Success in an art career is a deeply personal journey, with varying definitions for each artist. Nevertheless, there are 5 key indicators of achievement that I continually recalibrate my path toward:
1. Recognition: This could be in the form of exhibitions, awards, and grants. When an artist's work is recognized by their peers, critics, or art institutions, it can help increase their visibility and credibility.
2. Sales: Selling artwork is an important aspect of an artist's career. It not only provides financial support but also indicates that there is a demand for their work in the market.
3. Reputation: An artist's reputation is built over time through the quality and consistency of their work, as well as their professionalism and ethics. A positive reputation can open doors to new opportunities and collaborations.
4. Creative freedom: Being able to create art that is meaningful and authentic to the artist's vision is an important measure of success. This means having the resources and support to pursue their creative endeavors without compromising their artistic integrity.
5. Personal fulfillment: Ultimately, success in an art career is about personal fulfillment and satisfaction. This could mean creating work that resonates with the artist's own values and beliefs, or being able to make a positive impact through their art.
It's important to note that there is no one-size-fits-all definition of success in an art career, and each artist may have their own unique goals and aspiration
