Hi,

I have heard so many good things about the art scene in Montreal, I am thinking about moving there from Toronto. But I am not really sure if it would be a good idea or not scince I do not know french and I do not know anybody over there.
I am persuing art individually, that's why I am seeking for a great atmosphere to work on.

I am attaching some of my art works, so they whould show my art perspective.

I really appreciate if anyone can help me in this decision.

Thanks,
Arash

Art may be one of those rare fields that go beyond language.
Why not get your art displayed in a few art galleries here in Montreal then see what reactions you get.

There is a place called "Yes Montreal." They have courses and a book for artists. With the internet you may not have to entirely rely on any gallery.
I would get some art business studies under your belt and go
from there. Montreal is probably a lot cheaper to live than Toronto but you
will be limited in jobs perhaps not knowing French. Unless you become a janitor,
sell something on line, work in a call center. Your art is very interesting and very good. Learn how to market yourself.
