Anonymous asked: Is the art of the artist and the artist himself different in nature ? dumb philosophiquestion ? for example do you consider what you create apart from you or the continuation of your being ? I won't blame you if you don't answer. it's quite something you take the time to answer to all of these questions, hopefully it doesn't affect you to much, you've got songs parked in my heart. my man mat, you are wiser than me maybe, who cares anyway, communicating to inspiring people is thrilling in itself.
The problem with philosophy for me has always been that there is one answer for everything, that is, “it’s different for everyone”.
My art is the most important thing to me, which poses tremendous problems if my art becomes inseparable from my ego. That can be a terribly dangerous position to be in.
Sometimes being acknowledged for art I’ve made by people abroad has fucked up my perspective and made me think I am more important than I actually am. In truth I am no one, and do very little.
I mean no one in my hometown has ever heard of me, and I suspect the ones that have don’t really like my shit that much.
I guess to answer the question in the only way I can, on a personal level, my art is me for both my benefit and my detriment.
