Made with pride by the DeviantArt community

Hi, guys!

I know, I know, I've been away for a while. I was not feeling so great and had to take a break from art and stuff. Funny thing is: I had art to post because I was doing many pieces but I got pretty insecure and none of them looked good enough for me to post them here. Just Icarvs Things.

Anyways, how are you? I'm feeling better now.

Lately, I've been watching a lot of youtube art channels. The ones that feel like a podcast, where the artist comment on their art or art-related things are my favorites. Some of their comments and opinions made me think about things such as art block and talent, and I wanted to know what do you think about talent. Do you think talent is a real thing you were born to do or, idk, something made up by capitalism to make you believe that if you don't have that skill you should submit to the idea you have to do that kind of boring work because capitalism needs you to do the boring work?

Personally, I don't think talent is magical, destiny and all that jazz. I did think Talent was something extra special that made you one of a kind but - even before I started watching these videos - I stopped and thought about it. Like, not everyone has a talent? Or maybe everyone has a talent but not all have the ways to access them. For example, maybe a poor boy in Kenya would have the talent to become a great ice skater but since it's not something accessible for him, he wouldn't know that's what he would do better than everyone else. 

OK, but, what if you have a talent that you don't want to use? What if you love graffiti but you're really good at chemistry? What if you love physics but can't understand anything, but you're good at understanding music but don't really like it? Should you give up on your love for Graffiti or physics because you're not naturally good at it?

Here's what I think about it: talent is just a skill. It's more like a natural aptitude rather than a magical gift given by the gods because they want you do do that thing. Some people are "talented" at art, so - imo - all it means is that they can improve faster than other people. No one painted The Last Supper when they were six. Actually, I don't even think Da Vinci was talented. I mean, look at all his studies! That is the story of someone who worked really hard to get to that level, not of someone who had some magical gift.

So here is the thing: don't give up on something because you're not The Best at it. Started to try sculpting because you love it, even tho everyone says you should do Medicine because you're good at biology, but your final piece looks l a m e? Don't put yourself down because you didn't sculpt The Thinker on your first try, just keep trying. Don't try to be the best of all, just try to be better than before.

I don't think I'm talented for art, just creative.

So I'm curious. What do you think about it?
