Quotes About Successful Artists

Success for an artist is completed work. Very successful artists complete a lot of work. Its that simple.

There is no such thing as a "successful artist" (except, of course, in worldly terms).

— Donald Barthelme

There is no denying that one of the major attractions of these successful large compositions is their structural decorative use in the contemporary scene ... That these large canvases can be superbly decorative may not be considered complimentary by some of the artists involved ...

— Van Day Truex

Abstract expression is so solid, so successful and recognizable, but there's a mystery about the artists that goes into it, a fetishism about the artists themselves and who they were.

— Keanu Reeves
