Artist Danny Fox is a proper example of a self-made artist. He used to wash dishes for years in order to buy art supplies, and today his work can be seen in numerous solo exhibitions that are sold out as soon as they are announced.
“Everything that can be taught in a school is available in books,” he said in an interview withMetal Magazine. “I studied the masters first because they were the only ones in the very small library where I grew up. All those books were full of men and women who had lived extraordinary lives. I began to think this was more necessary than formal art education. Also, I didn’t do well at school, which combined with strange things happening in my life, the decision was made for me.”
His art is a testimony to the importance of hard work, proving that if you’re dedicated and patient, nothing can stop you from making your dreams come true.
