Edgar Degas - “Art is not what you see but what you make others see.”
Batman - “As a man, I'm flesh and blood; I can be ignored, I can be destroyed. But as a symbol I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting.”

His art is insightful and deep, yet not intimidating to the untrained eye; timeless while still functioning as modern; beautiful while remaining haunting and stirring.
