Each Artist has a Story…
“Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign. But stories can also be used to empower, and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people. But stories can also repair that broken dignity.”
– Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, author
There are millions of ways one can become an artist. There are millions of people who have. And there are millions of unique styles and art practices that have been created over time; some of them are unimaginable, but all of them are truly inspirational!
Here, we tell their stories. Stories about artists and their artistic journeys, about their rises and falls, their struggles and wins, and their fruitful joy of becoming Artists through perseverance, dedication and struggles.
Every story is unique, but all of them have a similar message: follow your dream. Follow it, and you can achieve heights unimaginable.
Our hope is that with the stories that we publish about artists and their artistic journeys will inspire other artists on their own journeys. We want to tell them that it’s ok to make mistakes, to experience failures and to be told “no”. We know that all of these challenges are temporary; they are just little stumbles along the path towards bigger goals. And we know this because by telling stories about artists in our Art Blog we witness first hand how through struggles and, sometimes, personal hardships, they persevere, and how, through all of the difficulties they meet on their path to success, they never give up their love for art!
Per Aspera ad Astra.
Anyone can reach the stars, especially those who share true love for what they do.
Read our inspiring stories in our Featured Artists section, and we truly hope that we can help you be inspired to continue pursuing your dreams of becoming an Artist!
