Question by sooperhiway: Can a self taught artist of paintings become an established artist? How?
Is it necessary to have a BFA and a MFA to become an established artist in India? Does art education play an important role? Is is necessary to have a degree and masters in your portfolio description for people to appreciate your paintings.
Can a self taught artist become an established artist if he has great talent? If he holds exhibition after exhibition, and on the strenght of his art alone, can he prove his art to the world, that education is not everything, inborn talent can also prevail.

Art is art my friend. Van gough painting in a run down shack and died poor. Andy warhol practised in bed with a pen and some magazines.
Picasso taught himself from a young age. Don’t worry about education, if you are a good artist, the attention will be brought to you.
