The Language of True Artists

When you hang out in different art and entertainment circles around the world, you become aware of an unspoken code of ethics that universally exists between true artists. First, true talent is humble and often unaware of the magnitude of their own talents. Everything they do seems super easy to them so they don’t measure their work in the same way as those that witness it. Two, the real artist does not feel the need to prove their talents. Again, everything just comes easily and naturally for them, or refined over time. And lastly, a true artist would never even think of stealing from another. The artist that feels they must copy to survive, or hang on to the successful name of another to develop their own, is NOT an artist. Imitation is never an issue to the creative evolving mind with boundless ideas and creativity which make up a real artist. The true artist is the one always imitated.
