Which seasons of the year are toughest as an artiste?

The beginning of the year is obviously the toughest, people have no time for arts because they have to make money for their basic needs.

No support at all, we just depend on our personal efforts.

Yes it is.

50% because the industry accommodates all persons, success depends on one’s own effort and passion.

Are there opportunities for self-employment in your field? Kindly expound on this.

Yeah, like in fine art I make my artworks and find how to sell them on my own, to me that is self-employment.

How did you start earning from your dream as an artist?

By attending gigs and exhibitions carrying my paintings with me and showcasing them. In skating I opened a Facebook page where I started advertising my brand as a skater and people were interested and started following up and coming for training.

How long does it take for one to rise to the top as an artiste?

According to me, it depends on your luck and dedication. If not that you have to part with some cash to get the exposure.

Is there anything else you think an ambitious youth would need to know about arts?

Art pays, thats all.

How can the society, clients or rather fans get in touch with you?
