I am no longer interested in seeing and knowing everything all at once in my work. Technically I select the area of focus and if it's possible I try to make an amalgamation of every shape and color in the picture so that it acquires a circular movement: from representation to abstraction, from life to death, and vice-versa.

— Olivo Barbieri

The most revolutionary Olivo Barbieri quotes that are easy to memorize and remember

2
