It took me 40 years to find out that painting is not sculpture.-
Marc Chagall 






I am out to introduce a psychic shock into my painting, one that is always motivated by pictorial reasoning: that is to say, a fourth dimension.-
Salvador Dali 






When I work, I work very fast, but preparing to work can take any length of time.-
Cy Twombly  




At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since-
Leonardo da Vinci 



One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.  Poor is the pupil who does not surpass his master.-
Henri Matisse 



Cezanne, you see, is a sort of God of painting.-
Claude Monet 




Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.-
Jackson Pollock 





Every good painter paints what he is.-
Rembrandt van Rijn 

 



Practise what you know, and it will help to make clear what now you do not know. - Vincent Van Gogh 





The only time I feel alive is when I'm painting.-
Andy Warhol 










Why do people think artists are special? It's just another job.  Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.
Mary Boone 
(gallery owner)





Warhol turned to photographs of stars, as the Renaissance turned to antiquities, to find images of gods. I'm painting an idea not an ideal. Basically I'm trying to paint a structured painting full of controlled, and therefore potent, emotion.-
Euan Uglow  




Whether I'm painting or not, I have this overweening interest in humanity. Even if I'm not working, I'm still analyzing people. - 
Alice Neel  




A painter paints the appearance of things, not their objective correctness, in fact he creates new appearances of things.-
Ernst Ludwig Kirchner  




All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness. -
Eckhart Tolle




I'm not trying to make paintings look like photos. 
I want to make paintings using photos as a reference, the way painters did when photography was first invented.- Peter Doig  




I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious. -
Andrew Wyeth  




At moments of great enthusiasm it seems to me that no one in the world has ever made something this beautiful and important.
M.C. Escher 



I am essentially a painter of the kind of still life composition that communicates a sense of tranquillity and privacy, moods which I have always valued above all else. -
Giorgio Morandi 



A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing. -
William Dobell 




I'm trying to create flesh architecture. I aim to get a sculptural feel for groups of bodies, as well as create performance art.-
Spencer Tunick  



Painting is a language which cannot be replaced by another language. I don’t know what to say about what I paint, really.-
Balthus  




The music that really turns me on is either running toward God or away from God. Both recognize the pivot, that God is at the center of the jaunt. -
Bono 




There's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it. -
Henry Moore  



You come to nature with 
all her theories, and she knocks them all flat.-
Renoir





I’m not an abstractionist. I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on. -
Mark Rothko 




Painting is so poetic, while sculpture is more logical and scientific and makes you worry about gravity.
Damien Hirst 




Reason is powerless in the expression of Love.- Rumi 




The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection. - Michelangelo 







Believe it or not, I can actually draw. - 
Jean Michel Basquiat




Man can't do without God. Just like you're thirsty, you have to drink water. You just can't go without God.- Bob Marley



O great creator of being grant us one more hour to perform our art and perfect our lives. - Jim Morrison 






The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery. I don’t think people are born artists; 
I think it comes from a mixture of your surroundings, the people you meet, and luck. -
Balthus 






One of the wonderful things about a museum is how you're jolted into confronting art from strange and wonderful civilizations and you look and learn and expand your horizons.- 
Max Beckmann 





Painting is a language which cannot be replaced by another language. I don’t know what to say about what I paint, really. -
Banksy 




I paint German artists whom I admire. I paint their pictures, their work as painters, and their portraits too. But oddly enough, each of these portraits ends up as a picture of a woman with blonde hair. I myself have never been able to work out why this happens. 
Jean Michel Basquiat 





My heart beats more for a raw, average vulgar art, which doesn't live between sleepy fairy-tale moods and poetry but rather concedes a direct entrance to the fearful, commonplace, splendid and the average grotesque banality in life. 
William Blake 





I myself do nothing. The Holy Spirit accomplishes all through me.- 
Pierre Bonnard 




The artist who paints the emotions creates an enclosed world.. the picture.. which, like a book, has the same interest no matter where it happens to be. Such an artist, we may imagine, spends a great deal of time doing nothing but looking, both around him and inside him.- 
Constantin Brancusi 






ARTISTS QUOTES....




The holy grail is to spend less time making the picture than it takes people to look at it.- 
Paul Cezanne
