Quote of the Day
No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.
The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.
If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.
John F. Kennedy

Art is not a handicraft, it is the transmission of feeling the artist has experienced.
Even a true artist does not always produce art.
Sorrowful and great is the artist's destiny.

I know I haven't always done things the right way. I'm just trying to reflect on how to make myself better, how to become a better man, a better father, a better person, a better artist.
Every production of an artist should be the expression of an adventure of his soul.
W. Somerset Maugham
All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
I am Warhol. I am the No. 1 most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh.
A great artist is always before his time or behind it.
George Edward Moore
I'm not an artist. I set the camera up and tell my story.
The ability to make somebody feel something: that's art. However you look at it, whether you're an author, a painter, a singer, a rapper, a spoken-word artist - art.
A great artist is a great man in a great child.
Let not a man do what his sense of right bids him not to do, nor desire what it forbids him to desire. This is sufficient. The skillful artist will not alter his measures for the sake of a stupid workman.
I leave the genre labeling to other people. I really do. If I were to think too hard about it, that would stifle you creatively. If you think too hard about who other people want you to be as an artist, it stops you from being who you want to be as an artist.
Inside you there's an artist you don't know about. He's not interested in how things look different in moonlight.
Few people know that I am also an artist; I truly enjoy sketching and drawing.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
