As a special treat since it’s the weekend, today we have a two-for-one offer! Firstly Picasso’s original:
And now Banksy’s version:
There are several versions of Picasso’s original quote and very little evidence of a) what he did actually say and b) if he did say the quote at all. Several other peoples’ names have been suggested for the original statement other than Picasso. Perhaps, Picasso stole the original quote!
One thing I do know is that the quote does not apply to stealing my chips at lunchtime, Jeni! Stealing chips does not make you a great artist. Producing beautiful monoscreenprints might though!
