Yes. Two points:
1. if the artists is working purely for the self, then they are innovative
if they are exploring new ground for them. Their work is orriginal for
them.
2. if the artist is working from a 'historical' point of view, their work
is innovative if it is 'orriginal' in the context of history. ie. they
develop something in a way that hasn't been explored to their knowledge.
