Paris-based designer Maud Vantours is a master at constructing incredible 3D sculptures and mesmerizing patterns out of paper. After carefully cutting out assorted shapes, she meticulously builds up layer upon layer, superimposing the papers to create intricate and colorful works of art.

Picasso on YOLO (or why i put Kanye quotes, leather jackets, and gold in my painting)

What a sad fate for a painter who loves blondes, but who refrains from putting them in his picture because they don’t go with the basket of fruit! What misery for a painter who hates apples to be obliged to use them all the time because they go with the cloth! I put everything I love in my paintings. So much the worse for the things, they have only to arrange themselves with one another (Boisgeloup, winter 1934).

I want to be in a relationship where you telling me you love me is just a ceremonious validation of what you already show me.

Picasso on evolution of his work

I also often hear the word ‘evolution’. Repeatedly I am asked to explain how my painting evolved. To me there is no past or future in my art. If a work of art cannot live always in the present it must not be considered at all. The art of the Greeks, of the Egyptians, of the great painters who lived in other times, is not an art of the past; perhaps it is more alive today than it ever was. Art does not evolve by itself, the ideas of people change and with them their mode of expression (Paris 1923).

Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do.
