Question 16: Do you think an artist has a specific role to play in society? If so, what is it?


As to the role played by artists in society, I think that his or her role is to produce works of art that, once they’ve been presented to viewers, will end up being something that helps them grow. I think that this is the reason for works of art, and if an artist does not do this, well, he or she is not being true to his calling.
