A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN ARTIST
Have you ever witness the happiness of an Artist when he/she is in an Exhibition? Well, I have and today, I will highlight some of the insights regarding a Day in the life of an Artist. So let’s start.
By nature, Artists are very sensitive people. Sensitive in the sense they feel and react to things that matter to them the most as compared to the general people.
This doesn’t however, mean that they don’t know how to carry themselves among general people. As a matter of fact, they are only comfortable among people who are more or less like them.
Most of the time, they have an ambiance by which people, in general, are attracted to them. And makes people talk to them.
Some of them leave an unforgettable impression on you whereas there are some whose first expression leaves a very negative image on the beholder. You may have many to relate to.
Art Exhibitions are the most common places where you might come across many Artists and might be lucky in spending time with a few. In my opinion, it is altogether a unique experience.
A couple of days ago, I visited an Exhibition and was impressed to see the lot with a passion for arts and creativity.
Many of the Artists comprised of people belonging to different backgrounds but the way they juxtaposed their passion into a fine piece was worth seeing and appreciating.
The gathering was not a huge one due to the situation of COVID-19 prevailing in the background but whoever was there among the audience were all art lovers.
Not to mention the chief guests who not only were learned people in the field of Arts but were down to earth people.
And the best thing about them was that they viewed each painting in the gallery and motivated the Artists. What else would an artist need to keep on producing ones best?
Some words of appreciation and motivation and a platform are the basic requisites that any artist needs to survive in the community.
Here, in Pakistan, mostly galleries are focussed on making commissions and paying less to the artists for their months of dedicated work.
All the same, there are galleries such as NUKTA STUDIO and Azure Art Gallery( online-launching soon) are the ones whose main focus is on the Artists from all backgrounds and their work.
The culture that is being manifested in these galleries is one of its kind, an experience worth trying out.
In a normal day to day schedule, a full-time artist is found indulge in their work irrespective of what is going on in their surroundings but they are different people if you interact with them on a face to face basis.
Their paintings are a depiction of their true self. If you want to know an artist, study their work. You will very much know about them even if you don’t get a chance to talk to them.
And even if you do get a chance to talk to them, always be bold without fearing the outcome. It’s worth an experience. Do try. Until next time stay safe and healthy.
