Hello My Name Is: 45rpm


Name: 45rpm
Crew: TUFF
City/Country: Bristol, UK
When did you start writing? 1999

What’s graffiti for you?
Most people spend there whole lives searching for something to make them tick. Ive found mine.

My crew push me daily, constantly seeing stuff they have done that is better then me is inspiring and makes me leave the house.

Tell us about your city, how is life and graffiti there?
I live in Bristol were in certain pubs there might be 30 writers out, so it gets messy and boozey in a good way. I wouldn’t live anywhere else in the world.

What keeps you still writing?
The smile it puts on my face.

What first made you interested in graffiti and how did you end up on that track?
Train journeys watching names pass by. If your artistic and have mischief in your veins graffiti is next step.

What do you do when you’re not painting?
I draw, paint, take photos, travel on repeat.

How would you describe your style?
Goofy nonsense.

Can you remember the first piece you did?
I wrote Pest in bubble letters with Hycote metallic car paint in a storm drain in 1999 next to a Metallica tag, it looked terrible.

What do you think about the new generation of writers in your city?
They push everyone in a good way, it brings different styles as well which is always good. Shouts to DBK, CNTS, NFA and ADNS. Bristol is full of writers with the thirst!

What are the best and worst aspects of graffiti?
The best aspects are the experiences i’ve had along the way and the people i’ve met. The worst is that its all I think about, which isn’t good if you want to lead a normal lifestyle. (which I don’t)

What writers have inspired you?
Petro, Oker, Tors and Seno. There always a step above everyone and always have been.

Can you ever feel tired of graffiti?
I get tired of graffiti on the internet! but not of doing it. If you get bored of it your in a hall of fame. Go explore.

What do you hope people will think and feel when they see your stuff?
Most of my drawings are made to make people smile, so hopefully they do.2

Somewhere in southern Italy, Opium1 had fun with a few Montana Blackout and Whiteout cans.


In this episode of MONOCHROME we feature Italian graffiti writer Socool420 from TUFF & PRNA Crews.

MUSIC: Pistol Pete
FILMED BY: Ghost Grammer

MONOCHROME is a series of graffiti videos, all with a black-and-chrome feeling, by Simple short videos featuring one writer and three cans in each episode. One chrome piece on one clean wall by one selected graffiti writer for each episode.


Socool X MTN 2G Colors

Does SoCool ring a bell? Surely it does, as it’s one of the names that’s ringing bells on the Italian scene lately. Apparently, the writer has got fairly comfortable with using the the 500ml format cans that MTN Colors 2G has to offer. There’s more paint than in the standard 400ml size, and although it’s designed for optimum performance over metallic colors, it works really well on colors as well. See for yourself int this video he sent us.
