I don't really count myself as a very sophisticated businessperson. I'm a creative artist. All I know from business I've picked up along the way.
An artist must be free to choose what he does, certainly, but he must also never be afraid to do what he might choose.
Videos have to go hand in hand with your music, so that's why, ultimately, they should be created by the artist. And if they're not, it doesn't really add up to me.
The dignity of the artist lies in his duty of keeping awake the sense of wonder in the world. In this long vigil he often has to vary his methods of stimulation; but in this long vigil he is also himself striving against a continual tendency to sleep.
As an artist, as I design and lay out a page, the less-important things, things I want you to spend less time looking at, I draw them very small, maybe even silhouette them. The more-important pivotal scenes, I draw them larger, maybe even a double-page spread.
An artist never works under ideal conditions. If they existed, his work wouldn't exist, for the artist doesn't live in a vacuum. Some sort of pressure must exist. The artist exists because the world is not perfect. Art would be useless if the world were perfect, as man wouldn't look for harmony but would simply live in it.
Computers don't create computer animation any more than a pencil creates pencil animation. What creates computer animation is the artist.
An artist cannot speak about his art any more than a plant can discuss horticulture.
To an engineer, good enough means perfect. With an artist, there's no such thing as perfect.
I wear glasses and suits, so I guess I am an indie artist.
Nothing, indeed, is more dangerous to the young artist than any conception of ideal beauty: he is constantly led by it either into weak prettiness or lifeless abstraction: whereas to touch the ideal at all, you must not strip it of vitality.
It's good as an artist to always remember to see things in a new, weird way.
I've been called many names like perfectionist, difficult and obsessive. I think it takes obsession, takes searching for the details for any artist to be good.
An artist has no home in Europe except in Paris.
Few people know that I am also an artist; I truly enjoy sketching and drawing.
I am not a Christian artist, I am an artist who is a Christian.
The modern artist... is working and expressing an inner world - in other words - expressing the energy, the motion, and other inner forces.
What an artist is trying to do for people is bring them closer to something, because of course art is about sharing. You wouldn't be an artist unless you wanted to share an experience, a thought.
I have a great body, I really do. But I want to be taken seriously as an artist, and wearing anything that shows it off will be a distraction from the music. That's how my signature uniform, my tuxedo, came about. It's classic and timeless. You'll see me in black, white, and a pop of color on my lips. That pop adds a little magic.
I have had this longstanding interest in going back to school to get a Ph.D. in art history. I was especially interested in exploring this idea of the ecstatic impulse in an artist.
I really want to be associated with great projects and character driven projects and films. I have to feed my soul, and keep feeling like an artist and keep being challenged.
It is frequently the tragedy of the great artist, as it is of the great scientist, that he frightens the ordinary man.
I love power. But it is as an artist that I love it. I love it as a musician loves his violin, to draw out its sounds and chords and harmonies.
I don't have stylistic loyalty. That's why people perceive me changing all the time. But there is a real continuity in my subject matter. As an artist of artifice, I do believe I have more integrity than any one of my contemporaries.
Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.
