How to spot an Artist

And while meeting numerous different people in daily life, how do you spot an artist – these feature enlisted below surely make him/her stand out in the crowd even if you haven’t seen their art for real, these points will tell you he/she is an artist at heart!

1. Procrastinators

An artist will jump into a work that he feels moved by and will finish it no time or will not pause unless it’s finished. They might do stuff at their own convenient hours but those hours are only the hours when he has finally convinced himself to finally do it!

2. See beauty in every damn thing

  See beauty in something as simple as a new haircut

Artists are the people for whom this quote was written “Beauty lies in the eyes  of the beholder” An artist can even call a really old, half eaten by termites  door beautiful and call it vintage! Some of them who are fond of photography  can even plan an entire photo shoot around it.

 3. Appreciative

Know the value of compliments and   know how exactly to use them at the  right places for the right kind of work or  people. They know the feeling they get  when someone appreciates their art and therefore feel this moral obligation to return the favor, but despite of all this ,  they only compliment what they really feel is amazing ( But mostly they are quick at complementation coz they find beauty in almost everything – see point above)

4. Turn the meaning of hard-times upside down

Hard times? Pain? Problems? = Opportunities for an artist

Trust me on this. If an artist is going through a tough phase in life you will see it all over in their work of art. And probably that’s what gives them the strength of overcoming that phase. Many of the most iconic stories and songs of all time have been inspired by gut-wrenching pain and heartbreak. This doesn’t mean that they are sad people; instead they are happier clan of people because they can see a silver lining even in their toughest times and create a master piece out of it.

 

 

5. Experimental

They are always ready to try out something new and gladly absorb anything unique that comes their way. Because they are always looking for inspiration and look forward to admire more beauty that’s spread all around in the world.

6. Not typed

They don’t have set standard templates to do thing in life. They don’t follow rules nor do they make any. They believe in spirituality and hence the freedom of mind and soul also they let their minds wander and follow their instincts. They don’t go by recipes instead mix up things that they “feel” like and present it with acute sense of art and knowledge of flavors thus almost always ending up in a great feast

7. Less confused

Seldom do they have those Brains vs Heart conflicts because they mostly think with their hearts and let their brains go to hell.  Doesn’t mean they don’t have brains but they prefer to follow what their heart coz that’s where their true self lies.

8. Value sentiments more than diamonds

Because they believe in making a handmade card to give you on your Bday rather than diamond bracelet since all the time they will take in creating that piece of art will be the time they will spend on thinking only about you! They would go and sit with a bunch of sadhus at a chai shop because their dress and everything else looks so interesting rather than fine dining in an intricate restaurant. And even if they are in the latter situation, they will talk about the ambience more than the crowd.

9. Self-expressive

They are overtly self-expressive, sometimes more than required but that doesn’t count for their self-obsession. Just because they can’t keep many things in their heart and it has to come out if not in spoken words then in their art. You can easily guess their state of mind with their art and so they are just the most genuine and honest people you will find on earth.

10. Consultants

They have been through so much already , more because they have experienced every significant moment of their life twice- one how it was actually happening and another when they were transforming it into an art piece. They have deeply felt every single strand of emeotion that lufe presented wthme with and thus are an ocean of all kinds of feelings that exist. If you go to them with a problem they will not tell you to do what society will feel correct but what will make ‘you’ happy! They will also pick your call at 4am and sit up and listen to all that you have to share with attention as of they were never waken up in middle of their sleep.  Some of them might also derive inspiration from your pain for their own art 

If you know any of such people in your life – ‘have’ them! They know how to ‘keep’ their relations for million years. Don’t overlook them and definitely not their art. They can take if you don’t talk to them but they can’t be happier if you give your opinion on their every single art creation. They will love you and you will admire them!
