I like Dali and Magritte. I also like the Scottish artist John Byrne, another surrealist.
I think an artist's responsibility is more complex than people realize.
A garden is a complex of aesthetic and plastic intentions; and the plant is, to a landscape artist, not only a plant - rare, unusual, ordinary or doomed to disappearance - but it is also a color, a shape, a volume or an arabesque in itself.
Roberto Burle Marx
I think that to explore the uncomfortable and the politically incorrect is the job of the artist.
I want to be an artist that everyone can relate to, that's young, happy and fun.
The work of the artist is to express what is repressed or even to speak the unspoken grief of society.
I love doing logos. I've been a graphic artist all my life.
The artist is chosen by God to fulfill his commands and must never be overwhelmed by public opinion.
Not every artist is a role model.
Modelling, it's being an artist as well. It's just being a silent artist. It takes a lot of self-control and a lot of discipline.
When we talk about Oscars, it's almost as a symbol of excellence, and the American public and the worldwide public accept that symbol. So, a movie like 'The Artist' that costs $14 million, has to go out and compete with movies that cost $140 million. How does David deal with Goliath?
Camera lies all the time. It's all it does is lie, because when you choose this moment instead of this moment, when you... the moment you've made a choice, you're lying about something larger. 'Lying' is an ugly word. I don't mean lying. But any artist picks and chooses what they want to paint or write about or say. Photographers are the same.
People sometimes ask if I want to be a solo artist, but it just wouldn't be any fun being on your own.
I set my sights upon becoming the kind of artist who would make a contribution to art history.
The moment you cheat for the sake of beauty, you know you're an artist.
Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world.
I suppose for me as an artist it wasn't always just about expressing my work; I really wanted, more than anything else, to contribute in some way to the culture that I was living in. It just seemed like a challenge to move it a little bit towards the way I thought it might be interesting to go.
An artist's only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else's.
J. D. Salinger
Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is.
A true architect is not an artist but an optimistic realist. They take a diverse number of stakeholders, extract needs, concerns, and dreams, then create a beautiful yet tangible solution that is loved by the users and the community at large. We create vessels in which life happens.
When you're an artist, all you're trying to do is self-express.
If I was just a fan of music, I would think that I was the number one artist in the world.
The creative artist seems to be almost the only kind of man that you could never meet on neutral ground. You can only meet him as an artist. He sees nothing objectively because his own ego is always in the foreground of every picture.
Any system that sees aesthetics as irrelevant, that separates the artist from his product, that fragments the work of the individual, or creates by committee, or makes mincemeat of the creative process will, in the long run, diminish not only the product but the maker as well.
True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist.
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
