There have been two great accidents in my life. One was the trolley, and the other was Diego. Diego was by far the worst.
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 leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and nights that I am away from you.
