Rather a bizarre title for an art-blog entry. As an artist I don’t think I need to know much about Math but unfortunately I find it very interesting. I don’t think it’s unfortunate but many others do. My daughters tease me about it constantly and I try really hard not to point out that they are equally geeky but in different ways. My wife generally finds it amusing.
Read the first paragraph. If you have read the articles mentioned then you are a mathematician. If you are just interested then maybe you are an artist. If they have no interest for you, you can still be an artist according to my daughter.
