Artists are funny (sometimes unintentionally so), but art? That’s often super serious. On a not so serious note, here are a few one-liners to lighten the mood:

Last year I went fishing with Salvador Dali; he was using a dotted line… he caught every other fish. Steven Wright

Which Painting in the National Gallery would I save if there was a fire? The one nearest the door of course. George Bernard Shaw

The murals in restaurants are on par with the food in museums. Peter De Vries

How is sex like art? Most of it is pretty bad, and the good stuff is out of your price range. Scott Roeben

A critic is a legless man who teaches running. Channing Pollock

Art isn’t art until it’s sold. Until then it’s an obsession and a storage problem. Anonymous

    One of the reasons I like Jeff’s art is because there always seems to be humour in it. (sometimes he doesn’t even see it first). OR he didn’t realize it was funny.
