Philippe Petit art quotes

Art is maybe a subversive activity. There is a certain rebellion when you are an artist at heart, even if only in the art of living. ---->>>

Everybody wanted me to be rich and famous on my art. And I said no to all the commercials and all the seedy offers. ---->>>

I was in art school once a week from six to 16, which was essential in shaping my artistic sensitivity. ---->>>

When art in general, and film in particular, succeeds is when it pulls you away onto a voyage. Then it's a good film. ---->>>

I have been performing in the street for more than 50 years: magic for basically 60 years, and the high wire 45 years. The beauty of it is that it's never the same. It's never easy. And yet, part of my art is to make it look easy. ---->>>

I was born in a world of opera, theatre, films, poetry, art, and therefore, out of the wire, I made a stage. That's why they call me a high wire artist. ---->>>
