There is no design without discipline. There is no discipline without intelligence.— Massimo Vignelli
Colossal Best Artist quotations
The men liked to put me down as the best woman painter. I think I'm one of the best painters.
The artist, and particularly the poet, is always an anarchist in the best sense of the word. He must heed only the call that arises within him from three strong voices: the voice of death, with all its foreboding, the voice of love and the voice of art.
One of the things my career as an artist might say to young artists is: The things that are close to you are the things you can photograph the best. And unless you photograph what you love, you are not going to make good art.

The best job that was ever offered to me was to become a landlord in a brothel.
In my opinion it's the perfect milieu for an artist to work in.
We should not have a tin cup out for something as important as the arts in this country, the richest in the world. Creative artists are always begging, but always being used when it's time to show us at our best.
Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated.

The artist is the person who makes life more interesting or beautiful, more understandable or mysterious, or probably, in the best sense, more wonderful.
The best artists are gone now.
Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.
I believe all artists, if they are not lying to themselves, must believe that the best part of their work, or even their life, is in front of them. To look only to the past and to say ‘those were the best years, when I was young’ is to say that in the future there is nothing.
If design isn't profitable, then it's art.
It's always funny to me when people use the phrase 'Best guitar player in the world'. There are too many variables such as technique, uniqueness, emotional investment in the notes, etc. But If I had to pick one, it would be Tommy Emmanuel. Watching him perform can be a study in artistic and virtuosic human achievement.
Most inventors and engineers I've met are like me.
They're shy and they live in their heads. The very best of them are artists. And artists work best alone.
The best artists are people who don't consider themselves artists, and the people who do are usually the most pretentious and annoying. They've got their priorities wrong. They're just doing it to be artists rather than because they want to do it.

I would let my fans and people looking from the outside looking in dictate that.
But, in my mind I gotta treat myself like I'm the best and gotta strive to be better than what I am. So of course my work ethic and the way I think as a person and an artist I'll feel that way. But on a boasting level, you would never hear that come out my mouth.

I dont care what kind of music it is. I go with the best artist we can find.
No art is any good unless you can feel how it's put together.
By and large it's the eye, the hand and if it's any good, you feel the body. Most of the best stuff seems to be a complete gesture, the totality of the artist's body; you can really lean on it.

The best artists are the ones that work the hardest, and if you work hard enough, you'll eventually experience the happy accidents that are art.
In my view, Zhang Lanxin is one of our best female martial artists, and I can't rate her highly enough.
It’s a curious thing. I suppose most people think of artists as impatient but I don’t know of any first-rate artist who hasn’t manifested in his career an appalling patience, a willingness to wait and to do his best now in the expectation that next year he will do better.
The inferiority of photographs to the best works of artists, so far as resemblance is concerned, lies in their catching no more than a single expression. If many photographs of a person were taken at different times, perhaps even years apart, their composite would possess that in which a single photograph is deficient.
Experience is the best teacher of all.
And for that, there are no guarantees that one will become an artist. Only the journey matters.
What do great artists do when you see a world around you that's in turmoil? Some of the best artists make you feel good (hah), they look to the future.
