Artistry is the ability to convey emotional information by means of movements, facial expressions, look of the eyes and voice tone. Artistry is an art of reincarnation, the art that allows a person to put on a certain “mask.” Getting into a role, a person temporarily changes their personality, though retaining the deeply personal ‘settings’.
In fact, artistry is needed not only for actors, because it is also important in other areas of activity. For example, its absence would be damaging for businessmen, teachers, journalists, sales representatives and anyone who deals with people. Artistry is also extremely important in everyday life because in order to maintain good relationships it is often more beneficial for us to behave not as we want but as the situation requires.
One of the manifestations of artistry is the ability to hold back one’s own emotions. What does artistry mean, in the first place? First of all, it is a tool for managing yourself and people. Sounds strange, but think: why do people play certain roles? Of course, to get a response in the viewer’s soul. And having achieved the necessary emotions, one can direct a person to the way of reflection that is advantageous to the artist.
So, would you say you are an artistic person?
