“What is an interdisciplinary artist?”
A person or a team of people who are interdisciplinary use philosophies or knowledge from several fields to solve problems that are outside the scope of the traditional boundaries. No dabbling here; This is cross-platform approach to art making using finely tuned skills from various backgrounds. Like a triathlete, limiting their professional title to a single field would negate all the training they have in other fields. Click here to learn more about interdisciplinary art.
