Life of the Art Drug

Sometimes We're needed & sometimes We're not.

Surely though
B&D would soon be out of business
if Krishnamurti could have his way:


"Who is that person whom you call an artist? A man who is momentarily creative? To me he is not an artist. The man who merely at rare moments has this creative impulse & expresses that creativeness through perfection of technique, surely you would not call him an artist. To me, the true artist is one who lives completely harmoniously, who does not divide his art from living, whose very life is that expression, whether it be a picture, music or his behaviour; who has not divorced his expression on a canvas or in music or in stone from his daily conduct, daily living. That demands the highest intelligence, highest harmony. A true artist is a man who has that harmony. He may express it on canvas, or he may talk, or he may paint; or he may not express it at all, he may feel it. But all this demands that exquisite poise, that intensity of awareness and therefore his expression is not divorced from the daily continuity of living."
