What other shape of circle is available?
well, it's en konstnär who, as we know, tends to be konstig, so probably there are lots of possibilities :)
Ha ha ha du är rätt, bara en konstnär kan ritta andra slag av cirkel
S/he could be attempting to draw circles but accidentally makes them elliptic. In that case you could say s/he’s painting circles and some are rounder than others. :)
Could also be a reference to the story of Giotto’s perfect circle.
I prefer square circles myself.
Det ar en pleonasm ;-)
A useful Swedish idiomatic expression is tårta på tårta, literal translation "cake upon cake". Its meaning is "unnecessarily redundant", so a pleonasm. :)
tårta på tårta is great!
why is painter not acceptable? it can have the same nuance as artist
Because "konstnär" is a broader term than "painter", it could just as well be a sculptor, a musician or a performace artist for example. A painter would be en målare.
In the other tread it has been suggested that a performance artist or anybody who performs on stage, like a singer, is ":en artist", not " en konstnär". Is that so?
Yes. En artist is usually a stage perfomer.
No wonder s/he has trouble drawing!
why "draws" is unacceptable?
Well, drawing and painting are different things.
well nobody paints square circles.
Are you sure?
Change it to teach us "around" circles instead
Why? That doesn't make a lot of sense.
