Abstract

Transformations of the contemporary world have changed the artist’s work, therefore the artist’s image too. The question is if the artist’s image is still based on negative and bizarre value, or if the contemporary society has absorbed the artist’s strangeness, after the loss of his sacred status that he had in the past and now he’s become ‘more professional’ in a work that’s progressively integrated in the consuming culture. The research. The group consist of 150 people divided in painters-sculptors, musicians, poets-writers (traditional artists), architects, photographers (technical artists). Technique utilized is the semantic differential. The analysis of the frequencies of the medium scores have been carried out, the factorial Analysis to point out the size of the attitude and the sides of the terms in the semantic space are drawn the factorial compound scores. The first drawn factor si in conformity to the Activity, further to the Power and the Evaluation, and it proves that the artistic creativity is very strongly attributed. We can suppose that the positive vision of the attitude of the artists towards the stimulus categories is a direct consequence of the influence of the own society on the individuals, and that permits to the same artists to have a good opinion about relationships between the artist and his cultural surroundings.
