Creative Authenticity: 16 Principles to Clarify and Deepen Your Artistic Vision; Ian Roberts

If you were a stickler for categorisation of books, you may put this under self-help or guides. The back of the book claims it belongs to ART/Creativity – but to my mind, this is misleading – to an extent.

Yes, the book has been written for “in-service artists” (painters and writers, the author says), though I found the matter in the book quite relevant. The problem there is not about whether one is creative (as the author describes towards the end of the book), but, probably about who is an artist?

Visual and performance arts have always been considered the domains where creativity abounds. To my mind it flows in every aspect of our life. And if there are sixteen principles to help define the authenticity of your creativity, I think they might be well useful for all of us.

Ian Roberts writes, in very plain and straightforward manner, “16 Principles to Clarify and Deepen your Artistic Vision.” And he does a fantastic job of that. Even if you are way ahead in having formed your opinions about creativity and believe that these have matured like dried acrylic on canvas, it would do you well to read Creative Authenticity: 16 Principles to Clarify and Deepen Your Artistic Vision

There is a lot you may be able to add to your perception of art, creativity and your belief.flag
