You could say that if there is one name that truly represents urban art culture, that name could be ‘Os Gemeos‘.
The Brazilian tandem are recognized around the world as generators of highly artistic work, they participate in important urban art events, surprising with their gigantic murals and, as if that weren’t enough, they are respected by the most orthodox section of graffiti, thanks to their involvement with writing which makes them constantly present on the street in the more classic formats, like tags, throw-ups, and train pieces.

Recently the Milestone Festival was held and many different urban artists participated. Between them the duo Interesni Kazki. We took our time out to get closer to the dreamy, symbolic and conceptual universe where these two ukrainians are titled ambassadors.
Who is Interesni Kazki?
Interesni Kazki are two persons: Aec & Waone ( Aleksei & Vladimir )
How did you get interested in the street?
We started from old school graffiti, painted trains and did pieces. With time we understood that this way of painting would not let us develop that much, and we became more interested in work with stories and characters and stopped writing our names. This happened in 2005 aprox.
Where does your inspiration come from? Urban artists or classic artists?
We take inspiration from different things. It can be urban art, classic art, science fiction, religion, philosophy etc.
We see that you handle well painting in any size … What do you like about each of them?
We like to work in large scale but we also like to do smaller walls. It all depends on what we are going to paint.
Larger walls makes it possible to implement some kind of message since its well seen, especially if its situated in good place, like in traffic for example.
What materials do you prefer to use for your work?
That also depends of the wall size and how much time we have for painting.
For big scale stuff we prefer to use acrylic paint, rollers and brushes cause it gives us more speed. Only for smaller details we use spray.
Usually we combine acrylic and spray on the walls and sometimes we only use acrylics.
When we do canvases we usually only use acrylic.
What message do you want to convey with them? Are they personal messages, for a specific audience or the general public?
Sometimes we have an exact message in our work that address to society, different types of critical messages.
Other times we work more with philosophy or science fiction topics, with a kind of deeper meaning to it. It also happens we work without any exact meaning at all, people can be free to interpret the work as they want.
Often we get topics for our works from the subconscious.
After finishing the piece we can find some meaning for ourselves..
What artists catches your attention?
My attention catches artists who works truthfully, who works without thinking how to get commercial success with doing popular art.
What does it mean for you to paint at festivals like this? Does it limit your creativity or on the contrary it opens new possibilities?
Traveling and painting inspires generally, you see new places and meet new people.
Girona also gave us some inspiration cause its a magical city with its own spirit. The place we stayed really inspired, beautiful nature and mountains all around…
Can you describe the mural you did there?
Name of work : “ Seed”.
This work is about creation of life and the begining of the Universe.

Montana Colors was present again as the sponsor of the annual party “Eurocultured” in Manchester. If the festival rings a bell its because we talked about it a few days ago, and we where there last year as well.

Big THANKS to the organization, to Rekordelig UK, and the producer of the video, Joe Gavin.

A lot can be said about Mare 139. We could talk about his metal sculptures, ‘Street Play‘ by Martha Cooper and of course his part of the New York graffiti kingdom, but we choose to hold on to the memory of ‘Style Wars‘, where he had to repeat his name at the writer’s bench, spelling it. He seemed a little uncomfortable with the situation, not realizing at that time his name would be forever engraved in our lives.
Now we are lucky to have his limited edition based on this mythical image of the writer, captured by Martha Cooper.
In the pedigree of our culture, Part One and TDS have their own branch. Their pieces covered continuously the lines 1, 2 and 5 during the last years of the late 70’s and early 80’s in New York. Part One, a champion of wildstyle, has shown and proved his mastery under several names: Roam, Rio, Fudge 357, 2worm, Wepa, Ultra2, Rique…
This time, one of his mythical pieces decorates one of our limited editions.
Very few legends are still here to tell their story and make it stay alive to prevent it from fading away. In graffiti this might be said about Sento (TFP, DAMAGE INC), a unique writer whos personal style of letters has inspired writers all over the globe. The king of swing couldnt have been left out of our collection of limited editions. It wouldnt have been complete.
