Art is theft

This is a gorgeous short film by Daniel Cordero. It outlines the idea that creativity comes from the artists and art that inspire us – that we ‘steal’ it to make something new.

Creation is not inspired by one man, woman or one thing. We are influenced by our daily fair, diverse artists etc. I have admired various influential artists in my life, such as Picasso, Dali and Warhol. With this film, I attempted to convey an approach to the creative process and express how all artists, at any level, “steal” the art and the very soul of other artists, while forming their “original” pieces.

Of course, this is the key theme in Austin Kleon’s ace book, Steal Like an Artist, which I generally reread every few months and dip into more often than that.
