The word “artist” is very ambiguous and misleading nowadays. While an artist is basically everyone who creates works of art, be it visual or performing arts, many people imagine painters as those qualified to be called “artists.” To tell the truth, many prominent actors, singers, musicians, and directors are good painters as well. One of the few exceptions was David Bowie, who was an ardent painter and art collector. If you wonder whether your favorite celebs are adepts of some art movement, you should take a look at the list of famous celebrities who have a hand in visual art.
