Vocational theories have been well developed; however, there is little research about the career development of advanced visual art professionals. Therefore, this research explores factors of the awareness of vocational traits, career decision-making, and career self-efficacy in the career development of advanced visual art professionals. Drawing inferences from Holland’s hexagon model, eight advanced visual art professionals were invited, including a visual artist, visual art designer, art historian, art reviewer, art administrator, art educator, art restorer, and art therapist. Qualitative research approach and subjective analysis are applied in this research. The results find three main factors which may influence career decision making, career self-efficacy, and perception of vocational types. They are the aesthetic atmosphere and support from parents and siblings, personal traits, including innate ability, interest, creativity, enthusiasm, perseverance, and leadership; and above all, inspiration from an important person, successful experiences, and taking advantage of opportunities. The research findings and suggestions are also provided.
