Shock Artist Andres Serrano: Why I make controversial art

I was inspired by what Andres Serrano said about being an artist not a particular race or type of artist. It’s very important that we as artists don’t pigeonhole ourselves into a certain category or type. It would seem that many artists might describe themselves as a “wedding photographer” or something along those lines. We should ascribe to be artists of our chosen medium. Labels are what society uses to categorize. Great artists have no category.
