Is creative chaos necessary for the creative arts? Perhaps is the artist’s imagination and originality of thought stimulated by a creative chaos process? Some think creative chaos is all about the artist’s environment. Is it messy and disorganized? More over, others think creative chaos is concerned with how you approach inventing and developing your creative growth.

The painter Pablo Picasso once said, “An act of art begins as an act of destruction,” which definitely describes the concept of “creative chaos” quite well.

Creative Chaos Mixed Media Abstract by Red

Even, the ancient Greeks regarded chaos as the source of all things. Chaos was, according to Greek mythology, the origin of everything, and the first thing that ever existed.

In my studio, I allow myself to have creative chaos of thought so that my creative arts flourish and develop. I believe in allowing myself to tolerate the unknown, to creatively paint without a specific roadmap and let the artwork emerge or arise from deep within my soul.

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

Creative Chaos – Creative Arts – Environment or Thought?

Then again, there is a strong belief that innovation and creativity flourish in environments that are messy. Other words, an environment that permits mistakes allow people to step outside of their comfort zones. Many people who work in creative fields often prefer a chaotic or disorderly environment around them while they work on new ideas or projects.

The walls and floors of my studio definitely reflect my freedom to be a little chaotic in thought and messy. However, my studio to include all my art supplies conveys my need for some organization within the chaos. Even, in an article from the Orlando Magazine Orange Appeal / Interior Appeal titled “In the Artist Studio, Strokes by Red,” the following was stated:
