Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) July 18, 2013
Paul Klein, Founder of Klein Artist Works, was recently featured in Forbes magazine. The article titled "3 Keys to Making It As An Artist (Without Starving)" featured Klein's tips on how to help artists be successful.
In a recent lecture entitled “How to Succeed as an Artist,” artist and career advisor Paul Klein emphasized the importance of being different. He insinuated that distinctiveness generates sales – even more so than quality. “Can’t all of us name artists who are doing really well monetarily, whose work we think sucks?” The branded artist doesn’t necessarily produce better work, but more bankable work.
Klein believes there are 3 main points to creating success for an artist:
1. Be distinctive. “Be yourself because everyone else is taken,” says Klein, “have a clear vision of who you are and train yourself to be more yourself in order to stand out as someone with a unique point of view.”
2. Get in the game and get engaged. Klein says, “Don’t sit in your studio and wait for the world to come to you, create opportunities for your work to be seen.” Klein has created a course to help with this specific point with Klein Art Works. The 12 week course helps artists strategize to succeed.
3. Make good art
Klein states, “The only obstacles that may exist in the art world are the obstacles you put in front of yourself or the lack of knowledge.” Klein promotes his 12 week program of Klein Art Works as helping artists have access to this much needed knowledge by having mentors and experts available for his students. These mentors and experts have succeeded in the art world and Klein believes the way to be better and acquire more knowledge is to associate with people better than oneself.
