25 of my favourite Artist quotes

Updated on May 11, 2011
  1. Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.
    Savador Dali
  2. What is a television apparatus to man, who has only to shut his eyes to see the most inaccessible regions of the seen and the never seen, who has only to imagine in order to pierce through walls and cause all the planetary Baghdads of his dreams to rise from the dust.
    Savador Dali
  3. I don't take drugs, I am drugs.
    Savador Dali
  4. The only difference between me and a madman is that I'm not mad. Savador Dali
  5. We are all hungry and thirsty for concrete images. Abstract art will have been good for one thing: to restore its exact virginity to figurative art.
    Savador Dali

 6.   Are we to paint what's on the face, what's inside the face, or   what's behind it? Pablo Picasso

7.    Computers are useless. They can only give you answers. 
Pablo Picasso

8.    God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephantand the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things. Pablo Picasso

10. The genius of Einstein leads to Hiroshima.

 11.   I don't think art is propaganda; it should be something that liberates the soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further. It celebrates humanity instead of manipulating it.
Keith Haring

12.    When it is working, you completely go into another place, you're tapping into things that are totally universal, completely beyond your ego and your own self. That's what it's all about. Keith Haring

 

 13.    I don't use drugs, my dreams are frightening enough.
M.C Escher

 14.    Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. I think it's in my basement... let me go upstairs and check.
M.C Escher

 

 15.     When I judge art, I take my painting and put it next to a God made object like a tree or flower. If it clashes, it is not art. Cezanne

 16.      The awareness of our own strength makes us modest.Cezanne

 17.     A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art. Cezanne

 

18. The portrait is one of the most curious art forms. It demands special qualities in the artist, and an almost total kinship with the model Matisse

19. Creativity takes courage Matisse

20.   Remember crime against property is not real crime. People look at an oil painting and admire the use of brushstrokes to convey meaning. People look at a graffiti painting and admire the use of a drainpipe to gain access. Banksy

21.  A lot of people never use their initiative because no-one told them to Banksy

22.  A lot of mothers will do anything for their children, except let them be themselves  Banksy
