Art and Artists At Work

As of 2011, there were approximately 4.4 million artists in the world, with a thin line drawn between those that can be classified as Professional and those who are Recreational artists. The amount spent on art-related materials and services is approximately $4B every year with a projected 4% growth annually.

Professional artists create, on the average, 75 works of art annually while Recreational artists do 36 pieces.

“Art will remain the most astonishing activity of mankind born out of struggle between wisdom and madness, between dream and reality in our mind.” ~Magdalena Abakanowicz

These are some of the artists and art that I’ve encountered in my travels
