This creative process can be likened to a puzzle. The artist’s creative vision serves as the puzzle piece. The artist must assemble the art into a coherent whole. During the creative process, the artist sees the pieces of the puzzle and strives to fit them together in a new and exciting way.
When creating, the artist should focus on how best to represent the subject matter. It is the artist's duty to convey his or her vision of the artwork through the process of art creation. And this is where the artist experiences some of the most rewarding moments of art creation.
A well-known artist may receive inspiration from an event, a phenomenon, or the environment. The artist's inspiration may be linked to the subject of the art, or it may be linked to the artist's personal feelings and emotions. Inspiration from nature, including the beauty of animals and plants, is a well-known source of inspiration for artists.
While it is impossible to imitate directly, the artist's goal is to create a work of art that is of similar degree of excellence to a masterpiece. Thus, the artist first approaches the body of work of the best artists of their chosen genre to learn the various creative techniques and skills that have been perfected. The artist then uses these techniques and skills to create his or her own masterpiece.
The development of automated systems for the mass production of art, such as the mechanical dancer and the digital painter have, as their capacity to produce images is being broadened, aroused the interest of philosophers, cognitive scientists and artists. The emergence of new forms of art, generated by new technologies, such as computer-generated art or computer-aided virtual reality, have challenged the dominant ways in which art is defined and mediated, yet at the same time have revived interest in the value of art in general. The limits of human creativity have also become a topic of philosophical and artistic concern. These new forms of art have also had the effect of raising the issue of the human condition, its nature and its limits, again, a topic of philosophical and artistic interest.

In the case of the Trade Mark Office (WIPO) , the concept of originality is codified in Article 3(1) of the Registration Agreement for Trade Marks . According to the WIPO, a person is regarded as the first to invent if he/she makes a contribution to the art. The contribution is a positive change from the knowledge or perception of the applicant or others in the art.
