“True art is never where it is expected to be, in the place where no one considers it nor names it. […] Art walks everywhere, everyone has encountered him, jostles with him twenty times a day at every street corner, but no one thinks it could be him, Mr Art himself, about whom so much has been said. Because he does not have the right air about him.” (Jean Dubuffet)
