Paul Klee is one of my favourite artists. His whimsical, dreamy, childlike images are a delight. I love the way he combines maths and art, shapes, and numbers, symbols and letters.
Some Quotes from Paul Klee
"A line is a dot going for a walk."
"Art does not reproduce what we see it makes us see."
“Color and I are one. I am a painter.”
“One eye sees, the other feels.”
“Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it!”
