Of Colors And Brushstrokes, The “Artistic” Sayings…

November 15, 2007

Artists tend to see the world differently. Here’s what some artists think of their lives and the world around us.

Pablo Picasso

Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it?

Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.

Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don’t start measuring her limbs.

Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.

Salvador Dali

There are some days when I think I’m going to die from an overdose of satisfaction.

There is only one difference between a madman and me. The madman thinks he is sane. I know I am mad.

Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.

Wars have never hurt anybody except the people who die.
