My take on...
"So what does it mean to be an artist?"
There are a few standard ways in which the word ‘artist’ is used. Some people use it to refer to a profession. So if someone is a doctor by profession and at the same time is an amateur but passionate painter he cant be called an artist! Some people refer to a person with a talent in any of the arts field as an artist. For example anyone who sings or paints or dances automatically is called as an artist. So is being an artist is about being in a particular profession or having a particular talent? My answer is neither. For me being an artist is an attitude that seeks to judge less and understand more, thus expanding the seekers mind.
A few videos that I liked
There are a lot of videos that I come across on the internet on a daily basis. Here are some of my favourite videos on art and life. Talk by celebrated Korean author Young Ha Kim on unleashing one’s creativity. Author of Eat, Pray, Love on the way to carry on creating irrespective of the outcome. Tim Minchin talks about life with loads of humor. Dr Devdutt Patnaik talks about myth, or subjective truth.
