Ninety-nine percent of Indian people loved me and they still love me.
– M. F. Husain
I am an Indian and a painter, that’s all.
Wherever I find love I will accept it.
India is my motherland.
I am like a folk painter. Paint and move ahead.
I kept on trying to use so many media and ideas in my work because our horizon is so vast and Indian culture is so rich that I think what we are today, culturally, we have a unique position and I don’t think one lifetime is enough to encompass it.
Mostly people are ignorant, what is the language of painting. You know, they’re ignorant. It is so difficult to make them aware, but time will teach them.
I have not intended to denigrate or hurt the beliefs of anyone through my art.
They can put me in a jungle. Still, I can create.
I think you don’t do work for controversy alone, and whenever you do new work which people don’t understand and they say it is done to create controversy.
All this talk about inspiration and moment is nonsense.
I’m an Indian-origin painter. I will remain so to my last breath.
I only give expression to the instincts from my soul.
