    stand out into

    Hello all,

    Here the speaker is talking about a school (place) and his secret identity that is not known by the students. But I couldn't understand the second sentence mean. What does stand out into mean here? I'm not native speaker and trying to translate this, so please tell how can say this sentence in other version? Thanks :)


    Itís the kind of place where, even if everyone knew I was Micheal, I might not stand out. As it is now, Iíve turned not standing out into an art form.

    Re: stand out into

    I guess I can't understand the art form mean :( How can a person transform into an art form? Is there any different meaning of art form?
