To Paint Means to Create Movement.

Artist : Magunta Dayakar

To paint means to create movement. Movement is life. Life is precious. You could not buy a life for a dying person, however rich you maybe.

To create the movement on canvas … is an artist’s work. If he captures movement, life follows it. Then his work will survive forever.

To capture life, an artist needs good understanding of the language of art along with intuition. Language of art is a technical skill, just like the grammar of a language. Intuition comes from your life experiences … your sufferings, your joyfulness, your pride and frustrations, your success and failures … all of those experiences would shape your character. That character is your intuition. Every painting shows the artist’s character. You could say what an Artist really paints is his character. That is Originality. Originality survives forever.
