"For years I did not have any black paint at all in my studio. I always make sure the colors are pure and bright, pure and clear like in the works by Fiorentino and the mannerists. If I add black I just get a dirty palette, and I never wanted gray either." Norbert Bisky in an interview with Tobias Timm, in: Zeit online, 20 November, 2014.
