You will always find yourself naked in a room full of people when you’re an artist. Theoretically speaking, of course. There is no way you can not show that most vulnerable side of yourself whether you wanted to or not. The crowd may fall for the idea that artists having the most confidence than everyone but that may be more farther from the truth.
