When the word “artist” is mentioned in a casual conversation, images of a beret-donning, mediocrity-fearing, sketchbook-carrying creative inevitably spring to mind. This creative is believed to be living in a dream world, and he only hangs out with his fellow creatives who lead decadent lifestyles.
But this depiction of the “artist” as an exclusive, pretentious creative is far from accurate. It does not even come close to describing the artists that make up the H2 Art Batch of 2018 in Raffles. When I entered the Art Studio on Friday, 27th October, I was warmly greeted by passionate art students who were eager to take me through their works.
