Hi LG, thanks for joining us today. Are you happier as a creative? Do you sometimes think about what it would be like to just have a regular job? Can you talk to us about how you think through these emotions?
Yes, I am a Los Angeles-American artist and global-nomadic creative. I enjoy the freedom and self-expression that comes with the calling. Being a self-professed ‘Capitalist Realist,’ post-consumer, post-truth, trans-dimensional artist is thrilling.
On most days, I’m simply broke and gobsmacked…
While I was satisfied and enjoying the freedom and self-expression that came with the life of an internationally recognized post-conceptual artist a few years ago, I also wondered what it would be like to have a regular day job. This curiosity is why, in 2016, I became the Founder and CEO of an entirely new creative venture or hyper-conceptual approach to art-world-building known as Prosperity Aesthetics™ International. With Prosperity Aesthetics™ International (PA™ for short), I could share and teach millions of confused but emerging young artists and miserable-but-incredibly-wealthy executives how to seek out and find true artistic and financial rewards in today’s ridiculously lucrative contemporary Art world….
Voyage LA: Today we’d like to introduce you to LG Williams. Hi LG, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
LG Williams: I’ve been asked this question a lot during my adult daycare residency’s afternoon Arts and Crafts program—especially after my year-long, worldwide artist lecture tour and subsequent acceptance into the Post-Conceptual/Post-Commodity Revisionist-Art Hall of Fame in Carmel, CA.

We had the good fortune of connecting with LG Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below:
LG, what is the most important factor behind your success / the success of your brand?
“At the Enchanted Hunters Senior Retirement Village (overlooking Forest Lawn atop the Hollywood Hills), I’ve now scrapped Post-Performative Art—to become ‘The Distinguished AARP Resident of Neo-Post-Performative Art.’ I’m thrilled. By the way, this artistic accolade is one of the most unusual and elevated leisure distinctions found in today’s expansive Senior Living communities. I finally feel I can make my dreams and passions come alive. I’ll tap into my unlimited creative potential after Bingo night in this vital role—just like in the Hollywood movies…”
