I was very much into buying contemporary art but I’ve just decided I want to get rid of it all. Not that it’s not great art but all of a sudden my mood has changed and I want to go back to seventeenth- and eighteenth-century masters.
I view art as an inspirational tool.
I think good art does come from a dark place.
I just wish the crowd I was associated with was more passionate about what they were doing and less consumed with the commerce of the art form.
I don’t watch television I think it destroys the art of talking about oneself.
I don’t think any movie or any book or any work of art can solve the stalemate in the Middle East today. But it’s certainly worth a try.
I didn’t grow up thinking of movies as film or art but as movies something to do on a Saturday afternoon.
I consider skateboarding an art form a lifestyle and a sport. ‘Action sport’ would be the least offensive categorization.
