What is a real artist?
Here's an interesting point of view daily-norm.com/2012/06/24/bp-p… about art and how should hyper-realism be considered, whatever the medium is, trying to answer a simple question : what is a real artist? Who is the real artist : the photographer who had the eye (the luck sometimes) to catch a great shot becoming a reference, or the other who gets inspired and copies with high skills?
At the same time, copy by an artist on another is also part of art history. So : true artists are very few and the rest are just wannabes, producing good or pales copies? What should prevail, technical skills or creation? What's your own point of view?
