Art is a weapon and the weapons can change the world.

Good art is irreverent, excessive, controversial, incorrect, irritating, ironic, bad behaving, playful and beautiful or ugly.

Great artists don’t create – they destroy.

Painting is neither a dinner party nor a bed of roses. Painting is a struggle to the death between the future and the past.

Turbo Realism is an artistic practice of centrifugal compression powered by the high speed capitalism.

In a perfect world there would be no need for art.

Protest in art is like alcohol-free beer in Saudi Arabia.


I always disagree. I am always wrong.

I'm a perpetual dissident.

I like things I don’t understand.

The hypermarket is my studio.

I paint what you love to hate and what you hate to love.

I make art out of everyday life, including special offers and car bombs, exotic cocktails and Molotov cocktails, cleaning the house and ethnic cleansing, fast food and Blitzkrieg.

Why do I draw foodstuff? I’ve heard that the biggest businesses in the world are weapons, prostitution and drugs but I don’t believe it. I’m sure that the food sells more, everybody buys it.

I do drawings, but cannot draw. I do paintings, but cannot paint. I do other things, too, but cannot do that either. It is a tragedy, but tragedies are appreciated in Arts.

You see my problem is this - I'm dreaming away, wishing that revolutionary heroes, they really exist. Oops! I did it again.

I used to be a total artist but now I'm more a human being.


Democracy is the brand – Capitalism is the product.

I want socialism where everybody can drive a BMW.

We need more red superheroes.

Freedom of speech is of no use to a man who has nothing to say and freedom of economy is of no use to a man who has no money.

Dear oppressed people, I'd love to give you freedom but I have only mine.

Democracy and Capitalism = best friends 4ever!


The West is an orientalist joke.

In the future everyone will be tortured for fifteen minutes.

Christmas is red like Communism. And I like both of them.
