How to be an Artist by Jerry Saltz
Jerry Saltz is the senior art critic at New York magazine and its entertainment site Vulture. He is the winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize in Criticism and a 2019 National Magazine Award.
From the first sparks of inspiration – and how to pursue them without giving in to self-doubt – Saltz offers invaluable insight into what really matters to emerging artists: originality, persistence, a balance between knowledge and intuition, and that most precious of qualities, self-belief. Brimming with rules, prompts, and practical tips, How to Be an Artist gives artists new ways to break through creative blocks, get the most from materials, navigate career challenges, and above all find joy in the work.
Teeming with full-colour artwork from visionaries ancient and modern, this beautiful and useful book will help artists of all kinds – painters, photographers, writers, performers – realise their dreams.
