Some talents want to be artists for the sake of being labeled as “artist”. Some of them might well be called phonies because they just come out with out-of-this-world ideas and showcase them as art – pretending that it is of high artistic value.
I believe that art should have a purpose and works should not be absurd. Artists’ works should have concrete messages in them. They have a social responsibility that their works should reflect what’s happening in the society or should influence people in seeing what’s going on around. Their works should reflect their soul and innermost beliefs and philosophy in life.
Being born an artist is a gift. A blessing no one should ever take granted for nor keep it for themselves alone.
The best thing about being an artist is self-expression. I guess self-expression enables me to be totally free and I am most free with my art in my left hand and with my heart in the other.
