Everybody has a job (to an extent), some more glamorous than others. If you, like many others, are stuck behind the desk of a meaningless occupation, taking time between keystrokes to let the mind dote on more creative pursuits, perhaps you’ll take comfort in the fact that some of the most revered names in the art world have been in the same position. Artinfo might be able to lend such perspective, having compiled the various odd jobs of Banksy (amateur soccer goalie), Mark Rothko (newspaper seller), Phillip Glass (plumber) and many more, that preceded their success. Enjoy the article, and remember that ‘being the change you want to see in the world’ can sometimes mean waiting tables – but not forever.
