So I am having difficulty accepting this idea that “to be an artist, you must not say/think that you are an artist”
. . . whaaaat?
I can understand people not knowing they are an artist… IN FACT, nobody knows they are an artist at first- but anyone can art, so doesn’t that mean that anyone can say that they are an artist?
This idea that is thrown around is pretty discouraging, so I’m challenging it.
