PAY THE ARTIST

A short collaborative video addressing the exploitation of artistic labour

No matter if you paint, sign or write, you are an artist who is working hard and with great persistence to enrich the world with beautiful art. It is a meaningful job that brings value to society and uneasy profession as all other kinds. Yet, you face dismissal, and rejection to be rewarded for the work you have done. Your art is not worth appropriate pay in eyes of some. Who makes art for money? It can´t be that difficult anyway! 

Pay the Artist is a short video created in collaboration with fellow creatives to address the exploitation of artistic labour. Aiming to show the true nature of creative labour, we invite you all behind the scenes of artistic practice. Furthermore, we want to encourage artists to continue what they love to do.
