What does being an artist mean?

The Brooklyn artist Chris Martin is showing immense works at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Here, he talks briefly about the artist’s identity and how no artist, not even those in arts education, really knows what he or she is doing. The passion of working in whatever medium enthralls us is the real key to calling one’s self an ‘artist’.
