It is not hard to understand modern art. If it hangs on a wall it's a painting, and if you can walk around it it's a sculpture.
Most painting in the European tradition was painting the mask. Modern art rejected all that. Our subject matter was the person behind the mask.
All art is exorcism. I paint dreams and visions too; the dreams and visions of my time. Painting is the effort to produce order; order in yourself. There is much chaos in me, much chaos in our time.
Painting is an infinitely minute part of my personality.
I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
My painting does not come from the easel.
Painting will have to deal more fully and less obliquely with life and nature's phenomena before it can again become great.
Painting is a source of endless pleasure, but also of great anguish.
Through a painting we can see the whole world.
I think a painting is more like the real world if it's made out the real world.
Now why should the cinema follow the forms of theater and painting rather than the methodology of language, which allows wholly new concepts of ideas to arise from the combination of two concrete denotations of two concrete objects?
No one can be a painter unless he cares for painting above all else.
Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is.
I have sworn to die painting.
I want to die painting.
If you want to paint the inner life, you paint it from the exterior. From the exterior, you breathe the inner life into your painting.
I had decent but not great grades in high school because I was highly motivated in some subjects, like the arts, drama, English, and history, but in math and science I was a screw-up. Wooster saw something in me, and I really flourished there. I got into theatre, took photography and painting classes.

I kind of do the drawing with the painting in mind, but it's very hard to guess at a size or a color and all the colors around it and what it will really look like.
A painting that doesn't shock isn't worth painting.
Dada was an extreme protest against the physical side of painting. It was a metaphysical attitude.
I was a really lousy artist as a kid. Too abstract expressionist; or I'd draw a big ram's head, really messy. I'd never win painting contests. I remember losing to a guy who did a perfect Spiderman.
You wind up creating from silence, like painting a picture on a blank canvas that could bring tears to somebody's eyes. As songwriters, our blank canvas is silence. Then we write a song from an idea that can change somebody's life. Songwriting is the closest thing to magic that we could ever experience. That's why I love songwriting.
No one is an artist unless he carries his picture in his head before painting it, and is sure of his method and composition.
Abstract painting is abstract. It confronts you. There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn't have any beginning or any end. He didn't mean it as a compliment, but it was.
The reason I play music is to touch people - for selfish reasons, as well. It feels good to make someone else feel something, whether it's a kiss, a painting, good idea or it's a song.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
