English Writing :
An artist is by definition someone who has a remarkable talent.
For me, the (I'd say 'a good artist) good artist follows his choices and convictions. For example Dali criticized other artists, saying the only one he ever liked was Picasso because he was the one who didn't subject his
talent to the law or to the judgment of others.
The good artist has to produce dreams whose interpretation brings
others a special feeling or reflexion through the themes broached or
through the representation of the subject.
The final idea or concept doesn't have to end in politics or in a
debate, but, ideally, just on a personnal theme of the autor. That
is what really interests me the most.
