Becoming a painter is not an easy task. You need to have a raw base, i.e., artistic skills within you to become a painter. If you are not good at drawing or sketching, then becoming a painter is going to be a successful venture for you. It is important for you to understand that anybody can paint, but how well a person is painting is going to decide whether he/she can choose painting as a full-term career or not.
Take Nyauw Gunarto for example, he is one of the top painters in the world today, but he identified his painting skills at a very small age. He used to paint on walls, and his teacher saw him painting one day, and decided to put him to an art school in Semarang. He improved his painting skills in that art school, and then, he started painting in a more professional way. He earned a lot through his paintings, but he never let his talent come over his head.
After securing himself financially, he started working for the people, improving the lives of those who don’t have enough resources. He took the initiative of educating unprivileged children, took care of elderly people living in old age homes and done many more similar activities.
But, his main focus was to protect nature from the wrath of mankind. At one point, all of his paintings were made on nature in which he showed how people have ruined nature. His paintings are really good and will make people think as to what they have done to something that has given them so much. Nyauw Gunarto is a big artist that comes from a small town of Semarang, Indonesia, which is why you will find in some of his paintings that his name is written as Nyauw Gunarto Semarang. He is a great painter and a beautiful human being.
