André Breton

Beauty will be convulsive or will not be at all.



"The simplest Surrealist act consists of dashing down into the street, pistol in hand, and firing blindly, as fast as you can pull the trigger, into the crowd. Anyone who, at least once in his life, has not dreamed of thus putting an end to the petty system of debasement and cretinization in effect has a well-defined place in that crowd, with his belly at barrel level."

The Second Manifesto of Surrealism (1929)

Yves Tanguy

The painting develops before my eyes, unfolding its surprises as it progresses. It is this which gives me the sense of complete liberty, and for this reason I am incapable of forming a plan or making a sketch beforehand.





Rafaël Rozendaal



Hafiz


Even after all this time,
the sun never says
to the earth,
"You owe me."
Look what happens
with a love like that -
it lights
the whole world.

Look At Book


Roy Lichtenstein

Pop Art looks out into the world. It doesn't look like a painting of something, it looks like the thing itself. I'm not really sure what social message my art carries, if any. And I don't really want it to carry one. I'm not interested in the subject matter to try to teach society anything, or to try to better our world in any way.

I can't do anything without an almost absolute control of my consciousness. When I paint, I am like a combat weapon.
