DAY 52 - HOW TO BE AN ARTIST / by Debra Matlock

Lesson 12: Know What You Hate

It is probably you.

Exercise: Make a List of Art
Make a list of three artists whose work you despise. Make a list of five things about each artist that you do not like; be as specific as possible. Often there’s something about what these artists do that you share. Really think about this.

#1 Takashi Murakami

  1. It’s art that someone who thinks they know me would say “that’s SO YOU.”

  2. It’s repetitive.

  3. It’s boring.

  4. It’s devoid of content.

  5. It’s dated.

What do I share? I guess I fear being boring and dated.
