Hello My Name Is: Socool [TUFF, PRNA]


Name: Socool
City/Country: Milano, Italia

When did you start writing? More or less 7 years ago.
What’s graffiti for you? It’s a game of unreachable satisfaction that leads to continuous apparent evolution.
My influences come from the good days in New York mixed with some Northern European funk cartoons, and of course my crewmates inspire me every day.
Tell us about your city, how is life and graffiti there?
 Shit but good.
What keeps you still writing?
 Love passion and being surrounded by some of the most talented graffiti artist of the world. My family.
What first made you interested in graffiti and how did you end up on that track? 
When I came to my Home town I was 16 and straightaway I started spotting tag stylers around the blocks. I did my first tag in 2007. I stopped in 2008. Restarted in 2010 and since then I’ve more or less always been at it.
What trends are you seeing now in the graffiti world that you don’t like? 
I think nowadays graffiti are more standardized via Internet. Unfortunately because of this you see the same pieces all over the world. You’ve got to do crazy shit to stand out.
What do you do when you’re not painting?
 Get high, work, riding my bike and eat Chinese.
Is it important that people see your stuff and you get recognition? 
I’ve never used the web to spread my name but I must admit that before summer I discovered through friends Instagram and now I’m a bit of a nerd.
How would you describe your style? 
Flat two-tone negative funky stuff. For now.
Can you remember the first piece you did? 
2010 with another name.
Future plans? 
Get high, paint, produce, get high, work with my crew mates, get high, collaborate with my bro from Southfresh on our line go check out all the stuff on the website www.Southfresh.com
