Born to Art
Is an artist born or made?
While you may be born an artist doesn’t mean you have discovered that being an artist is your dharma, or purpose in life. There are many distractions.
In the main, family and society follow a program of conformity, a rigid form of unrelenting pressure that does not support the artist and his work. An artist must not only possess talent, he must have the courage to manifest that talent in the world. Without an unbending will to create and continue creating, the artist is lost, and no one can save such a victim from himself.
