Paco Rabanne

"I know that the sensible thing to do would to follow the common thinking but that is what an artist is unable to do. The intention of Picasso and Dalí was to always create something new, to go even further. Artists always strive for discovering something else, always to reach the outer limits of their abilities. It is not a question of futurism or avantgardism. I don't know what avantgarde is. I suppose it is living in one's time, in the present. It is enormously difficult, because even if some fantastic techniques do exist, everyone still remains almost 20 years behind their time. People are afraid of adopting new ideas." - Paco Rabanne
