ART QUOTES: What is an Artist?

For artist I think you could read any person who strives to express the creative part of themselves but the images here are also wonderful.

Reblogged from The Remodern Review


Bearden Dream of Exile

Romare Bearden “Dream of Exile”

If you’re any kind of artist, you make a miraculous journey, and you come back and make some statements in shapes and colors of where you were.

-Romare Bearden



William S. Burroughs with his shotgun art

Artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact.

-William S. Burroughs


Guston Sun

Philip Guston

We are image-makers and image-ridden… We work until we vanish.

-Philip Guston

George Bellows “Cliff Dwellers”

-George Bellows



Saul Steinberg

The artist is an educator of artists of the future…

-Saul Steinberg
