Popular Everything has compiled this list of actors and musicians you didn’t know were making art in their spare time. In many ways, a visual artist is comparable to an actor or musician, requiring skill in self-expression.

Are they offering us sincere expression or trying to legitimize their fame? So, are they talented artisans or self-righteous celebrities? Take a look at these photos, and we’ll let you be the judge.
