3 years ago we featured Hong Kong painter Marc Allante’s artwork, showing how his artistic skills have improved since early childhood. Since then, he’s ceased his corporate chore and is now merrily doing art full day. We decided to reach out to him.
“I was in corporate finance and insurance, ” Allante told Bored Panda. “I lost my mother very abruptly to cancer which built me re-evaluate a lot of the priorities in my life. Ultimately, I felt that I would deeply regret not dedicating an art career a proper shot.”
“I think with enough practice and patience, anyone has the ability to learn to describe and create art. I was lucky enough to start very early and be encouraged by my family, but I don’t think it’s ever too late to give it a go! ”
“I am usually grinning like an moronic most of the time and the happiest I have been in a very long time. I think it’s rare for anyone to be able to make a living doing what they love so I know I have been stupidly fabulously lucky! At the same day, I am working harder than I have ever had in my life as I don’t want to rest on my laurels( or luck ). ”
