Ways of Being: Advice for Artists by Artists

James Cahill


What if you could sit down with your favourite artist and ask them anything you liked – Life? Work? Inspiration? Based on new interviews and archival material from a huge roster of artists, this book does exactly that. Is art a ‘career’, a vocation or something else entirely? Do you need a studio or a dealer, and how do you find one? Does financial success – or the lack of it – change you? Should you read the reviews? Encompassing every stage of an artist’s life – from early works to debut shows and mid- and late-career stages – this book allows artists to answer these key questions.
