Description
An artist is a person who is engaged in the activity of creating, practicing or demonstrating art, working with visual techniques, such as composition, colour, space and perspective to produce the desired effect. This could be in the form of installations, sculptures, paintings, drawings, pottery, performances, dance, photography, video, film and any other medium. Artists may also combine a number of different mediums into their work referred to as mixed media. Artists tend to create their own pieces for sale directly to the public or through an intermediary such as a gallery or an agent. Artists can also be commissioned by a client, gallery or organisation to produce a piece of work, and may also run art classes or be involved with community art projects.
