We are fortunate and grateful to have the most wonderful community of Make Art That Sells (MATS) graduates, comprising thousands of talented artists across the world. We challenged them to create their very own manifesto for the MATS courses and their enthusiastic response was amazing! Below is Tjarda Borsboom‘s manifesto, which perfectly summarises Lilla’s recipe for success for growing as an artist.
