How is modern art appreciated these days? How do we place value on art in this generation? Is art still art when nobody sees it? Or when hardly anyone gives it a “like”? Is art always dependent on being seen, being evaluate or being admired. And is art now just all about social media popularity? A kind of ranking through social media? And why have likes and the number of followers become so incredibly important?
Music is not only my passion, I live for it. I lay in bed at night with my eyes closed but my mind constantly working, always thinking about the next step. What to do next, how or when to put out the next song. It’s almost as if the musician’s life has always been instilled within me. I know what I have to do, I know what’s meant for me and I’ve accepted the fact early on that I was never meant for the traditional lifestyle.
With our new series “An artist´s life.” we want to share the stories of the people behind the art. “In life, everything and anything can go wrong at any moment so instead of planning something ‘to a T’ I just utilize what I have in that moment. Art in general adds joy to someone’s soul, and I believe instead of making this field extremely competitive and out of reach, companies should open up more jobs and help the artists of this world grow and really make a living.”
Life is a journey. With its ups and downs. And what is the life of an artist? Moments full of endless creative ideas, encounters with great people, the magic of creating and creating. But also the moments of depression, of stasis. Despair and disappointment. With yourself and others. Moments of questions. Doubts. With our new series “An artist´s life.” we want to share the stories of the people behind the art and what they have to say about it.
When I started modeling (many moons ago), social media was nowhere near the influence it has now. For far too long, I was angry about that. I felt like I had put in the work and was getting nowhere. But it was only because I didn’t know how to make my work actually work for me. I didn’t know how to influence social media.
