What is an artist:?


I am looking for opinions on what qualifies someone to use the title artist.. I took the picture of the bridge; but, I don't consider myself an artist, although a few of my photos have won awards. (This one hasn't won any awards, because I have not entered it into a contest.)

    I think that is a great answer one of the best I have ever heard., though it kind of leaves out writers and poets. That's ok.

    I know the work. He did sign his name. If I did that it would be vandalism at best,.

    He had a body of work before he presented that piece, so perhaps reputation has a role? That's one of the reasons I am asking the question.

    I considered asking "What is art?" This question module isn't big enough. There is a lot of material written on the subject. It seems to change every few decades.
