wow.

And a quote from an interview with the artist, Alex Kenevsky

What would you say to an artist just starting out?

Build up you self esteem to the level that might seem unwarranted. This will help you ignore both positive and negative responses to your paintings. Both are usually misguided, since they come from the outside. Be your most severe and devastating critic, while never doubting that you are the best thing since sliced bread.The moment something works well and is under control - is the time to give it up and try something else.

Put all your eggs in one basket.

Precarious situations produce intense results.

Forget subjective, it is mostly trivial. Go for the universal.
