Definition of Artist:
1. a person who produces works in any of the arts that are primarily subject to aesthetic criteria.
2. a person who practices one of the fine arts, especially a painter or sculptor.
3. a person whose trade or profession requires a knowledge of design, drawing, painting, etc.: a commercial artist.
4. a person who works in one of the performing arts, as an actor, musician, or singer; a public performer: a mime artist; an artist of the dance.
5. a person whose work exhibits exceptional skill.
As you can see above, the word artist covers many creative folks in an array of professions. But the one concept we all have in common is CREATIVE. We take our sense of aesthetics to heights heretofore unknown to give the world a sense of the future, of new and uncharted realities. We give the world a view of what CAN be and what, if we have our way, what WILL be. Our art is very powerful and is the leading edge of new possibilities. We step just a little out of the box or a lot out of the box, someone catches on and a wave of new realities is born! Birth of a new civilization.
