Can shy people make a good career in art?

We posted this question on our Instagram on 30th April 2021, here are the answers offered by our followers:

  1. I think yes – if the work can carry their voice ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ”ฅ Maybe it could be used to an advantage, like Banksy who makes work silently. But being confident and heard in the sector helps to be noticed. Fake it till you make it as they say!
  2. Yes ๐Ÿ™Œ once you start to talk about your passion you gain momentum and confidence even if itโ€™s for only the moment you need it. ๐Ÿ”ฅ Recharge your batteries and do it all again a continuous cycle. Thatโ€™s how it is for me ๐Ÿ˜‚
  3. As someone who can be shy/socially awkward, I hope so. Itโ€™s really sold that itโ€™s networking that helps you get noticed and gets you contacts ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–
