A Working Class Artist Is Something to Be

Working class origins/roots or doing it for working class salaries?

At least for visual artists that I personally know (online and physical) most survive going from one commission or gig to another. It's not at all glamour. They're happy to be called in to exhibit their art at some festival with a group of other artists where they make at most a few sales. Rarely do I ever see them host a solo exhibit. Some entered the field after being disillusioned with a typical 9-5 job doing media communications or something remotely creative in the business world. They seem to have accepted their new lifestyle of non-standard working hours and relative financial insecurity.

Movies and musicians I don't know too much about.
