"Whatever you want to do it can be done, but it is going to take a lot of hustle and hard work. Those two words proactive and hustle...are ingrained in me. That is what I live by."
When South African artist Conor Mccreedy arrived in New York City, he didn't know a single person and spent Friday nights on the street reserving a spot so he could sell his paintings for as little as $20 a piece in New York's Union Square market on Saturdays. A year later he became the youngest artist ever to have a solo exhibition at the National Arts Club in New York City. Hustling and being proactive helped his rise, and both traits have always been a part of his story. He draws inspiration from the African landscapes of his childhood and the cities he visits, and is skilled at connecting with audience online wherever he goes. A man on the move, we were grateful to get him to sit still for this interview!
