Here’s a quick rundown of Ballen’s 7 thoughts:

1. The Purpose of Art

“Why do some works stick? Why are some works fleeting? If you ponder this, then you may be an artist.”

2. Redefine Your World

“How do you define anything? If you redefine your understanding of words, then you may be an artist.”

3. Visual Relationships

“When you learn to see strong, complex visceral relationships beyond words, then you may be an artist.”

4. A Vision is Unique

5. Search Within

“You need to travel deep inside yourself to create a good picture.”

6. Break Through Your Mind

“If you can let go and break through your mind, then you may be an artist.”

7. Face Your Fears

“If you confront your fears, this will certainly assist your artistic endeavors.”
