Name: Roice Crew: 333, K5U & PRS City/Country: Elche, Spain When did you start writing? 1995
What’s graffiti for you? My daily routine, I can’t imagine my life without graffiti.
Tell us about your city, how is life and graffiti there? I live in a small city surrounded by palm trees where there is quite a lot of activity, however we are not many who paint. The good weather, constant friends visits and the trips make it quite fun.
What keeps you still writing? The people from my surroundings.
What first made you interested in graffiti and how did you end up on that track? The 90’s boom, everybody at school started dancing break, listening hip hop & painting graffiti.
What trends are you seeing now in the graffiti world that you don’t like? I like it all, even the ugliest. I like all graffiti, what I don’t like are certain attitudes.
How would you describe your style? I sometimes feel like Doctor Jekyll & four different characters of Mr. Hyde.
Can you remember the first piece you did? Yes, it was on the floor with all types of markers & paint that I had taken from school, except spray paint.
Future plans? Continue painting & traveling around the world.
Do you adapt your pieces and tags to the spot/surface? Always.
What are the best and worst aspects of graffiti? The best are the trips, friendship & experience/knowledge. I prefer to think only about the good stuff.
Who do you paint for? For myself & my fan club, haha!
What writers have inspired you? The people from my city and from my crew.
Can you ever feel tired of graffiti? Not for the time being, no!
