Avant-garde today is part of the mass entertainment culture. It has the support and approval of bourgeois art institutions because that way art is supposedly accessible to ordinary people.
Posted @withrepost • @jasminenicholeart I've made it safe and sound on my drive to NYC and I'm looking to start booking shoots. You can book me through my website wwwjasmineNichole.com or shoot me an email for pricing. Airbus price for the month of April $75 for an hour $125 for 2
DM me, or shoot me an email (it on my page) I'm also doing personal shoots/sitting sessions for visual artists (ie. Painters) that are looking for a muse for their projects!
On that note I want to humbuly say THANK YOU to everyone who donated to my financial account accounts to help me get here. Who wished me a safe trip, who sent me love and light. Truly I would not have made it without you guys' help and I am truly humbled and honored to have people in my corner that love and support me the way that you guys do. I can't even begin to express how stressed and overwhelmed I was for the past few months, weeks and days about this move. I really don't know how else to express my gratitude to you guys 😩🙏🏾 but I will say this I will make the absolute most out of the next few months. Working as hard as I can to uplift and inspire this weird society we live in.
Lastly I want to say thank you to @dreadlocked_jew for enduring the exhausting drive up here with me. I don't think I would have been able to drive up here by myself and so be sane. Gabriel has also fallen in love with you and does not even care about my existence anymore lol
Anywho thank you all again, I love you guys 🖤 ♥️ 🙏🏾🦋
A very old self-portrait of sorts. I painted this back when I was trying really hard to find my style and struggling between what "art school" wanted me to do and what my heart really wanted to do. I'm so glad I chose to follow my joy 💜 I wish more young folks knew that art school isn't always the right place for those of us who paint fantasy, pop surreal, or "pretty girls with flowers". Unfortunately "beautiful" and "pretty" are usually dirty words in art academia 😕 It would have been nice if they'd told me this at my portfolio review instead of during my first year. In retrospect I probably should have dropped out but unfortunately I was completely brainwashed into thinking I needed a college degree to have any chance at a successful happy life. So many of my art friends and colleagues from around the world have shared a very similar art school experience with me. It's such a shame that the majority of these professors and schools are so narrow minded about what "art" is and should be. Art shouldn't be anything at all aside from what the artist creating it wants in my opinion! It seriously depresses me how they take these wide eyed teens and early 20 somethings, rip their work to shreds and attempt to force them into seeing art in a very narrow minded way. It took me two years after graduation before I was able to confidently pick up a paintbrush again and another three years before I realized f-this, I'm just going to paint goddesses and fairies from now on! My biggest piece of advice to people looking to get a BFA, make sure you do some serious research about the school you want to attend. Research their alumni as well. Research the curriculum too! Also, understand that you probably will learn little to nothing about the business of being a professional artist.
Ok that's the end of my rant ❤️🎨 I just hate seeing this happen!
