An artist is a person engaged in an activity related to creating art, practicing the arts, or demonstrating an art. The common usage in both everyday speech and academic discourse is a practitioner in the visual arts only. The term is often used in the entertainment business, especially in a business context, for musicians and other performers (less often for actors). “Artiste” (the French for artist) is a variant used in English only in this context. Use of the term to describe writers, for example, is valid, but less common, and mostly restricted to contexts like criticism.
History of the Term
During the middle Ages the word artist already existed in some countries such as Italy, but the meaning was something resembling craftsman, while the word artesan was still unknown. An artist was someone able to do a work better than others, so the skilled Excellency was underlined, rather than the activity field. In this period some “artisanal” products (such as textiles) were much more precious and expensive than paintings or sculptures.
The first division into major and minor arts dates back at least to the works of Leon Battista Alberti (1404–1472): De re edificatory, De statue, De picture, which focused on the importance of the intellectual skills of the artist rather than the manual skills (even if in other forms of art there was a project behind).
Modern Concept of The term
Artist is a descriptive term applied to a person who engages in an activity deemed to be an art. An artist also may be defined unofficially as “a person who expresses him- or herself through a medium”. The word is also used in a qualitative sense of, a person creative in, innovative in, or adept at, an artistic practice.
Most often, the term describes those who create within a context of the fine arts or ‘high culture’, activities such as drawing, painting, sculpture, acting, dancing, writing, filmmaking, new media, photography, and music—people who use imagination, talent, or skill to create works that may be judged to have an aesthetic value. Art historians and critics define artists as those who produce art within a recognized or recognizable discipline. Contrasting terms for highly skilled workers in media in the applied arts or decorative arts include artisan, craftsman, and specialized terms such as potter, goldsmith or glassblower. Fine arts artists such as painters succeeded in the Renaissance in raising their status, formerly similar to these workers, to a decisively higher level, but in the 20th century the distinction became rather less relevant.
TIPS ON BECOMING A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST
In becoming a successful artist, one has to put his/herself in the shoes of a successful artist and make decisions that mirror the success.
- A successful artist has established achievable short term and long term goals. These established goals are written down and reviewed periodically by the artist in order to judge, grade and gauge themselves in achieving their goals.
- A successful artist is focused on their art and will not be distracted from their purpose and to their commitment in achieving their goals. To be successful at most things requires a focus and a “singleness of purpose.” Successful artists have this focus, as their art is a priority in their lives.
- A successful artist will have a passion for their art and a passion for everything else that is associated with being an artist. The passionate artist realizes that in order to be successful they will be required to do things like marketing, bookkeeping and selling, even when they rather be creating. They are willing to do these “operational” things because they know that it will get them closer to their achievable goals (see #1 above).
- A successful artist is professional in all of their dealings with the general public, with all gallery owners, with art reps and with suppliers. Why is this? The artist realizes that in order to market and become a brand a successful artist needs to be professional with everyone, in order to protect their brand. With social media, networking and viral media being what it is today, an artist can be minimized quickly through negative publicity and through negative digital media.
- A successful artist will identify, capitalize and leverage any opportunities that may come their way. Successful artists will see and take advantage of opportunities to network, promote and brand their artwork. The artist who is engaged and ready to capitalize on opportunities when they come along will be or will eventually become successful.
