«For me, the relationship between man and contemporary art is as follows: a person treats art as a form of entertainment, you can hang a picture on the wall, present to a friend, create a collection, go to Miami or Venice. This hobby. This is a very interesting party. When you begin to understand it, to decipher as crosswords, you do not need more other crosswords. Contemporary art becomes your hobby and zone of intelligence.» (AroundArt)
