Literally, I would never say anyone’s non-artistic because in my point of view, everything’s a piece of art. For example, the mug you’re drinking from, the design of a telephone, your clothing, book covers, photo frames and etc., the list may go on and on, because there isn’t one object you can say that is not a piece of art. Artists must be creative, in order to have their work displayed uniquely, and they gain their creativity from different perspectives of life they see it as. I, as an artist, can clearly state that I gain my creativity from basically everything I see. Because I don’t walk myself into a wall, I walk myself through a wall. Which in fact, all artists should be doing. Even if you read a poem, you can’t just read it and understand the meaning of it, you have to think outside the box. Although I’m not sure if everyone has an inspiration, I’m pretty sure I do myself. Everything inspires me, from how people can do such great big artworks to the detailed tea cups they sell in Lane Crawford. These inspirations push me towards wanting to create unique artworks to have it displayed in an art gallery for viewers to admire it one day. As far as I’ve focused myself more into the subject of art, I discovered that the one and only element that really inspires me is simply a pencil. Yes, a pencil that you’ll use once you get into education. As a kid, I wouldn’t have thought that pencils would be a huge element in art, because to me a pencil just produced some dull color that I didn’t like. As I grew up and used pencil to shade in different contrast and values, I’ve discovered that a pencil is probably the only thing you’ll need to shade in obvious contrast of a picture. Also, by far, I have been pretty satisfied with my black and white artworks that were done in art class. Since I can’t be bothered than having to use an element that’s hard to control, for example watercolors. To me, watercolors and soft pastels are hard to control elements in art, because they’re elements where you can’t erase or cover with another layer. Say like acrylic, even if you make a mistake, you can always cover it with another layer because it’ll be thick enough to cover the layer under it. However, even though I like to use pencil, I tend to avoid using color pencils. To me, color pencils aren’t the best elements to create color, but oil pastels are. Oil pastels creates an effect where you can smudge and fade out, but as for color pencils, you can’t. Therefore, pencils would be my favorite element for black and white portraits and oil pastels would be my other favorite element for any other colorful artworks that needs to be drawn. To conclude, anyone’s an artist. It only depends whether they believe themselves as one, because the most important factor of being a good artist is that you have to believe in yourself first in order for others to believe that you’re a good artist that can do fashionable artworks.
