We had the good fortune of connecting with Stille Skygger and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Stille, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
After working in art production for many years, I started working in various places such as Art companies, Art Festivals, Artist in Residence programs. I felt the need to do something after seeing all the knowledge, experiences, shortcomings and unmet expectations as an Artist that I gained “behind the scenes” of Art Business. And I started to think about how I could make all these works more useful for artists… What are the needs of Artists? What do artists expect from companies? What are the contributions that companies can make to artists and artists to companies?

After analyzing what can be done for a long time, I founded this brand in order to deconstruct the bridge between an artist and an art institution on a more solid foundation. As an artist and founder of Art company, I think that being someone who knows the expectations, contributions and functioning of both parties has been the basis of the greatest success of our brand.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
As I mentioned in another question, this process was long and quite difficult for me. it’s a very utopian concept that you started painting as an 8-year-old and decided to become a painter. All my junior high school life, I used to take art classes at school for hours after school. Although it may seem quite difficult for you to concentrate on such a job when your peers are playing outside, it was a very enjoyable process for me. At this time, I started going to exhibitions and festivals and getting basic information about painting. I thought that I would become a professional painter in the future, and I did, but I never thought that I would work with other artists in the Art Business. But when you work on something over the years, you discover that it has the ability to change shape. This process has been a very long and very sacrificial process. And it still is, but now that I’ve accepted it as part of the job, it doesn’t pose much of a problem to me. We are constantly creating new projects, thinking about them, adapting and working on how we can provide more services to new artists and collectors.

The lessons I’ve learned along the way are dual, both from an artist’s point of view and an art business point of view. The first is that you really, really need to work hard, you need to make a very serious sacrifice behind producing art, our work does not include such things as a 9.00 – 17.00 layout, weekend holidays, annual holidays. While everyone is on vacation, you have to sit down and finish what you started, because you have an exhibition to catch up with. Even if you get used to this order, your friends and family can be offended by you, because you can’t take your time. But if you have the determination and passion to resist all these processes, you are getting the best reward for your sacrifice. When you see photos of your works in your customers’ homes and offices, the happiness you experience becomes the best gift for you.

And the other “hard to swallow” truth is, in today’s world, there are a lot of distracting tools, we have phones, computers, tablets, cables, etc. All of this pushes us to mechanize, butour work requires a heart. If you are open to all this distraction, hard working hours and constant, but constant improvement, then there comes a success. It’s a success that you’ve paid for all along.

The first thing we want to know about our brand is that our team is made up of a large number of artists. In other words, there are people “in the kitchen” who will know the basic needs of an artist. We are trying to find the most suitable systems to meet these needs.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Oh, actually, there are a lot of people I can tell. At first, it was my teacher who directed me to Painting when I was 8 years old, my second Painting teacher who encouraged me to participate in festivals in my , of course, my family, and my really hard-to-find friends. I think team spirit and team passion are the “sine qua non” of this job. We are doing art work, and art requires heart and soul. We have very busy working hours and a lot of projects, and no one works without complaining. I would say that there are many invisible heroes behind this success. And I think that all our artists who work with us are also entitled to this category. Because as a result, we wouldn’t have been able to run this business so well without their support.
