Visual Artist Not a Painter

The action of painting can be performed by the most unskilled person, a child or an adult… To be an Artist does not equal to be a painter.

Recently I visited a gallery store to ask how can I be part of their collection and the attendant ( who seemed to be the owner) asked me; What do you paint ? Instantly my brain exploded in to micro Mad Face Emojis 😡😡😡 . Sorry sir but Iam an ARTIST, NOT A PAINTER.
