I am angry with him but I have compassion for him. The reason I can have a relationship with him is that I donít see him as my father but as an individual. Iím glad I didnít murder him that day. I couldnít have lived with myself if I had.
Childish quotes
Your paintings are stuck, you are stuck! Stuck! Stuck! Stuck!
Childish
Before 1999, Tracey Emin and Sarah Lucas offered to get me exhibitions, but joining the Stuckists put a kaibosh on all that ó because I wasn't prepared to be controlled. I agreed to co-found the Stuckists to be allowed to say what I wanted, and I left the Stuckists because I didn't really want to be in them in the first place.

Billy Childish quotes
When I was better known than her, she put my name in that tent. I was asked to do Celebrity Big Brother, but why should I? We live in an age where fame is not related to what you do.
Billy Childish
Bowie and McCartney arrived, and the biscuits and caviare started and I left immediately. I donít like shouting across rooms, with people in shiny suits who look like used-car salesmen.
Childish Billy quotes
I like being on the margins. You work better there.
Childish
What, like Harpic?
Childish Billy
I loved moustaches. I used to draw myself with one. When I was 14, I was really into war and Van Gogh.
