Crew: CLICK Family, BEA, ASS & Lups
City/country: Copenhagen, Denmark.
When did you start writing: Around 1989-90
What’s graffiti for you: Graffiti to me is a state of mind. A place within, where I relax, and find my peace of mind. This is where I have the opportunity to express my creative side using all of my different energies in a constructive way.
Influences: When I first started out in the late 1980’s my primary sources of inspiration were CMP and Spin05. They were both a few years older than me, and already at that time very skilled writers, who also had social qualities and values. In so many ways, they were role models, who took very good care of us youngsters, as we were coming up. I learned many cardinal virtues from them, that I keep in mind and still live by today, for that I am truly grateful. As of today, my primary source of inspiration are fellow writers from my various crews. They are all, old and dear friends, and further more artistic motivators who’s influence contributes to my graffiti. Among them are Tweb, Dasl, Husk Mit Navn and Reim.
Quantity vs Quality: To me it’s all about energy and temperament, when it comes to graffiti my life is divided in to fazes of both. In some fazes, I am in need of painting as mush and as often as possible in a Quantity supersedes Quality kind of rage. In other fazes, the only thing that makes sense, is careful planning, concerning the sketch as well as coloring, and emplacement, with attention to details, and with the sole purpose of refining my techniques.
What keeps me still writing: I still have much to learn, Graffiti is a never ending circle of development, as long as you have the inspiration. Further developing my letters and my techniques keeps me motivated. Besides that, a matter of great importance to me is the social aspect of this cultural form. The opportunity to join up with people local, as well as global, with the purpose of sharing experiences with, and the passion for Graffiti, you just can’t put a price on that.
Future plans: I have no plans in the making, a lot of dreams though, and a constant urge to paint, as much as possible.

We come from an overpopulated city, sorrounded by mountains and pretty women, where at the same time, there is a high rate of homicides, corruption and impunity, and the possibility of going out of home without knowing if you’re coming back alive. In this city you can find true love, as well as deep hatred, since life in here has a price: expensive for some, and cheap for others; it all depends on your luck and attitude.
The Caribes settled in the Caribbean Islands around 1200AD. Travelling from the Orinoco River area in South America, they quickly mastered warfare and navigation. Early Europeans claimed they practiced cannibalism and held rituals related to eating their enemies of war. There warriors had a reputation for raiding neighboring island and that’s exactly how CMS gets down.
