Spread 145 – Express Your Self September 19, 2011Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Elusive as it may seem, there is a fine line between the natural assimilation of visual information that later transpires unconsciously in one’s artwork and the blatant replication of art already created by others. Simpler said, there is a thick line between inspiration and plagiarism. That line is not that elusive, it’s clear! Be done with denial and get ready to allow the original you to emerge however daunting of a process it may seem. You’ve got to be brave, for your own sake, for the sake of others, and for the sake of plain old honesty and integrity! Get some guts and go on your own journey to find the innate creative being that you are, be yourself, for as you probably heard before (by Oscar Wilde): “Everyone else is already taken.” Seriously, many work hard their whole life to become fluent in their very own invented intimate visual language, don’t just take it and claim that it’s yours, it’s beyond ‘not nice’. Besides who wants their art to look like other’s art…really?
