Art Exchange - What is an Artist?

Rather strange thing I heard on CBC Radio Q tonight about art work being sold to clients as shares like the TSE. Here's the link. https://www.aexchange.net/

Thought I'd include this great You Tube Video a freind shared with me. Got me thinking about my Open Media Class. At the end of class we were asked to give thought to the question, " What is an artist?" Our Professor said one of the most common statements she hears is, that
" Artists are crazy. " I shared with a friend I had not heard any one say that directly to me but I have heard, " You artists all have a look about you.", and, " You're different."

Well we may look and act differently than the norm, heck may even be disturbed or disturbing but we aren't crazy! Here's some food for thought on the question.

Here's my broad definition of an artist. An artist is someone who puts her/his creativity and love into what they are creating.

Oh well now, I like that a lot!

I always loved what Picasso said about artists He said that we are all born artists and the thing is, learning how to continue being artists.

Thanks for your comment Betty!
