Yu Kai Lin has been the owner and directer of Kai Lin Art gallery for over seven years. He not only curates in his gallery but has also assisted private collectors and organizations such as the High Museum of Art and Coca Cola. Yu Kai is also a concert pianist and teaches students of all ages how to play the piano. Listen to his story of how he persevered through the downturn of the economy when he was first starting his business and the tips he shares for artists who not only want to make a living as an artist but rather thrive as one.
- Get out and network. Meet with gallerists, curators and collectors to have those conversations about your artwork to see where you might be a good fit.
- When seeking gallery representation, do your homework to see if your artwork is in line with theirs and not conflicting with artists they already represent.
- Showing your work in a gallery is not the last step in making it in the art world but rather a single prong in one big ecosphere of art because of social media where you can build your own communities.
