In recent years, artists from all over the world have been increasingly embracing the concept of “artist country”, a term first coined by artist Rich Hamilton.
Hamilton has since used the term to describe artists from his own country and across the world.
“We are so lucky to have so many people from around the world, who have this love of art and so much love for art, that they all come to Australia and make art,” Hamilton told The ABC.
The concept of artist country is a bit like a musical genre.
In the U.S., artists can perform in cities such as New York, LA, and Washington DC, and perform in major international festivals such as the Coachella Music and Arts Festival and the MTV Music Awards.
But in Australia, artists can choose to make their live performances and performances in their home country.
Artists can also use the term “artist city” to describe cities that are close to their home, and which have an artistic tradition.
For example, Hamilton said he had to “work a lot harder” to find his audience in New York because he was living in New Zealand.
“It was really hard to find a audience in NYC,” he said.
“There were just a few people that came up to me and said, ‘I want to come and see you perform’.
And I was like, ‘Yes!
It’s so awesome!'”
In the United States, there are two major artistic trends: “post-post” and “postmodern” (post-modernist).
“Post-post is where artists come out of the closet, into the public, and say, ‘Look, I’m not ashamed of what I do, and I’m proud of it.
I’m an artist, and we’re not ashamed.'”
Hamilton said the artists in Australia often come out with their music “as soon as possible after they’ve left the closet”.
“It’s a way to get people to feel comfortable and to say, okay, I know this is who I am.
I don’t have to hide my identity anymore.”
“Postmodern artists” can be found in music, film, fashion, design, and theatre.
“Post modern artists are very much about doing things that are postmodern, they’re postmodern art, they don’t like the rules of the conventional way of doing things,” he added.
Artist country is about artists taking their own artistic vision and putting it into reality, according to Hamilton.
“The best artists don’t necessarily have the money or the money, or the time or the talent to make the kind of records or the kind a lot of people want to see,” he explained.
“They just want to make art.”
He said Australia has “an incredible number of artists who come from all different cultures and have different backgrounds”.
The difference between artists and “ordinary” Australians is that artists are often “sitting on the edge of the barrel” in terms of their ability to make money, according Hamilton.
In Australia, he said, artists are encouraged to pursue careers that allow them to “make the best money they can”.
“You have to take the risks to make something that’s really special, and then if it doesn’t work, it doesn and that’s the end of it,” he advised.
Hamilton said that he has worked with many artists over the years.
“In New York you have people that are very talented and very experienced and they have a lot to offer,” he told The Australian.
“You can do a lot in one year and you might be a very successful person, but in two years you might not have a job.”
“I have seen people who are not good at music and they can make something amazing and it takes four years for it to happen.”
Hamilton said artists should “just make something and do it”.
“Make art and then be a part of it.”
He explained that artists in the U, Canada, and the UK have a wide range of career options.
“I know from speaking to so many of them, they do have a variety of things they can do in a lot different ways,” he says.
I just think they need to have that flexibility and the freedom to do whatever they want to do.” “
And I know many of those people are very, very talented.
I just think they need to have that flexibility and the freedom to do whatever they want to do.”
“Artist country” is an opportunity to be creative and be creative in your own way, while respecting other cultures, according the Australian Artist Centre’s John Skelton.
“Artists and artists come to this country for a reason and that reason is to make a living,” he explains.
“This is not just a place where you come and work for a couple of years and then move to New York.
This is a place that gives you the opportunity, the opportunity for a career.” S
