I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.

Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
