“The way of watercolor painting is like our world. The predictable, plannable and the unpredictable, unexpected happenings make [the painting] complete. Therefore, I apply watercolor technique in a way that allows paint and water to create miracles on the paper. Man, too, is like this, a merger of sense and sensibility.” Endre Penovác

Penovác Quotes Camus
In an interview with Canvas, A Blog for Saatchi Art, August 26, 2016, Mr. Penovác says the best artistic advice he has ever been given is to have humility. Penovác explains by borrowing a quote from Camus, saying:
“However … after prolonged research on myself, I brought out the fundamental duplicity of the human being. Then I realized, as a result of delving in my memory, that modesty helped me to shine, humility to conquer, and virtue to oppress. ” Penovac
