Young, Black and Artistic: 15 Black Artists on the Rise and Making Waves

Young, Black and Artistic: 15 Black Artists on the Rise and Making Waves

The beauty of art is that it's constantly evolving and being pushed to new heights with each new generation of artists. A crop of young black artists, in particular, deserve to be on your radar, adding immeasurably to the artistic dialog with their unique visions and techniques. We've already covered under-appreciated black actors as well as some of the greatest black fashion designers, but now it's time to show some love for talented young visual artists. 

Hailing from Nigeria to Tennessee, ranging from sculptors to photographers, these 20 to 30-somethings are well on their way to making names for themselves in the ultra-competitive world of visual art. Some have been blowing up for a while now, others have been getting attention at prestigious art fairs, and others are being selected for highly publicized events like an art exhibition curated by Shaq.

How to Be a Successful and Thriving Artist... For Real

  • Do you want to sell more of your art or craftwork at higher prices so you can spend
    your time creating quality work rather than feeling you have to "mass" produce your
    art in order to make a living...  but don't know how?
  • Do you need a proven easy to use plan to get your art or craft business going... but you feel intimidated and don't know where to start?
  • Would you like to have name recognition and have customers calling you... but don't
    know where to begin?
  • Do you want to turn your passion for art into a very profitable part-time or
    full-time business... but don't know how to do it?
  • Do you want to have all of the above without a huge amount of effort or becoming a "pushy salesperson" or an expert in marketing... but don't have a clue how to?
  • Want to know how to get started in an easy step-by-step manner... but didn't know where to find this information?
If your answers were "YES!" and of course I know they were ;), then you've come to the right place!
Let's be honest...You & I both know there's much more to earning a living as an artist than just
creating great art. Like it or not, you need to know how to sell it.

In fact, making the art is the enjoyable part. But creating great art alone is not going to pay the bills.
The problem is that it costs money to live and being a "starving artist" just doesn't cut it.

How To Promote and Sell Your Art- Secrets Revealed

"Who else doesn't want to die
as a poor and unknown artist?"

Despite the fact that the paintings of Vincent van Gogh are being sold for tens of millions of dollars today, he died poor and desperate because his art didn't sell during his lifetime.
Isn't that a tragic fate for such an outstanding artist?

Learn how to become a successful artist by selling your artwork and enjoying the financial rewards today

Did you know, that Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali both became multimillionaires in their lifetime because of their art sales? They did not share the tragic fate of poor artists like Vincent van Gogh.

What is the difference between van Gogh and Picasso or Dali?
What made the latter successful AND rich so quickly?
Do you believe, that those ingenious artists became famous and successful only because of their outrageous artistic capabilities? Picasso and Dali were not just ingenious artists; they were ingenious in the promotion of their art as well.
Have you ever heard any of the uncounted anecdotes about Picasso? Or the unusual public appearances of Dali? Those events didn't happen by accident. Both of these artists did them on purpose as a way to market their art and make themselves famous. Even today public relation experts and professional advertisers can still learn a lot from their successful PR-coups (famous contemporary artists like Jeff Koons or Damien Hirst know and apply their secrets, too!).

  • Do you want to sell more art and earn your well-deserved share of the profits, so you can make a living?
  • Do you have the feeling that you do not really understand how the art market works? Do words like "selling" and "marketing" rather frighten you?
  • Would you like to see your name in the media instead of the omnipresent Damien Hirst, so that the people are calling you and know your name?
  • Do you want to have an easy-to-follow plan to give your professional reputation and art business a huge lift?
  • Do you want to know why even mediocre artists become famous and successful, if they apply the right marketing techniques?

If your answer to any of these questions is "Yes!" and you want to walk in the shoes of Picasso and Dali, the eBook "Promoting & Selling Your Art" is the right choice for you.
