Wet Paint

banksyquotejennadecker

“Imagine a city where graffiti wasn’t illegal, a city where everybody could draw whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. A city that felt like a party where everyone was invited, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall – it’s wet.”   -Banksy

Louise Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois quote

Art is a guaranty of sanity. That is the most important thing I have said.

An artist can show things that other people are terrified of expressing.

To be an artist, you need to exist in a world of silence.
