I can say that for me Beauty is something that makes me dream, but it’s something much more intense than a dream. It’s an ideal, a mirage, an enigma.
Art is a permanent revolution.
Art should be interpreted by the one that sees it. It is an intimate experience; I believe it is for your eyes only.
To me, life without art is a definite impossibility.
I paint for myself, because I must. It’s like breathing. If I was forbidden to paint, I would be left without air.
My life is one of a poet, the circumstances that have tormented me are those of a person in love. I have defended myself from life like a hero.
To live near art is a beautiful thing; the farther away you move from it, fewer happy days you will have.
Never rest on my laurels.
Art can imitate reality, but is more often a product of it; this paradoxically, appears truer in photography.
