I leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and nights that I am away from you.
To paint is the most terrific thing that there is, but to do it well is very difficult.
My toys were those of a boy: skates, bicycles.
Really, I do not know whether my paintings are surrealist or not, but I do know that they are the frankest expression of myself.
They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn't. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.
I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.
