I am driven by classical art and I would love to follow in the footsteps of the beloved artists from the past like Veronese, Da Vinci, Andrea del Sarto. I am grateful for art which is based on canons of ideal forms or divine ideal proportions.
I particularly admire artists such as David and Ingre.
This grandiose tragedy that we call modern art.
Don't bother about being modern. Unfortunately, it is the one thing that, whatever you do, you cannot avoid.
We are all hungry and thirsty for concrete images. Abstract art will have been good for one thing: to restore its exact virginity to figurative art. This grandiose tragedy that we call modern art.
Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.
- Salvador Dali
