Benedict Singleton: should you examine how the Western proposal of ‘the artist’ took form within the Renaissance, it was once a straight-up hustle. humans hyping the significance of items looked then as craft, like doing work, for you to inveigle their method into royal courts and get in with consumers etc. we must always keep in mind that, probably, after we discuss ‘the artist’ as that determine seems today—not simply that winning modern artists are hustlers, which, ok, yet that the complete thought of ‘art’ was once hatched as a kind of truly nice con. That background apart, I are inclined to see layout and artwork as non-stop to a point. In any occasion, I got here to layout overdue and figuring out not anything approximately it; I knew not anything approximately artwork both; and so I had no belief of a niche among the 2 fields.
