Stuart Semple launches the world’s first official Artistic License

Stuart Semple launches the world's first official Artistic License FAD magazine

Stuart Semple’s cultureHustle recently announced the release of an official Artistic License, empowering creative individuals and organisations to go forth and innovate.

Much like a driver’s license, the premise of the Artistic License is to officiate the skill, talent and interpretation of artists all over the world. It is designed to democratise the idea that to be seen as a serious, or talented creative, you must have immense experience, a degree from the right school, or have been showcased at an established gallery.

Semple vehemently believes that art and the desire to create it should be championed by all. ‘Artistic License’ has been an unofficial permission granted to artists for decades, and yet even with being given this esoteric blessing, artists consistently face criticism for their individual interpretations or reinterpretations of the art they create.

“I’m an artist, but no one gave me permission to do it. In fact, people went out of their way to put me off. They told me I’d end up starving after chopping my ear off. I’m dedicating these licenses to every kid who was ever told they couldn’t. Hopefully there’s something empowering about having a license to solidify that you’re entitled to create, now anyone can be a legit licensed artist”

Artistic License is available from cultureHustle.com, and comes with a £25 credit for art supplies on the online store.
