This is how you survive in NY as an artist according to New York Native and Artist Linus Corragio:

  1. Keep making it
  2. Keep documenting it
  3. Keep showing it to other people, even if it is just your friends and family
  4. Go to galleries and meet other artists
  5. Try to bump into people
  6. Having a physical portfolio is not a bad thing
  7. Have cards that have your number on it and say you are an artist
  8. Try to exchange contact information with people who are older than you, people who know more about the art scene, those that might have ideas for your work
  9. Think outside of the box on where you can put your art (restaurants, and cafes are options to galleries
  10. Have website and invest in it
  11. Don’t give up.
