As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary of the Wooster Collective website. we asked a group of artists who we showcased in the beginnings of the website the following question:
What's the one thing that you learned in the last decade that you had wished someone had told you 10 years ago?
The following response comes from one of our favorite people in the street art scene, Galo.
"The one thing that I learned long time ago is to respect and be curious about what other artists do and never ever be in competition with anyone...
Never being jealous or criticize the career, the decisions and the style of other artists...being sure of what you are doing or being sure about yourself and know that what you are doing is right and pure...
Never make art for money but let the money come in the direction of your art and life.
Struggle and fight every day about your freedom as an artist and forget about the roller coaster of emotions that life imposes to everyone..
Always be happy and instinctive about what you are doing or just stop, skin up and start again...".... Galo
