UK (North East)
Then – Now – Next:
Started out painting on the streets of the North East around Teesside. Have taken part in UtsirArt: Streetart Without Streets” in Norway. Upcoming group exhibition include “WAT-AAH: Taking Back The Streets” in NYC and possibly some more around Europe which are in preliminary talks.
Hoping to get back to painting on the streets as it is what I love. Being invited to events is great but nothing beats the thrill of painting illegally in the dead of the night.
It speeds up the process and means you have less chance of getting caught.
To go around painting in derelict places within nature around Europe (much like DOLK and POBEL have done in the past)
If it is a single layer stencil then I just draw it out on 270gsm card and cut the stencil from it. If it is a multi-layered stencil then I draw it out first on A3 paper, scan it in on computer and the edit the layers in Photoshop. Finally I print them out and cut the stencil.
Pop or Punk:
Punk. Commercial music is not my thing.
Legal vs illegal:
Illegal- Nothing beats the buzz of breaking the law.
Outside or inside?
I hate doing canvases and originals but sadly you have to raise money for paints and materials. Streetart isn’t cheap.
