Surabaya is my city, where i feel very comfortable with the environment, friendly people and willing to open minds about new things. I am very lucky to be living in surabaya which is very safe to do graffiti from my start up till now. The development of graffiti in surabaya itself are very rapid with the hot competition among actors graffiti itself, which makes them persist in their respective ways to show the existence in the national scene in particular and international generally.

Some of the things that make me stand in graffiti, because graffiti includes many things on it, not just talking about graffiti itself, but more broadly covering to life that is comfortable for me to live.

The spread of graffiti at that time only through the cover of hip hop album on the cassete tape. There i got interested in the pictures on the album cover include tagging, throw-up, and piece, which is the end and lead me to try to do it on paper sketches. The following year i started to apply the sketch of the paper to the wall, until now.
