Affordable Paintings in Asia | 5 Myths About The Art World

Myth 01: Artists Are Only Famous When He Is Dead


FACT: In the words of Emilie Zola, “If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.” In fact, people do not really recognise only the best of work to artists. Instead, people recognise those who want to be seen, those who put themselves out in the open and show the world what they are made of.

As an artist, do not wait for the world to see your art. Seize the chance when there is one in front of you. Speak out loud and share your affordable paintings in Asia to the world.


There is one opportunity for you right here! We offer all Asian artists a chance to showcase their artwork to a larger audience through a professional platform. Drop us a text in the Chat Box at the bottom right corner to know more!

Myth 02: Artists Are Born, Not Made.


FACT: Michelangelo said, “If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful at all.” Indeed, no one is born with the ability to paint. Take note, talent is different from skill. Talent is having an affinity; skill is learning how to polish. Being that, talent just another word of hardworking and dedication.

Myth 03: Artists Need To Suffer


FACT: Paul Cezanne once stated, “A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.” True enough, real art requires real emotions. But nobody said these emotions had to be caused by suffering, nor do these emotions need to be tragically melancholic — there are many great artists out there who actually paint out of joy. Enjoy the affordable paintings in Asia we have.

Myth 04: Artists Make Art For Art’s Sake, Not For Money


FACT: In the words of Andy Warhol, “Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.” There is no shame in profiting in doing what you love to do, it is simply the payoff from the investment the artist had given to him/herself. What is more, the good artist does art for the audience — it is only the bad that use them.
