Artists, painters and designers. The word "artist" is most general in meaning, but it is usually understood as indicating somebody actively involved in painting or
drawing pictures, or making sculptures in various materials, i.e. somebody who is creative in the visual arts. The widest sense also includes musicians (composers rather than players), writers
(novelists, dramatists and poets rather than journalists), photographers (like Saudek, probably not paparazzi), and possibly some graffiti writers and sprayers.
The word "painter" alone could lead to misunderstanding, but it should become clear in combination whether somebody is a painter-decorator (buildings, rooms, walls) or
a landscape, portrait, water-color or generally picture painter. Designers are more concerned with practical objects and technical materials, and the English sense includes the design of internal,
mechanical operating or structural parts as well as the external look of the object.
