The Artist as Entrepreneur

Home / The Artist as Entrepreneur

TheArtian is back on Campus with our monthly Art & Tech event; this month with a presentation on the artist as entrepreneur by Oscar Gimenez. While we tend to think about artists and entrepreneurs as different communities, they are actually more similar than we think. Entrepreneurs and artists are, in many ways, alike – they are both visionaries, push boundaries, are passionate and inspiring. We wrote about in the past and now we are bringing a real testimonial and first-hand experience.

Oscar Gimenez is an artist and illustrator who took the concept of music critique and have approached it in a new way: instead of photogrpahs, illustrations. Later on he went to develop it as standalone project and a book. During this journey he developed new “products”, used technologies to bring them to life and positioned his art in a desirable place.

In his talk Oscar will share his experience from this journey and through his story he will deal with questions such as:

  • How technologies help artists and how to utilize existing platforms to progress
  • What are the difficulties he encounters as artist and how he dealt with them
  • How artists are developing new “products” and “services”

THE CONVERSATION WILL TAKE PLACE IN SPANISH.
