"Good art is an accident,
   Great art is a miracle."

"Art is not buying or selling,
  it is doing."


                                              - Papo Colo

"Good art is
an accident,
great art is a miracle."

"Art is not
buying or selling,
it is doing."

"Every room is the
center of the world."

"The alternative space
is where we alter
our life to
change the world."

"I want my invisibility
to continue…
It is the ability that I master."

— Papo Colo
