I cant believe you couldnt find a photo of a woman REALLY wearing headphones that you resorted to a photoshopped one? Come on.
Poorly edited writing.
You don't move here for the deals, you move here for the people. Move to New York. We're all still here.
Bogota is ok for a couple of days, but the pollution is horrible, the city smells like gasoline. Go to Cartagena.
Again? This is at least a 15 year old article. I have read dozens like it. You can do better L.
I am actually moving out of New York. Looking for studios in Bogota. Come on, people, move here with me and we'll try to make this city the next Berlin:)
Wow. Do you guys ever leave North Brooklyn?
Interesting you say this with the fact that NYC has been gaining population overall.You shouldn't put too much on what you hear from MICA grad's, unless they are Hoffberger painting students. MICA, once a backwater school with all eyes on NYC, has recently had a makeover with an aggressive fund raising administration aiming the curriculum toward anime, manga, CGI and gaming graphics. The money is there. Up to now students were pie eyed for Pixar. So for MICA students not perceiving NYC as mecca hardly surprises.
So only the wealthy can afford to be artists, thus subtracting the bite of class alienation , let's say, that can be seen in a Basquiat. There are some other reasons to not go to nyc, as you allude to. The artists coming to nyc all have a degree with the same homogenized post-modernist agenda, and they formulaically follow. Abstractions drone on, conceptual Pop caricatures leer back their smug irony, Casualist mish mashes seem like sterile university exercises, all safely defanged in some art historical niche. Looking at the big picture, the decline of an art center is not unusual, Athens, Rome, Paris. And, there is denial. Recently Art News printed a small account of a show in Rome that intends to say painting or art in NYC is not dead. The problem is they show an example of Jeff Koons antiquity painting as an example of the viability of the tradition, when in fact, his 'paintings' are the very problem, more at how NYC art has become the 21st Century version of L'Ecole des Beaux Artes. They are totally outsourced, poorly designed, anally crafted collages that say nothing about painting since there is no reason for them to be done in paint. One could just as well send the photoshop image to a large inkjet/laser printer and get the same image. No difference. So, for me, it's not just the cost of living, it's the tradition that's closed out. As Paris needed a Monet, so does NYC. Lastly, for what it's worth, I hear the money is leaving for London, closer to oil and gold.
I am an artist who spends maybe 3/4 working time in a small studio in NYC and shows nationally and internationally, and I would claim that probably about 95% of my art practice is self-funded, i.e. not from patrons, collectors or grants. Most people that know me think I am doing really well and that I make a living off of my work, but when I tell them that I support my work through money I make in other fields, there is often disbelief or even suspicion that I am faking modesty or something. I do what I do as an artist because it is the only thing I really care about, even if I have to do other work I don't want in order to keep doing it.
In my studio building, during normal weekday work hours, the building is empty of artists. They come mostly in during the weekend as they are busy with their day jobs throughout the week. What is interesting is that many of these artists have the larger, more expensive spaces in the building which means they are willing to pay high prices to be in their studios for a few days out of the week. I often wonder if many of them will ever break the surface at such a pace. Kind of gives new meaning to the idea of "Sunday painter."
The Brooklyn What is amazing - they should be included here.
