Don't Call Me a F**king Black Artist...

illastrat Dec 8, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Why does the art community feel the need to call artists with a black heritage a "black artist?" Its almost like they insinuate that I am not good enough to just be called just an artists. What pisses me off even more are the people that compare me to other artists that happen to be black, as if we all paint the same. Yes, blacks have had a rich heritage in the visual arts, but I am an artist. Simple as that. I don't paint black subject matter (per-say) and my art is indistinguishable to that of other races. People treat my art like its in some sort of subordinate genre not good enough or professional enough. PISSES...ME....OFF!

I wonder of this guy has a mental condition of sorts. He seems to live in a little world of his own since half of his threads make people go "Eh... What?".

Probably...He probably has some kind of superiority complex.

He says this about people saying things about his race, but here is a pretty interesting conversation about someone's sexuality [link]
he also refers to himself as a black artist! [link]

..which directly contradicts the complaint lol
Dude's a dumbfuck of the highest caliber.
I can't believe you people are still circlejerking over this trollpost. :lol:

It's something you're identified with. To those who know I'm Finnish I'm a Finnish artist -- to those who know some gal is a lesbian she is a lesbian artist.

Get over it.
