Last Thursday artists and graphic designers gathered at ILIA Academy to learn more about their future career path. Yes! “artists have career paths,” Ghiabi says. Watch the statement below:
In the Middle East between 2014 and 2018, the capital invested in the art market grew by 2.5x. Hedge funds focused on contemporary art in the Middle East are showing a minimum of 20% to 80% return on investment. The investments are low risks as there is no correlation between the art market and the stock market. And guess what? Almost 40% of the contemporary art pieces are from Iranian artists. In the session, Reza Ghiabi talked about the following:
- How to live differently as an artist?
- What inspires innovation?
- How to create and narrate stories for the art pieces?
- How to build our career path?
- How to earn social capital?
We hope that with the help of ILIA Academy, newbie artists can express what they want to communicate with more light on the career path.
