Would you want to do art that people hated? Of course not. I’m not talking about the avant grade where some people like it and some people hate it’s fringe appeal. I’m saying you wouldn’t want to do art where you were the only person in the universe who thought it was good and everyone else always thought it was shit.
In this way an artist sort of develops through collaboration. My uncle always told me that the only way to get better was to expose myself and my art to criticism. Most people who haven’t attended a formal critique of their work can always try to find novel ways of getting their art seen. Ways like: posting art on Facebook, blatantly asking someone’s opinion, emailing art to art critics.
It is important as a developing artist to get feedback.
