Please check out this @kickstarter campaign in support of our friend Singapore based Peranakan artist @jenniferlimart - We are delighted to hear that Jennifer has been selected to participate in the MI-LAB Artist in Residence Program, for which she was selected from over 100 applicants. For five weeks, she'll be mentored in a master class in Japan aimed at supporting international artists in 'Mokuhanga' 版画, otherwise known as water-based woodblock printing. - As always, any support is greatly appreciated. Thank you! 👩‍🎨💕 (Link in bio to #kickstarter campaign) - - - #artistssupportingartists #communityovercompetition #supportlocalart #singaporeartist #sgig #supportthearts #livecreatively #thiscreativelife #creativityinspired #artcurator #art_empire

"As we all know, a good artist need stay to be true to her/himself in order to create impressive work to make the impact. Women in China weren't given enough fair attention in the past. Myself, my mother, my auntie and my grandmother were all the victims under such a system if we are allowed to call it that. Single Child policy came into effect in the same year when I was born. It was a disappointment caused to my family when they found out I was a girl. Over the years, I was striving to be the best in the school, at work etc in order to make a statement that there is no difference between a girl and boy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Being an artist, I asked myself what is my value and What I can bring to the world to make an impact?... All those introspective questions led my next series of work of prominent female figures" - If you have not read our interview with @michellemaart you can find it here --> https://goo.gl/P1k6uI - - - - #chineseart #chineseartist #calledtocreate #creativelife #livecreatively #thiscreativelife #creativityinspired #creativehappylife #creativeliving #createeveryday #arthomepage #artistic_nation #creativeprocess #artbiz #arts_help #artsanity #artcurator #art_empire #artistsoninstagram #artjournal #artlover #artistlife #artiste #artgram #artofinstagram #art_spotlight #worldofartists #creativityinspired #artnerd #artsy

We recently chatted with one of our favourite ladies, the fab Jessica from @artistmarketco about the biggest art biz challenges she hears about from her community... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "There’s so many! Things like… “I’ve never thought of myself as an entrepreneur”, “How do I price my work”, “I can’t find the right way to promote myself”, “There’s just so much to do – how does one achieve these things within a set of parameters so that it doesn’t take over”… and on and on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - The two biggest threads I’ve seen most consistently are “How do I know if I am good enough?” and “I don’t know who would buy my art”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - It breaks my heart reading some of the things these really talented people say. Making a living as an artist is hard. The problem is many artists want to create art, set it to the side, and hope people will search them out – cash in hand – ready to hand over their hard-earned money. No business, of any kind, works that way. Even artists have to learn how to promote themselves, make people aware they exist, prove their value to potential customers, etc. I’ve never heard of any art school teaching these things. For the life of me, I don’t understand why – so somebody’s gotta do it." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Read our full interview with Jessica, her interview is packed full of tips! 💥💥💥--> https://goo.gl/bdqk3n (link in bio to interviews) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - - - - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #calledtocreate #creativelife #livecreatively #creativebusiness #thiscreativelife #creativityinspired #creativehappylife #creativeliving #createeveryday #arthomepage #artistic_nation #creativeprocess #artbiz #arts_help #artsanity #artcurator #art_empire #artistsoninstagram #artjournal #artlover #artistlife #artiste #artgram #artofinstagram #artistmafia #art_spotlight #worldofartists #creativityinspired #artnerd #artsy hears about from her community... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "There’s so many!
