avigdor arikha

A friend just told me about this artist, who died just over a year ago.  He seemed like a fascinating artist and I'm excited to explore his work further.  I love finding new inspiration from artists with so much history in life.

  1. Here's a quote from Avigdor: As he told the Washington Post in 1979: "People who think there is anything new in the arts are idiots. In my early 30s I was quite successful as an abstractionist. But I started painting my own set of forms over and over again. Finally, it repulsed me."
