Tortured artist

Back | Home | Up


The Tortured artist is a stock character and stereotype, who is in constant ferment due to frustrations with art and other people. The tortured artist feels alienated and misunderstood due to what he/she perceives as the ignorance or neglect of others who do not understand them, and the things they feel are important. They sometimes smoke, are sexually frustrated, and appear overwhelmed by their own emotions and inner conflicts. The tortured artist is often mocked in popular culture for being attention seeking, narcissistic, or just adverse to happiness.

Examples in culture

Russell Corwin on tv show Six feet under
Charlie Kaufman in 2002 movie Adaptation
