Article for French press about young artists struggles in Japan

I wrote a piece about the struggles of young artists when starting their career in Japan. If you speak French you can find the article and more in their special edition about Japan for their latest print of L'Hebdo.à-trouver-des-soutiens.html

Why young artists, a majority artists are struggling.. :-(

I totally agree! A translation mistake on my part this article is focused on artists in general, how they are trying to get their career started. I had the chance to talk with young artists and professionals to see the evolution within the last few years.
