Stealing - it's a good philosophy!

Although I'm not the biggest fan of Pablo Picasso's art I'm a BIG fan of the artist himself!

He had fantastic philosophies as an artist. His quote "Good artists copy, great artists steal!" is a statement that I live by daily.

I never copy, that's is artistically boring and non creative. It's a journey where the destination has already been tagged...

I study the artists I admire and attempt to steal their techniques, concepts and motives. I maul it until the idea becomes mutated out of recognition, I state it's mine, sign it and place it in public where other artists may steal from me!

As artists we should be given life sentences for the amount we steal!
