  • "I don't think people are born artists; I think it comes from a mixture of your surroundings, the people you meet, and luck."
    Francis Bacon
  • "So long as people expect paintings to be simply coloured photographs they get no individuality and in the case of portraits, no characterisation. The real artist is striving to depict his subject's character and to stress the caricature, but at least it is art which is alive."
    William Dobell
  • "We don't have anything to say except with our pictures."
    Gilbert and George
  • "I am interested in making art to be experienced and explored by as many individuals as possible with as many different individual ideas about the given piece with no final meaning attached. The viewer creates the reality, the meaning, the conception of the piece."
    Keith Haring
  • "There comes a point where you see it all as completely empty being a popular artist to the extent that people who are not necessarily interested in art know about things or take some little interest. I think that now for me it's a burden. It's a bit hard to deal with and it wastes time as well."
    David Hockney
  • "I was a Catholic boy, I went to church every Sunday. A church has a certain magic and mystery for a child. It still shows in how I arrange things. It's always little altars."
    Robert Mapplethorpe
  • "Sometimes I'll drive around for months despair, nothing, nothing, then suddenly I will see something that seizes me.. a shape, a combination of shapes, a play of light or shadows and I send up a prayer because I know I have the germ of a picture."
    Jeffrey Smart
    American painter known for his rural scenes of the American countryside, with 'American Gothic' being his most famous work.
  • "Fantasy love is much better than reality love. Never doing it is very exciting. The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet."
    Andy Warhol
