Umberto Eco, Takeshi Kitano and Paul Bowles.
“This is a strange pairing of strict discipline with bold enthusiasm and idealism. You are a traveler at heart, and your restless nature has a need to be on the go all the time, either physically or mentally.”)
Matisse said,
“The essential thing is to spring forth, to express the bolt of lightning one senses upon contact with a thing. The function of the artist is not to translate an observation but to express the shock of the object on his nature; the shock, with the original reaction.”
