In this day and age, when art has become more of a commodity and art school graduates are convinced that they can only make a living from their work by attaining gallery representation, it is more important than ever to show the reality of how a professional, contemporary artist sustains a creative practice over time. The 40 essays collected here in Living and Sustaining a Creative Life are written in the artists’ own voices and take the form of narratives, statements and interviews. Each story is different and unique, but the common thread is an ongoing commitment to creativity, inside and outside the studio. Both day-to-day and Big Picture details are revealed, showing how it is possible to sustain a creative practice that contributes to the ongoing dialogue in contemporary art. These stories will inform and inspire any student, young artist and art enthusiast, and will help redefine what ‘success’ means to a professional artist.

Release Date: 2001
Genre: Art

Hideo Date (Hid-day-oh Dah-tay) is a painter ripe for rediscovery. An issei, he once described himself as an artist who scorned the strictly traditional in favor of a unique style, one characterized by an interest in sinuous line and bold color. Trained in Tokyo and Los Angeles, Date associated with avant-garde art circles in pre-World War II Los Angeles. He was a member of the influential West Coast Art Students League and a founding member of the Los Angeles Oriental Artists Group with artist friends Benji Okubo and Tyrus Wong. Together, these artists associated with the influential American painter Stanton MacDonald-Wright, who, in turn, looked to the art of Asia for inspiration. During the 1930s Date worked for the Federal Art Project of the Work Projects Administration (WPA), which commissioned him to paint a mural on Terminal Island in Southern California. The mural was never finished, due to the outbreak of war. Like many other issei and nisei artists, Date's incarceration during the war had an irreparable impact on his life and artistic career. While he continued to paint in camp at Heart Mountain, Wyoming, his career was derailed, and he never had another exhibition after the war. Later, Date resettled in New York City, where he still resides.This book, which pays tribute to the artist's courage, sense of fun, and pursuit of beauty, will at last give this accomplished and daring artist his due. It accompanies a special exhibition of Hideo Date's works at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles from October 26, 2001 to April 21, 2002.
