A long time ago... artists were rare and few. And all of them have
contributed a lot in the society in terms of culture. History is never
complete without them. In so many ways, they have made a difference and I
would say that Earth is dry without Arts. They made the world more
But today, a lot claim and think that they are an artist but only few of
them are genuine. And it's no longer clear... WHAT MAKES AN ARTIST...
I am a Fine Arts student but it doesn't assure me that I am an artist or
will become an artist. Maybe it's about time to define TRUE AND FALSE
As I observe the people who are so CALLED ARTIST... I realize that not all of them are.
A lot of them just want it coz it's cool...
Some things I realize of what TRUE ARTIST IS LIKE:
True Artists defends, false ones rebell
True Artists defy arrogance, false ones embrace it
True Artists can distinguish between fakeness and realness, false ones can't tell the difference
True Artists are smart, false ones are trying to be smart
True Artists are not measured by the arts they make but by the values they share
True Artists are weird, false ones are strange
True Artists are messy but organized, false ones are disoriented
True Artists are not conscious but yet aware of themselves, false ones are conscious and unaware
True Artists listens to all opinions but chooses which to accept, false ones chooses whom to listen and accept all opinions
True Artists know whom to listen, false ones don't
True Artists are optimistic, false ones are pessimist
True Artists appreciates, false ones criticize
True Artists are noticed, false ones wants to be noticed
True Artists are fun loving, false ones mocks
True Artists are deep, false ones are shallow
True Artists accepts reality, false ones live in fantasies
True Artists are secure, false ones search for it.
True Artists are selfless, false ones are selfish
True Artists value others, false ones are vain
True Artists are firm, false ones are weak
True Artists make use of time, false ones waste it
True Artists are productive, false ones are trying to produce
True Artists works under passion, false ones work under pressure
TRUE ARTISTS NATURALLY HAS HIS/HER IDENTITY, FALSE ONES ACQUIRE IT!
I know there's still more but maybe you can add. You may not agree with
me but this is what I got so far. A lot of us are pretentious but only
the True ones prevails. And I truly believe that...
ARTISTS ARE BORN... NOT MADE!!!
