  • The good poet welds his theft into a whole of feeling which is unique, utterly different from that from which it was torn; the bad poet throws it into something which has no cohesion.

  • I think that to be a good artist, you have to have ideas as well as manual skills. It's a blend of the two, hopefully, and there are a lot of people there that can do things well, but they might not be devoid of good ideas or maybe they're not especially interesting ideas, or maybe there's a good idea that a person is unable to execute in the manner that does justice to the idea.

  • We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.

    "Triumph of the Nerds: The Rise of Accidental Empires". PBS Documentary, 1996.
  • Bad artists ignore the darkness of human existence. Good artists often get stuck there. Great artists embrace the full catastrophe of our condition and find beyond it an even deeper truth of peace, healing, and redemption.

    Interview with John Tusa, May 21, 2009.
  • When I propose a candidate for a job I don't do it because the person in question is the best but because he is the one the client will employ. I provide them with a head that is good enough, placed on a body they want. [...] The world is full of people who pay serious money for bad pictures by good artists. And mediocre heads on tall bodies.

  • A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent upon arriving. A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants. A good scientist has freed himself of concepts and keeps his mind open to what is.

  • A real good artist is basically a grown-up kid, who never kills the kid. What we call being an adult is basically about killing the kid. People think you have to forget about the kid to become an adult and deal with grown-up problems. But, that's bullshit. We are still kids. It's the same, you just grow up. You're a kid with more experience.

    "Quentin Dupieux Talks WRONG COPS, Fast-Paced Shoots, and His Secret Project with Marilyn Manson". Interview with Christina Radish, December 25, 2013.
  • I had thrown my body in for art... I had thrown myself into this game for art. You know, I was not a very good artist. But this was, like, one thing I could do. (On being photographed nude playing chess with Marcel Duchamp at Duchamp's 1963 retrospective at the Pasadena Museum of Art.)

  • There must be understanding between the artist and the people. In the best ages of art that has always been the case. Genius can probably run on ahead and seek out new ways. But the good artists who follow after genius — and I count myself among these — have to restore the lost connection once more.

    Käthe Kollwitz, Hans Kollwitz (1988). “The Diary and Letters of Kaethe Kollwitz”, p.68, Northwestern University Press

    Art   Hate   Creativity  
    Christopher Makos, Andy Warhol (2003). “Warhol Memoir”
  • I'm learning about filming, and just conceptualizing as well. I think it's a good artistic inroad, even to music as well.

    "Belle and Sebastian". Interview with Gretta Cohn, March 6, 2006.
  • I've heard many times that with all good artists it's ultimately a self-portrait even if it's an abstraction. I feel my work is very much who I am. I didn't try to make it that way; it just is. It reflects who I am and also my interests.

  • If I stop being on good behaviour for a moment, my dark little secret is that I don't actually believe many people in the art world have much feeling for art and simply cannot tell a good artist from a weak one, until the artist has enjoyed the validation of others - a received pronunciation.

    Charles Saatchi (2012). “My Name is Charles Saatchi and I am an Artoholic. New Extended Edition: Questions from Journalists and Readers”, p.46
  • Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is.

    Art   Discovery   Self  
    Elizabeth Frank, Jackson Pollock (1983). “Jackson Pollock”, Abbeville Pr
  • What a good artist understands is that nothing comes from nowhere. All creative work builds on what came before. Nothing is completely original.

    Austin Kleon (2012). “Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative”, p.7, Workman Publishing
  • Every man who is any kind of artist has a great deal of female in him. I act and give of myself as a man, but I register and receive with the soul of a woman. The only really good artists are feminine. I can't admit the existence of an artist whose dominant personality is masculine.

    Peter Biskind (2013). “My Lunches with Orson: Conversations between Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles”, p.235, Macmillan
  • An artist is someone who produces things that people don't need to have but that he - for some reason - thinks it would be a good idea to give them.

    Art   Business   Thinking  
    Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B and Back Again) (1975) ch. 10
  • A good artist's always got his hand in his zipper.

    Artist   Hands   Zippers  
  • You really can't be a good artist if you can't say what you really feel. And people may be offended, but, you know, that's how you feel, and that is your right, and that is your gift as well.

  • Being a good artist is the toughest job you could pick, and you have to be a little nuts to take it on.

    Jobs   Artist   Nuts  
    Charles Saatchi (2009). “My Name is Charles Saatchi and I Am an Artoholic”, Phaidon Press
  • There are no rules about investment. Sharks can be good. Artist's dung can be good. Oil on canvas can be good.

    Charles Saatchi (2009). “My Name is Charles Saatchi and I Am an Artoholic”, Phaidon Press
  • Let the writer take up surgery or bricklaying if he is interested in technique. There is no mechanical way to get the writing done, no shortcut. The young writer would be a fool to follow a theory. Teach yourself by your own mistakes; people learn only by error. The good artist believes that nobody is good enough to give him advice. He has supreme vanity. No matter how much he admires the old writer, he wants to beat him.

    "William Faulkner, The Art of Fiction No. 12". Interview with Jean Stein, 1956.
  • Good artists exist in what they make, and consequently are perfectly uninteresting in what they are.

    Dave Eggers (2014). “A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius: Picador Classic”, p.168, Pan Macmillan
  • There's something peculiar about artists. They have ups and downs... After a while everything you do is just wonderful... then you slide back. If you're a good artist you're going to go down. And then it's up to you.

  • It's a poor artist who borrows--a good artist steals.

    Artist   Stealing   Poor
