“To be an artist, one must first live.” – Unknown
I read this quotation yesterday and immediately identified myself with it. So simple, but in my current situation I find it very true.
I believe to be an artist, it’s not a decision, more a lifestyle. The life you live and all the experiences, the things happening to you and how you react on them is what actually makes you an artist. I don’t exactly see it as a profession, but more a way of living your life.
To be able to give emotions thru art, it’s a must to experience depth, to go high, to be the happiest and the saddest person on Earth and feel the vibration, the magic of the Universe. Without this, artworks will be only plane and empty… Perfection is not enough. I would rather be imperfectly crazy, than perfectly normal. x
