Artistic Expression, Ego and Genius

Most artists appear to have somewhat dysfunctional lives.

However, this does not imply a dysfunctional ego.

What is dysfunctional is how they express their ego in life.

I don't believe in a dysfunctional ego; I believe that growing up a dysfunctional family merely leads to behavioral and mental negativities due to mental unrest it causes.

Those negativities occult (cover up) one's true self.

Art is thus the creative outlet for expression of genius

For I believe ego is related to the true self.

In essence, artistic expression is the ego cutting through dysfunction towards health.
