Creative Art Drive– Brilliance Gallery
Why do artists do what they do? What compels them to constantly create so obsessively? For me,

ideas or you can hit a creative dry spell. Artistry requires constant practice and trial and error. But
it’s OK, even beneficial, to take a rest too and become a receiver rather than a transmitter—
balancing the yin and the yang.
No true artist wants to simply copy others and we all seek to put forward work that reflects the
aesthetics and insights that make us who we are. In a sense the creative drive is a primal drive to be

show the world. Yes, there is a certain amount of ego that goes into being an artist because it is
presumptuous to think your creations are worthy of extra attention. We’ve seen plenty of artists
with larger than life personalities such as famous Spaniards Dali and Picasso. It almost comes with
the territory because you have to be willing to step up and put everything on the line to be an artist
and open yourself up to the world of criticism, which takes a thick skin.
