>>53279just put this on instagram and ur guccifor real tho I hear u
>>53279you're an outsider artist, you dont belong on instagram anyway, instagram is for feel-good kitsch, landscapes, portraits and aesthetics rather than artistic outlets of mental illness.
>>53288is there anywhere you would recommend then?
>>53291Find out who buys/sells/is interested in outsider art in your main city, send them your portfolio.Outsider art is a toughie because it doesnt really fit in the contemporary scene and also doesnt fit in the kitsch scene, due to its lack of conceptual vigor and being too 'out there' respectively
>>53292No one will ever want to buy why I make so I might just keep it to myself then
>>53294Thats your choice man, aslong as you dont live your life punishing yourself with that thought when you havent even tried.https://www.christies.com/lotfinder/Drawings-Watercolors/thornton-dial-posing-for-love-1994-5970312-details.aspx?lid=1&from=relatedlot&intobjectid=5970312
>>53294you didn't make this post to stay where you are now though..
>>53302Exactly. I feel like the OP might be like me. I enjoy making art, but I don't care about making art that other people enjoy, and I don't have the slightest drive or desire to go through the trouble of trying to actually profit from my art. I make art because it's an expression of my being, not to try and jew some people out of their dollars. Then again, I am an artist, not a graphic designer.
>>53303I'm ernest and I don't condone the "jewing people out of money" joke, so please stop that. Other than that: you're right, but social media is just about finding the right audience, that already loves what you like. Don't think you're special enough, that only you like your kind of art, there are loads of people out there waiting to discover your shit.You just need to make it available to them and you could profit/live off of your own special art.
>>53305Hello ernest. I think my rigid views on the acceptance of consumer art as a viable means of survival are tied heavily to my own experiences regarding professional art. I have a lot of demons to surmount regarding my place in this existence. I think we're disingenuous to ourselves in ways we don't consider, but I also see a distinct line between functional art and fashion. This life itself is an artful experience, and in that sense is inherently corrupt.
>>53305but if artists make a living off of their work how can they pretend to be tortured artist types?
>>53302am not op just in the same boat as him
