Art Quotes for June 28
I paint anybody, anybody that asks me.

Art Quotes for June 25

Art Quotes for June 23
A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
::: Hans Hofmann :::
I don't get into "becauses." When you come into a studio you see a number of works. My habit is to go to the one I like most. If you start to say "because" you get into art jargon.

Art Quotes for June 21

Painters must speak through paint, not through words.

::: Robert Hughes :::
When you have the super-rich paying for an immature Rose Period Picasso $104m (£57m), close to the GNP of some Caribbean or African states, something is very rotten: such gestures do no honour to art: they debase it by making the desire for it pathological.
::: Robert Hughes :::
Art Quotes for June 11
As Leonardo da Vinci investigated the depths of the human body and sectioned dead corps, so I try to section souls
::: Edvard Munch :::
I'm not interested in provoking people, but only in trying to be consoling. I always think of the things I do, quite unambiguously, as truly living vehicles.
::: Martin Kippenberger :::
Art Quotes for June 9

Assuming roles is something that simply won't work for me, since I don't have a style. None at all.
::: Martin Kippenberger :::

::: Jeff Koons :::
Art Quotes for June 4

If I were asked to use three colors it would be black, white and red, for they are the three strongest colors, and yellow would be my next choice.
::: Keith Haring :::

Art Quotes for June 2
In America the biggest is the best.

::: Roy Lichtenstein :::
