(Pablo Picasso)
art is the lie that makes us realize truth

El arte sacude del alma el polvo acumulado en la vida diaria

There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.
Pablo Picasso
There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun.
Pablo Picasso
