what is an artist?

Sarah Thornton scoured five out of the seven continents to handpick a group of artists for her most recent book titled 33 Artists in 3 Acts published back in September. Thornton defines what it is to be a contemporary artist from performance art and photographer, to painting and sculpting, and takes readers inside the personal lives of the artists she plucked for this collection.

33 Artists in 3 Acts is divided into, you guessed it, three acts: Politics, Kinship, and Craft and features different artists in each section. Covered in the sections are artist's ethics, relationships with peers and muses, and skills. Very interesting read for those of you into the art scene, and may be dull for those who are not.
