At our last gallery meeting, a very important topic came up regarding artistic influence and style. The gallery had received submissions from a young and very new artist whose work, while good, was dancing a fine line in the realm of artistic plagerism. His style of portraits was a little too strikingly similar to that of a late and famous contemporary artist. A useful discussion followed on artist ethics, and the laws the protect both artists' work and their ideas. While as artists we are all naturally influenced by the beauty in the art we appreciate, there's always the risk of plagerism in both copying someone's innovative and unique style, and the innovative ideas artists share with the world.
Art is so personal. It is so important as an artist to be a voice, not an echo of someone else. While I whole heartedly encourage anyone to pursue art if there is interested and passion for it, but especially as you start out, while tempting to copy work and ideas that you appreciate, be sure you're living an artistic life of integrity and bringing forth your very own voice as an artist. Be impeccable with your word as well as your art. Be inspired from within, and you will find you won't need to plagerize others' specific and unique ideas to find your way in the art world. My thoughts for the day I wanted to share. Want to hear more thoughts from my small corner of the art world? Subscribe to my art blog, link in bio ❤️
Anyway, I've been going through my old portfolio lately and this was the start of the self portrait that I started in college, with an accompanying poem I posted with a Klimt image I discovered only recently. This is indeed the year I finish it, and I've amended the poem somewhat to share a glimpse of the transformation I've experienced since having the vision for this piece 🦋
Thank you to everyone who participated in the poll to help me decide which stylistic direction I'm going to be taking my next collection, including finishing this piece in the near future. Thank you always to all the artists who create from a place of inspiration and integrity that keeps the art culture a beautiful space to create 💙 #artandpoetry#artistlife#arton
