|But self-taught was quite a trial for me. lt was hard and had many obstacles. But as l have said above, the thing that could help me to accomplish my journey was my love of pictorial art. This love is not only a liking, it also implies a heart-broiling attachment to art to which one is predestined - The "teacher"of a self-taught artist is life, friends and all other artists who precede him. This "teacher"has a more liberal meaning than that of a school. That is the reason why l dislike academy and school. So far as l am concerned, "teachers"only help you to complete your beginning techniques, but they canâ€™ t help you to do art. Doing art requires a view, a personal opinion on plastic language. Art really needs an original creativity, so one canâ€™ t visualize it from any available pattern. lt is good to be formed from academic school, but in artistic life, perhaps you have to take time to remove it to accomplish what is of your true self. So, to be self-taught in pictorial art means to train oneself techniques and at the same time to form a view, a way of seeing and a way of living.
