The idea first came because I didn't have the courage to paint a real figure, so I thought, I have to make it clear, so I thought, I'll have to make it clear, so I'll write 'Gandhi' on this picture above Gandhi. I can remember people coming round and saying That's ridiculous, writing on pictures, you know, it's mad what you're doing. And I thought, well, it's better; I feel better; you feel as if something's coming out.
