After pop art, graffiti is probably the biggest art movement in recent history to have such an impact on culture.— Jeffrey Deitch
Cheerful Pop Art quotations
You're a work of art. Not everyone will understand you, but the ones who do, will never forget about you.
Fashion wasn't what you wore someplace anymore; it was the whole reason for going.
When people are ready to, they change.
They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can't make them change if they don't want to, just like when they do want to, you can't stop them.
The art of knowing is knowing what to ignore.
Pop art is the inedible raised to the unspeakable.
The pop artists did images that anybody walking down Broadway could recognize in a split second — comics, picnic tables, men’s trousers, celebrities, shower curtains, refrigerators, Coke bottles. All the great modern things that the Abstract Expressionists tried not to notice at all.
Pop art is the American Dream, optimistic, generous, and naive!
There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.
Pop Art is industrial painting. I think the meaning of my work is that it is industrial, it's what all the world will soon become. Europe will be the same way, soon, it won't be American; it will be universal.
Don't worry about mistakes. Making things out of mistakes, that's creativity.
People should fall in love with their eyes closed.
I found that I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - thing I had no words for.
The idea of waiting for something makes it more exciting
Outside is the world; it's there. Pop Art looks out into the world.
When you stop wanting something, you get it.
Art is how we decorate space; Music is how we decorate time.
I’m really afraid to feel happy because it never lasts
I'm not a pop artist. For me pop never was.... Pop is concerned with exteriors. I'm concerned with interiors. When I use objects, I see them as a vocabulary of feelings. I can spend a lot of time with objects, and they leave me as satisfied as a good meal. I don't think pop artists feel that way.
I've always enjoyed feeling a connection to the avant-garde, such as Dada and surrealism and pop art. The only thing the artist can do is be honest with themselves and make the art they want to make. That's what I've always done.
Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.
We, as pop stars, are people not androids.
We’ve got views. I’ve got opinions and I don’t see why I shouldn’t use a bit of my art to put them over. I think music is one of the most powerful media forces in the world today.
It is the transcendent (or 'abstract' or 'self-contained') nature of music that the new so called concretism--Pop Art, eighteen-hour slices-of-reality films, musique concrete--opposes. But instead of bringing art and reality closer together, the new movement merely thins out the distinction.
Mine was not pop art. I maybe started with a subject, but I changed the subject.
Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art.
I personally always hated Pop art.
I think a great artist should be able to create any style, any form, anything from rock to pop to gospel to spiritual, just wonderful music where everybody can sing it.
There are many more important things in life than fashion.
But fashion, to me, is part of pop culture. And I'm an art collector. I'm obsessed with art and pop culture. And I say that there is fame, fashion, art, music and entertainment, including celebrity, that really moves the needle in society.
The noblest art is that of making others happy.
I'm not a pop rapper. That's nothing against pop music - I love pop music. I've jumped on pop records for people and still will, but I'm not a pop artist. I didn't start from there. I started in underground music. I consider myself an underground artist, as well as a producer.
I don't listen to the contemporary pop artists. They all sound alike, anyway.
Send anyone claiming that their RPG activity is an art form my way, and I'll gladly stick a pin in their head and deflate it just to have the satisfaction of the popping sound that makes. One might play a game artfully, but that makes neither the game nor its play art.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
I wonder if it's possible to have a love affair that lasts forever.
I like cinematic art that doesn't have to include violence as the main meat of emotion. Now, excellence in cinema is based on murder, guns. Tarantino bores me. Even though he is very appealing and very facile about putting elements of pop culture into his work. But it kinds of dates it, right?
Pop art is about liking things.
Passion is the art of suffering for what you love; instead of settling for what you don't.
Most people don't realize the many steps that a pop-up goes through.
There are a variety of "Dummies" (the sketch phase of the book). Then finally the pencil "dummy", then the finished art which is like painting pieces of a jig saw puzzle.
As far as I'm concerned, there is no line between high art and pop art, and there should be no line.
Maybe we didn't even have a chance. The message of American Pop Art was so powerful and so optimistic. But it was also very limited, and that led us to believe that we could somehow distance ourselves from it and communicate a different intention.
Life beats down and crushes the soul and art remind you that you have one.
I never read, I just look at pictures.
I like adding little elements into the final mix.
I'm more fond of the '70s glam than '80s. I have that style of vocals... there are a lot of pop artists who are using the glam vibe in their music. I'm part of that wave.
When I started Dylan's Candy Bar in 2001, I wanted it to be a place that merged my love of pop culture, fashion, art and music with candy. Since then, we have been fortunate to pioneer artistic partnerships with many legends.
Business art is the step that comes after Art.
I started as a commercial artist, and I want to finish as a business artist.
