The art market in Australia is notoriously volatile, with a lot of artists struggling to find a way to make a living from their art.
With the current economic climate, however, a lot more artists are finding success.
But where will the money go?
How much can a local artist make?
To find out, we spoke to industry experts about the art world, including the artists themselves.
Artists’ salaries are growing, but are they earning enough?
We spoke to artist and business consultant Ben West and he said the average Australian artist earns about $150,000, but that can vary from artist to artist.
“It depends on the style and what the artist has in mind.
It’s really dependent on the kind of artist that you are, how much money they are willing to pay, and what their goals are.”
“The artist has to be able to do it for themselves and the community.
It depends on where they are from, what they do and what they’re passionate about.”
That’s what makes this art market so volatile, and so important to the success of a local talent.
If you are an artist and you can’t find a local job, it could mean a whole new life for you.
How do I get started?
The Australian Art Council’s (AAC) job placement scheme will help you get the work you want, from a local gallery to a museum or gallery.
The scheme gives an artist the opportunity to apply for a job from a gallery, museum or art gallery and get it from there.
The AAC’s website will give you information on how to apply, how to contact the gallery, how long the job will take and what fees to pay.
Once you have applied for a gallery job, you will be given a job offer and a copy of the application.
If the artist is accepted, the gallery will pay the artist for the artwork and arrange for the delivery of the artwork to the artist’s studio.
The artist will then work with the gallery on the artwork, and the artwork will be delivered to the gallery’s studio to be painted.
The gallery will then pay the artwork for a set period of time, usually two to three weeks, after the artist completes the artwork.
Artists can get paid for a period of up to three months, depending on the number of hours they work, according to the AAC.
There are a range of other benefits for artists, including: a chance to sell their work online for a lower price, for example
