Is It Good for Artists to be pushed Outside Their Comfort Zone?
Japanese-born and Brooklyn-based, artist Hisham Akira Bharoocha is no stranger to immersing himself and his audiences in a vast array of cultural experiences. His opinion:
'It’s a great challenge to take artists out of their comfort zone. We all end up finding a comfort zone whatever we do in life and it’s good to have the slight feeling of unease to push ourselves into new dimensions of creation or expression. I always feel a little nervous when trying something new in an unfamiliar space but I always feel great once I’ve accomplished the task at hand. New ideas are only born once you push yourself outside of your comfort zone.'
