    I am not familiar with the quote, but the idea would be something like this:

    el arte disipa del alma lo malo de rutina.

    another version (more literal):

    el arte limpia al alma del polvo de la vida cotidiana.


    Hope it helps!

    oops, sorry about that! I wrongly assumed it was LatinAmerican Spanish.
    I'm afraid I can't help you with Latin.

    Take care,
