Everyone is an Artist
The statement Joseph Beuys makes in this video pretty much sums it up for me. Every human being is an artist. I don't only call artists those people who are painters or who play the piano. Or who are composers or writers. To me, a nurse is also an artist So is a doctor or a teacher And so is a student, or any young person responsible for his own development. The essential definition of a human being is that of "artist." All other definitions of the word "art" lead back to the idea that there are artists and non-artists Of people who can do something and others who can't.
