Askew Interview for Acclaim Magazine

By - Sunday, August 19th, 2012

Askew has been one of the most visible and influential graffiti writers this past year. Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand he and his crew TMD have been a major force in championing their hometown in the international graffiti scene, going so far as to advocate to transform the capital into a museum of murals, as talked about in a previous interview aired on New Zealand’s 20/20. Check out this recent interview with the artist from Acclaim Magazine Here’s the introduction from Acclaim Magazine’s interview with Askew:
As much as us Australian’s consider ourselves hard done by in terms of international attention, we rarely give a thought to our cousins across the ditch. For the past few decades there’s been a steadily growing graffiti movement incubating in New Zealand but they’ve only recently begun to get recognition on the world stage. The scene’s vitality and energy is encapsulated perfectly by Askew One. From steel to walls to community murals, Askew is pushing boundaries both conceptually and stylistically. We caught some time with him to talk about the history of the Auckland scene and the challenge of putting New Zealand on the map.
