Celebrating Diversity #13

Sun Dec 16, 2012, 5:59 AM
In this issue of Celebrating Diversity, I would like to remind you of an amazing feeling...when you see a piece of art created in a medium or genre that you have little or no experience of working in, and it feels like you're witnessing something magical, something beyond your comprehension.

It's wonderful to revel in the joy of How do they do that? and find inspiration in the creations of other artists. So I challenge you to take a step outside of the galleries that you regularly browse and immerse yourself in the experience of indulging in something new.


How do you celebrate diversity?


:bulletpink: Do you regularly browse, comment on and collect art that's wildly different from what you create?
:bulletpink: Do you watch artists who use mediums that you don't use in your own art?
:bulletpink: Within mediums that you're familiar with, do you enjoy browsing genres that you don't often explore in your own work?

How does diversity in art inspire you?

:bulletpink: When you see something amazing in a medium that you've never used, does it make you want to try your hand at that medium?
:bulletpink: Do you find your own artistic style being influenced by the experience of viewing other people's work?
:bulletpink: Are your horizons broadened by learning about other mediums and genres of art?

A diversity challenge for YOU!

The next time you see something on dA that you enjoy but don't understand, whether it's a subject matter that you're unfamiliar with or a technique that you've never seen before, take some time to learn about it. Read the artist's comments, go on a Google mission to find out more, use the More Like This feature on dA to see similar work. Expand your artistic frame of reference and knowledge to fuel your creativity!

An artist must never be a prisoner. Prisoner? An artist should never be a prisoner of himself, prisoner of style, prisoner of reputation, prisoner of success, etc..
