I tend to turn everything into a battle against the world. Eventually, it comes back to the one thing that’s bugging me at the moment. I relate to people like the fisherman and the bum because they can’t get out of their trash pack, no matter what happens.”—George Condo

My art originates from hallucinations only I can see. I translate the hallucinations and obsessional images that plague me into sculptures and paintings.”—Yayoi Kusama

“I mean, they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.”—Banksy

"I use the word experimental to describe my practice but that may be a bit of a misleading term, as I think the word has taken on a different meaning in the context of art."—Tara Donovan
