An artist is a person engaged in one or more of any of a broad spectrum of activities related to creating art practicing the arts and/or demonstrating an art.
I was watching a Noisey documentary the other day about A$AP Rocky and he kept referring to himself as an artist and I thought to myself, yes. This is someone who is an artist. Not only is he a rapper, but makes his own beats and is basically a walking work of art (have you seen him ever not dressed head to toe? also his instagram) That is an artist, everything about you is expressive, everything you put out is thought out, meaningful and original.
I feel the same way about Rihanna, I think she is literally a walking masterpiece and although you may not agree with everything she wears, does or says I think her life is art.
I feel like a lot of creative people are like this, maybe you’re an actor, but you also love architecture and could get lost in a clothing store putting together the perfect outfit. Not because you’re vain (ok maybe a little) but because you want to make sure your clothing really, truly expresses you, your attitude, your thoughts, your dreams and aspirations and especially your mood. That’s why I always find it so difficult when people ask me about my style, its always changing.
One day I might feel like a high schooler on the beaches of Florida and wear the smallest article of clothing I can find, sometimes I’ve feeling regal and want to bury myself in a turtle neck and sensible boots, and other days I feel like a college girl whose had too many shots and we know where that leads. The point is creative people create many things and appreciate art and beauty whether it be in a painting, a blog, a nail polish color, even a beautiful plate of food.
