Word: Art

Painting: The art of protecting flat surfaces from the weather and exposing them to the critics - Ambrose Bierce

Art is by nature somewhat destructive. Every artist, while seeking to add to the sum of art, attempts to take away your memory and appreciation of what went before, saying, "Look at me, I am new." - Lou Stovall

If you really want to hurt your parents and you don't have nerve enough to be homosexual, the least you can do is go into the arts. - Kurt Vonnegut

The people who run our cities don't understand graffiti because they think nothing has the right to exist unless it makes a profit. The people who truly deface our neighborhoods are the companies that scrawl giant slogans across buildings and buses trying to make us feel inadequate unless we buy their stuff - Banksy

An artist is a creature driven by demons. He doesn't know why they choose him and he's usually too busy to wonder why - William Faulkner

No artist is ahead of his time. He is his time. It is just that others are behind the time. - Martha Graham
