Quote of Note | Dinos Chapman

“You know the big Leonardo show that came here? I’m so embarrassed to admit this, but I was looking at the drawings, and I got really angry that I wasn’t doing them. So I went home and I started making drawings, and the next day I thought, ‘I can’t believe what I’ve just done. I’m competing with Leonardo.’ You can’t compete with him. I just thought, ‘Oh, my god. This is a really bad sign.’ But it’s funny because things like that should make you angry and want to work better.”
