I am very interested in the art world.
What it takes to "make it" in the art/star system?
I want some advice on what you think are basic steps to become a highly sought after artist. What it takes to sell your art for top dollar?

For example:

1. Never give away your art for free
2. Kiss ass
3. sell your art to someone famous
4. Shock
5. Be friends with art critics
6. Be good/original (duh!)
...

Please add your advice

Sell the most expensive piece of art of all made by any artist alive. (the skull with diamonds.)

Years later, everyone finds out it was your own art dealer/agent who bought the art. Demian Hirst did that.

Andy Warhol said that if you portrait famous people, famous people will make you famous.

-I think Gay is another quality. (I will include that I don't think there is anything wrong with that.)
-Left Handed
-Psychic
-a Old Soul
-the obvious "Famous"

If you are looking to be Rich, well I think you should start another topic. Rich and Famous only comes to the very "Lucky".

Postmortem Remarks:

This is one of those questions that makes me cringe
If all you want is to be famous, Then date a kardashian or get on a reality show
Because that's how hollow you probably are?

If you want to be an "Artist" & actually have any talent, Then just do it for the Art
because only 1 percent find any fame in it & then usually after you die....

Sperm Whale said it also, I am with him.

Enjoy your "Fame".
