Interview with Wang Ling


Wang Ling
Artist

When did you begin creating art? Why?
About 5 years ago, when I was still a student in college.
One day I just came up with some great ideas but had no way to share them with others, then I decided to learn painting, I just want to paint my dreams.

What is the most challenging thing about being an artist and how do you face it?
No one taught me how to paint and I should learn all of them by myself in limit time. Read books, search painting video on youtube, browse gallery of other artist.

It`s really a hard time in the first two years, I paint ugly and friends laugh at me, they said it`s ridiculous to paint as an engineer student. Several times I almost gave up and thought I can never paint something good.

What is the most challenging thing about being an artist and how do you face it?
I don`t know any tricks, I just want to tell people like me, when you feel like giving up, think about why you held on for so long in the first place.
