"As an artist you make a comment about what it is to be alive today. Van Gogh can't do that because he's dead"
"Life drawing is going to the gym for artists, just suck it up and do it!"
"It's always been in between the things I thought I was doing that the real work has happened"
“I think art is a very important weapon to achieve human freedom”
"The artist is part of a community, you cannot separate the two"
