When I was a child, I drew like Raphael, but it took me a lifetime to learn to draw like a child.

-----------------------------------

In each child there is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist as you grow up.

-----------------------------------

There are beings who make a sun a simple yellow spot but there are also some who make a simple yellow spot a real sun.....

-----------------------------------

I don't paint what I see, I paint what I think.

-----------------------------------

Art washes our souls from the dust of everyday life.

-----------------------------------

If there was only one truth, we could not make a hundred paintings on the same theme.

-----------------------------------

Art is a lie that allows us to approach the truth.

-----------------------------------

The meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose of life is to give it.

When I paint, my goal is to show what I have found, not what I am looking for. In art, intentions are not enough and, as we say in Spanish, love must be proved by the fact, not by the words. What matters is what we do, not what we intended to do.

-----------------------------------

Obviously you never know what you're going to draw... but when you start drawing, a story, an idea is born... and that's it. Then the story grows, as in the theatre, as in life... and the drawing is transformed into other drawings, into a real novel. It's very distracting, believe me. At least I have a lot of fun inventing things and I spend hours drawing, seeing, thinking about what my characters are doing. Basically, it's a way of writing stories.

PIE - you know I met love he has skinned knees and begged door to door he no longer has the money and is looking for a
bus controller seat in the suburbs - it's sad

-----------------------------------

Basically, I may be a painter without style... Style is often what keeps the painter in the same vision, the same technique, the same formula for years and years. We certainly recognize it, but it's always the same outfit, the same cut of outfit.

-----------------------------------

Remember: the only person who accompanies you all your life is yourself! Be alive in everything you do.

-----------------------------------

There is no past or future in art. Art that is not in the present will never be.

The Song of the Dead by Pablo Picasso
I escaped from the too obscure lines
And I can't come back anymore
I covered the features of my face with salt
and I have no place in the world I ran away from.
Look in the sun
Search in the darkness
And look in your heart for an impossible echo
To the boring trails of exile in yourself
Highest

Like the dirt between the fingers
The sound of footsteps counted in the labyrinth of tombs
These houses without pride petrified tombs spread the venom of dreams
And the man who came back chasing to the pitfall on the banks of the filthy river
Night shoulders in the mud
Ships of the Salt Moon
The heart burns its gas
The mind crashes
A parapet of flesh
stands at the dead end

-----------------------------------

The Song of the Dead by Pablo Picasso
The chorus I hum
The chorus that supports him
He's not the one who gives it away.
He took it in my hands

-----------------------------------

The Song of the Dead by Pablo Picasso
Figured diluted in water
In the silence
Too much weight on the throat
Too much water in the jar
Too much inverted shadow
Too much blood on the ramp
It's never finished.
This crystal dream

Miracles of sleep
Hands tied in
the ruts
Feet in the sky
