  • I think yes, because

    Artist have a way more variety of thinking on the situation and trying to figure it out. But not all artist are smart the way we think they are. This is a terrible question to ask, most will be offended {the ones who know nothing of art}, and most will cause conflict between the two. Non-artist can be creative, but on a different level. Like for example, a kid is a genius at math problems, but he doesn't solve it the way the instructor shows him, he does in in his own way. Is that smart? Yes. Is that creative? Most definitely. He is doing something no one has taught the child, in order to understand the problem. Artist are creative, and plenty are brilliant, but not all are all so bright. Some are drove mad, trying to be so "creative." But anyways, being able to produce "art" or not, should not be based on ones intelligence.

  • Smarter? No, but Smarter? YES

    Who is an artist, better yet, what is an artist? An artist is someone that is skilled and/or talented at a particular task. The fact of the matter is, that an artist doesn't have to be one dimensional. An artist is not only a painter, but a singer, an athlete, an actor, etc. If you are someone that releases your creative brain more than others, and use that creativity to produce something that someone else can't, you are an artist. To simplify the question.... Everyone can become an artist, but it's up to that person to bring out that creativity and imagination, which in time will make you smarter than a non artist, simply because a lack of imagination confines creativity which also restricts angles to figure out problems, or better yet, make solutions!

  • Artists Possess Every Facet of Intelligence. Simple As...

    Artists, not only have supreme amounts of talent, but they have the ability to think conceptually, philosophise and argue a particular strand of thought. This complexity of thought is what underpins our creative output. Artists have the full range of intelligence needed to evoke soul-curdling art. These are linguistic, existential, spatial, interpersonal and of course, logical.

  • True, Authentic, Artists Are Geniuses

    Real, true authentic artists are very smart because they see things in a broader multideminsional spectrum..They are deep thinkers and analyzers. They feel deep and think deep. It doesn't matter whether they are highly educated by the education system, or not, they are still brilliant. That is why they tend to be moody. The moodiness stems from over thinking and thinking deep into a subject. Their minds love to figure things out and they are able to calculate their surroundings quickly and accurately. They are able to see situations and problems easily and figure the solution and/or potentials in a clear and consice manner. Their thinking can be abstract or realistic and to the point. It is almost like they have a calculating investigative mind combined with a 6th sense that sees everything. Most people are just not as "aware" as an artist is. Then, when they are in school or are being educated in a college or some other way, they are able to excel because their brains love to be working on complicated calculations, memorizations and other things that take reasoning and where a lot of thought is needed. Art for them, is just another way of expressing their brilliance. And with that, art is a way of escaping their brilliance. That's is why some of the greatest artists, have been known to be crazy or near craziness. Active brilliant minds, need a break, or it drives a person crazy. Now, after saying all that, remember, there are excepts to every rule, and not every artists is a genius...But many more are! To be a great and exceptional artist, is to take all that brain activity and put it into beautiful, thought provoking , intriguing, mezmerizing and memorable art! Then, the people who love art, to look at art, are also guinesses too, because they get what the artist is conveying and feeling and how they brilliantly put it into their art piece, their master piece.

  • This question is bad

    Intelligence is not something that is black and white, it is partially determined at birth but can be increased through study. Artist or not, a good majority of the human race has the potential to be intelligent.
    Also, what on earth is the definition of an artist? Im sure everybody has made drawings for a project at one point in their lives or another, does that make them artistic? What about urban professionals that have art as a hobby but are really good at it? Are they considered artists? I just so happen to know one such individual that is both incredibly intelligent yet capable of drawing things to a near photographic degree of detail

    Bottom Line: Define the point at which people Stop/Start being artists and also Recognize that intelligence is Not based upon ones' abilities

  • No, but with reason.

    I won't go far as to say artists and non artists are equal intellectually. They're not all smarter, but they're more sophisticated. Saying that someone who can paint is smarter than someone who can't is like saying someone who can cook is smarter than someone who can't. It just means that they're more capable in that area.

  • No, artists are not smarter, they just perceive things differently.

    As one of the greatest and brightest minds on Earth today, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, has been quoted saying, "The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it." No artist has had the influence on education, science, or awareness as any scientist has. Art will not cure cancer, science will. Does this mean all smart people are not artists? No, it means in general one group versus the other, non-artists are smarter.

  • No, they are not smarter.

    An artist is creative. They use their brain in a different way, but that does not make them any smarter than non-artists. In my opinion, an artist seems to live in another world. Their work is a thing of beauty and abstract. They use more of the creative part of their mind.

  • Different types of intelligences

    There are various ways you could define intelligence. In some ways artists can view the world in ways that non-artists can't and that makes them smarter in a way. However, most artists aren't going to get us to the moon or solve an economic crisis. Intelligence is relative depending on what you're basing it on.
