My original creative background was fine art: Kanye West

Los Angeles: Kanye West may be famous as a rapper but he was originally inclined towards fine arts.

The 36-year-old `Stronger` hitmaker said he even got himself enrolled in a school of fine arts, reported Daily Mirror.

"My original creative background was fine art. By the time I was 14, I was in national competitions for art, and I actually went to school for art. Sometimes I actually forget that," West said.

"Except for when I tour and I look back at the stage and say, `Wait a second, I forgot this was the whole trick I pulled on everyone to make them think I was a rapper, a musician or celebrity when the entire time it`s all been a giant art project`," he added.

The rapper is currently engaged to reality TV star Kim Kardashian and they have a daughter together.
