In a year when the art world was reeling from the election of Donald Trump, one artist was looking for a way to stay relevant and inspire his art.
“We have all been affected by this election.
I feel very fortunate to have a platform that is open to all,” said Ashish Bhandari, a former fashion photographer who’s now an independent portrait artist.
“People are really inspired to work on their projects because it has to be authentic and authentic and true.
They want to see someone who has been through it.”
Bhandari says he wants his work to be as authentic and real as possible, so he’s looking for an authentic and genuine portrait artist to do it for him.
“I don’t want a portrait that’s done in a photo booth,” he said.
“I want a photographer who has had a real life experience, a real face to go and see the work.
I want it to feel real.
I think a good portrait should feel real to the person looking at it.”
He’s looking to hire a portrait artist who has a real person, but a real history and a real background.
He doesn’t want an artist who’s trying to be someone who’s just a product or someone that they’ve created.
“When I started out, I was just trying to make money for my family, I didn’t really have a plan to do something meaningful or be something,” he explained.
“That’s the beauty of it.
You don’t have to be the next Katy Perry.
You can do anything.”
But he’s also looking for someone who wants to make a positive impact on the art community.
“The art world needs more artists that can really inspire people to do things that they can’t do in their normal lives,” he added.
“The arts world is changing rapidly.
There are a lot of people out there that don’t know how to take risks.
And the way we are now is that we are all stuck in a bubble,” he continued.
“It’s all so tightly regulated.
You have so many different things that you have to have.
You want to get into a room and have a conversation with somebody.
You’re so worried about who you’re going to be speaking to.
You need to have the courage to say something and have the guts to do so.”
So what’s the best way to find someone to work for?
Bhandri said he wants to find the right person for the job, but he’s going to give it a shot.
“He’s going in for an interview, he’s not going to leave without having a shot,” he told us.
“There is no way that he’s ever going to get through it without me being there.”
