You just feel so free. No one can prohibit or prevent you from what you are doing. That is what makes life so important.
Where do you like most maked graffiti?
I prefer spraying in derelict areas or half-destroyed buildings. But today I am also pleased to paint on canvas and all kind of surfaces. Especially in winter I rather like to paint inside. It’s just too cold and I’m more like a summer guy. In Summer I try to paint outside as much as possible. I also like to work on fucked up surfaces or trash like all kind of recycle materials that I can find. I love to use different techniques and experiment on all kind of surfaces.

They gave me a big motivation to get on my own world. Switzerland Newspaper Company had interviewed me about my work and a few days later it was in a newspaper. I was very astonished that they were interested about my art work, which gave me strengths to continue and not to stop for what I’m doing.

I can’t imagine myself living without being creative. It gives me a purpose life and I can tell the world that I exist. It’s a feeling that only death can take away from me.
