m too pricey now, shit, just wait and see...
It’s not a cost or expense, it’s an investment and will be addressed as such from now on.
These two are the best kind of fun to hang out and work with. @juleskoostachin : “Where are your snow boots @safesolvent ?” @safesolvent: “Oh, I dunno Jules. Nice converse, though.” As they both walk through the Alberta mountain top snow in their ‘waterproof’ sneakers.
