I've been checkin'
out your homepage and I have to say I absolutely dig your style
man! What does graffiti mean to you and what got you into it, when
did you start ?
Graffiti for me it's a way to expressing
our current era. I wanted to paint after I came back from New
York (I know this not very original). I only began to paint a
few years later. The first graff I made was in 1998 on the wall
600 feet away from my house.
Where do you
get your ideas?
My ideas come from anything and nothing, for
instance, the shape of a motorcycle or the color of a billboard
can be value source of inspiration. I try to pay attention at
what goes around me.
is STYLE for you when you write and do you think graffiti is art?
The "style" is very important to me even though,
I think it is always better to excel in all categories.
How about music,
do you think there is any connection between music and graffiti?
Yes, there is a sort of connection but it
more like a abstract feeling, we all know it influence us and
many other things.
a kind of drug?
you do if you couldn't write anymore?
I would like to continue to draw, maybe draw
cartoons, but if I loose a arm ha!!! I'll try to paint with my
Do you think
more legal graffiti would stop writers from doing illegal graffiti?
No, I don't think so, because making an illegal
graffiti it's a unique experience, however to paint on a train
it is usually less stressful.
What is your
opinion of legal offers?
As long it's profitable, it does not bother
me, it is all such an opportunity for us to expand our art into
new frontier. Finally, I think it is important to paint just for
What's up in
Lausanne and Geneva (French part of Switzerland). I personally think
the scene there is pretty good, am I wrong?
Christy, I come from Geneva. I know in Lausanne
it is happening all over town. I don't know how big they are but
I know they are pretty active. In Geneva we cannot complain, even
though we are not many writers, I think we are pretty active.
How are the
connections to writers in other countries?
Thanks to the Internet, now it is a lot easier
to communicate with other countries. Even though, the Internet
brought us closer, it is still difficult to travel where you want.
Have you ever
been to New York or does this city has a meaning for you?
Yes, I've been to New York two or three times.
I like this city, however I don't like the intense stress of a
large city. Of course, New York is where the graffiti movement
developed. I like this city especially for the large melting pot
Do you look
up on any writers or are there styles out there you really dig (like)?
If I look at someone else's graff I usually
look for new spraying technique. It is true whenever you see someone
else graff, you are pretty sure it may stay in your head and may
come back to you in a different form.
How did you
and your crew members hooked up? How long has your crew existed?
I meet most of my friends through the practice
of my hobby. The crew exists since 1995. It has changed since
the beginning and many members have left the crew. However, for
the last 2 to 3 years the crew has remained the same, except for
Jag who does not paint as much.
How do you
see yourself in future?
I don't know. Maybe with paint at the tip
of my fingers.
Now a few words...
just tell me what gets in your mind:
Quality or quantityThe
quantity does not worth the quality
Oldschool or newschoolNo
old school therefore there is no new school
Chicks who writeI like
it. I think this brings a new dimension to this evolving art
