the similarities among these artist is that they express using their own techniques, style, and originality. they have their own artistic vision and perception of the world. what differentiates them from the other is the tool they use to show it to their audience. for the graphic designer, a visual presentation; tattoo artist, a needle; painter, a brush; dancer/performer, body movement; singer/rapper, voice; and for the actress, emotions.

The role an artist plays in society is largely dependent on the personality of the artist and on that artist’s chosen subject matter. An artist can lead, follow, uplift or provoke with their work. Art is often a reflection or extension of personality. Art is so versatile that the artist can take whatever role they wish, given the right art for a given set of social circumstances. — Teresa Dye

As a professional in the near future, the qualities I would like to imitate from an artist is passion because they love to do what they do, strong sense of vision, and resilience because they know success doesn’t happen overnight.
