Scott Taylor has always had an artistic and creative personality but didn’t put brush to canvas full-time until just a few years ago. Prior to embarking on his own career in contemporary art, he had the idea to create a company that would help connect clients and patrons with local art. Taylor founded ColorPop Art Lab in 2012, which is essentially “a one-stop-shop” for commissioned art, where he also serves as Executive Creative.
It wasn’t until a friend, who also happened to be a local decorator, encouraged him to paint a piece to display in a Designer Showcase home, that he publicly shared his art. That first piece sold immediately and launched his career as a contemporary pop artist. Now, only four years later, he’s opened his own gallery on Cherry Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
He will be the first to admit that it hasn’t always been easy to make a living as an artist, but his entrepreneurial spirit and drive to boldly create have synergized; he has cracked the code for “How to make money as an artist” (the actual title of his podcast!). As you will learn, his artistic career is much like his personality; down-to-earth, engaging and interesting while demonstrating the characteristics of kindness, joy and positivity.
