How has graffiti changed from when you began writing untill now?
In the begining, when I began to write it was more like back in the day in New York, writers bench reunions, a lot of writers, 30 to 40 people in the subway stations, taking photos, drawing, tagging.. It was more open.
But now, there is a lot of bullshit going on. There is a lot of writers talking more than they are writing. I say that there is a lot of good writers too, but today there’s more bullshit generally.
You have been tattooing for 14 years…
Yes, I began to tattoo thanks to graffiti, but to me they are two separates things. If I didn’t write, I would never have started tattooing for sure. It helped me alot with colors, and letters, the shading, the outlines.
When I began, the guy that taught me watched the way i worked and he tried to teach me his way of technique. For sure i learned a lot, but in some way I taught him a lot because of all my graffiti background.
Many people don’t know how big the community is, so when they realize they get surprised.
