great quote from English sculptor Anthony Gormley.

Watched a fantastic programme this evening, Sunday the 25th of April 2010, on ABC2 about the English sculptor, Anthony Gormely, the guy that gave the English countryside “the Angel” and the 100 cast iron copies of his own body dotted along the seaside in the north of England and recently had similar figures mounted on the top of buildings around London and New York, anyway, during the interview he said this:
" An artist doesn’t do other’s bidding, but, finds out what is worth doing and do that, completely!"
so to all those people who constantly say, (and thse people don’t paint or create anything themselves, by the way) “why don’t you paint something that pe0ple want to buy?” this quote is why I don’t paint things that match the curtains and the lounge.
