Crews: PNP, RTS & K432
City/Country: Stockholm, Sweden
When did you start writing? Well, I started out in the late 90’s. Mostly for the rush, a classic toy with no can control. Good times!

What’s graffiti for you? Graff is a fun way to freeze time. To share that feeling with people who feel the same way is amazing.

Influences? Friends and crew mates. I prefer personal style ahead of perfection.

Tell us about your city, how is life and graffiti there? Stockholm is nice. A lot of nice people who is dedicated to the game.

What keeps you still writing? Mainly because it’s fun. I love adventure and the hunt for cool environments, preferably in the company of a good friend. For me it is important not to get stuck when it comes to style development. I sketch a lot and try out new things as often as I can. It makes it all more fun.

What first made you interested in graffiti and how did you end up on that track? There was something different about graffiti, another type of adrenaline. I also love the graffiti because it is so “in you face”. Quick rewarding and fun in the process.

What trends are you seeing now in the graffiti world that you don’t like? All parts of graffiti is important even though I think some things are bad. When you have all the ingredients and see every part of graffiti (good or bad) it’s easier to keep your own style fresh.

What do you do when you’re not painting? Workin nine to five.

How would you describe your style? Hard to describe.. Perhaps my style is funny, a bit clumsy mixed with a lot of attitude.

Can you remember the first piece you did? I did a ”snow” piece with stars made with stencils

Future plans? Paint with friends and hike in the woods with coffee and pancakes

What do you think about the new generation of writers in your city? Love them all..

What are the best and worst aspects of graffiti? It’s all good. Graffiti takes nothing from me.

What writers have inspired you? The list is long. Fuksh, Löper, Silly, Slim, Kalla, Triss, Nuek, Aman, Coco93, Sken, Each, Gnuk, Caster, Place225, Kram, Vato and many more..

What do you hope people will think and feel when they see your stuff? Let’s make world peace
