Our How To Make It series continues this month with the ever-exciting and growing genre of street art. In our 25 Biggest Art Moments of 2012, we noted that street art continues to go mainstream through spreading online, various festivals worldwide, and paradigms shifting towards realizing the medium's power to influence positivity and social uplift.
We asked 10 street artists, two who are duos, to give us a "rule for success" in this challenging profession. As is the case with any creative career, there isn't one way to "make it," but there are pieces of advice to help guide the way. It's worth realizing that all of these artists transcend street art as a genre and work within it in various ways. Many also practice other mediums, show work in galleries, and paint indoors, as well. Their advice reflects their years of experience in street art, despite all of them practicing it in their own way.
Enjoy How To Make It: 10 Rules for Success From Street Artists, a selection of ideas and explanations that are applicable to any aspiring creative in any field.
