recent art quotes - motivationa and inspirational creative quotes recent quotes about art


I couldn't portray a women in all her natural loveliness.. I haven't the skill. No one has. I must, therefore, create a new sort of beauty, the beauty that appears to me in terms of volume of line, of mass, of weight, and through that beauty interpret my subjective impression.
::: Georges Braque :::
I think everybody deserves freedom. Freedom is such an abstract word, but it's all we need.
::: Ai Weiwei :::
As a painter I am beginning to see more clearly how to work from Nature.. but I still can't do justice to the intensity unfolding before my eyes.
::: Paul Cezanne :::
When I work, I work very fast, but preparing to work can take any length of time.
Cy Twombly :::
People were more interested in the phenomena than the art itself. This, combined with the growing interest in collecting art as an investment and the resultant boom in the art market, made it a difficult time for a young artist to remain sincere without becoming cynical.
::: Keith Haring :::
I tell young people that the greatest paintings in museums are made with minerals mixed in oil schmeared on cloth with the hair from the back of a pig's ear. It's that simple.
::: James Rosenquist :::
The emotion of beauty is always obscured by the appearance of the object. Therefore the object must be eliminated from the picture.
::: Piet Mondrian :::
When I paint something, I don't paint what I see in front of me, I paint the things I see in my head when I'm looking.
::: Georg Baselitz :::
I've never had an easy relationship with critics. I hold a lot of homicide in my heart. If this was another time, I'd be packing a piece.
::: Jim Dine :::
I opened my own gallery, in 1980, which I always thought was the most honest thing you could do. It's like a chef opening his restaurant.
::: Ken Done :::
I am essentially a painter of the kind of still life composition that communicates a sense of tranquillity and privacy, moods which I have always valued above all else.
::: Giorgio Morandi :::
A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing.
::: William Dobell :::
The holy grail is to spend less time making the picture than it takes people to look at it.
::: Banksy :::

Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it.
John Lennon :::
The music that really turns me on is either running toward God or away from God. Both recognize the pivot, that God is at the center of the jaunt.
::: Bono :::
There's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it.
::: Henry Moore :::
You come to nature with all her theories, and she knocks them all flat.
::: Renoir :::
The people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when I painted them. And if you, as you say, are moved only by their color relationships, then you miss the point!
::: Mark Rothko :::
Painting is so poetic, while sculpture is more logical and scientific and makes you worry about gravity.
::: Damien Hirst :::
Reason is powerless in the expression of Love.
::: Rumi :::
The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.
::: Michelangelo :::
Believe it or not, I can actually draw.
::: Jean Michel Basquiat :::
Man can't do without God. Just like you're thirsty, you have to drink water. You just can't go without God.
::: Bob Marley :::
O great creator of being grant us one more hour to perform our art and perfect our lives.
::: Jim Morrison :::
