An artist can encompass a wide variety of people. The most important aspect of any artist is to be creative, to not rely solely on the works of others, and to continue being creative over a period of time. Many people simply use or consume the works of others, and these people are not artists. An artist breaks new ground and creates a path that is not yet established. Artists can range over several forms of art ranging from pottery, writing, film, radio, painting, sculpting, calligraphy, music, and dozens of other forms of artistic expression.
