The Code of Art

The Code of Art

“I start with the color and create a background. For example, if it’s a mysterious feeling I’ll use purple. And then whenever I’m ready (and this is after I’ve had the feeling for a while) I start painting layers while the feeling is running its natural course. As I come to a closure with the feeling, the layers unravel.” – Kibbi Linga

Art for Art’s sake

“…I had a mentor, an art teacher who was very influential in my life. And he’s the one who said to me, “You cannot call yourself an artist just because you’re going to school and doing things. You cannot call yourself an artist unless you always have something you are working on.” I was 15, and that really stuck with me up to these days.” — Bea Gold
