I never thought being an adequate writer makes a good artist. I believe being well literate, educated and skilled makes a good artist.
I guess improved writing helps artist develop and understand who they are. They find meaning within their lives and translate it into their art.
I don’t know how improved writing will be significant to my life as an artist, but I guess it helps me develop my thoughts. Writing will, obviously, always be essential to any artist because it helps them develop their writing skills and think critically. Writing an essay on a variety of subjects allows artist to be versatile in their writing and explore different subjects and expand the way we view art.
