This piece Art Must Be Beautiful, Artist Must Be Beautiful, I made this piece in front of very large audience. And the piece Art Must Be Beautiful, Artist Must Be Beautiful is really about this image of art, that it should be beautiful. The idea of the, you know, that painting should fit the color of the carpet in the living room, which I think was so wrong. Because in my point of view the art have to be disturbing, art have to have a prediction of the future, art have to ask questions, and art have to be so many things, but beautiful or not beautiful is not important, have to be true.
