If you’re an Asian dabbling in the arts, now is the time to man up and charge forward full throttle. NOW is finally the beginning of mainstream presence for Asians worldwide. Let’s take a look at a few legends in the making that are paving the way:
Pop/Hip-Hop Group Far East Movement who opened for Lady Gaga in Japan and went double platinum with 2 million sales of their track ‘Like a G6’.
No not Kobe, but the king of Taiwanese/Chinese pop Jay Chou who recently starred alongside Seth Rogen in ‘The Green Hornet’, which made $33 million in its opening weekend.
Alexander Wang, talented fashion designer adored by many influential artists including Rhianna and Kanye West.
And of course there are many others. Ten years ago (or even five years back), such stars / collaborations simply didn’t exist for Asians in a white-dominated society. Asians were perceived simply as unnecessarily smart math geeks and kung fu specialists. Now there are smart, talented Asians and Asian-Americans dominating their industries all over the world. Needless to say, this is an inspiring time for all Asian artists.
Perhaps it’s the fact that more and more people all over the world are recognizing the power and influence of China, given the fact that nearly half the world resides there. In other words, China equals a treasure chest of cash, cash, and more cash… and every one wants in on this nearly untapped market.
Regardless, this is an encouraging time for Asians worldwide. Slap on your confidence and take that leap forward. This is YOUR time.
