All artists lie…

Here’s a quick post in order to check in for the day.
Something akin to “proof of life.”
Maybe more like “proof of art in progress?”
I’m hard at work constructing today’s edition of the Warrior Princess.

But without further ado, here’s the quote:

“Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth.”
― Pablo Picasso

What do you think of this quote?
Personally I find it intriguing.



  • Hmm…not sure it makes loads of sense but sounds good nonetheless. .you could likely swap the words n it still works. Dark is the lie that helps us make sense of light…

    Hate/ love (or vice versa)

    Yesterday / tomorrow

    Chicken peas/ hummus

    Lust / love

    • I like your perspective.

      As far as the quote is concerned…
      When I first read it, it sounded nonsensical.
      But I reckon it plays on the idea that art is a representation of “reality.”
      My Warrior Princess is such a stylized version of “truth” that it might just be a “lie?”
