What’s graffiti for you?
Sometimes therapy, always good times.

First it was the people around me like Enta, Green, Form, Heat. These days is the old New York stuff, Blade, CometKing2 and many more.

Tell us about your city, how is life and graffiti there?
Hamburg has a big graffiti thing going on, many good crews and a lot of new starters with a fresh Style going on trains, the hall business is also good, we have many different style painters.

What keeps you still writing?
Graffiti for me is constantly learning.

What first made you interested in graffiti and how did you end up on that track?
I found some spray paint in the attic, and start tagging my home area, it came fast that i meet people who’s doing the same like me and the story goes on.

What trends are you seeing now in the graffiti world that you don’t like?
Toooo much hyping around, to much talk and ass-kissing.

What do you do when you’re not painting?
Working as a Graphic designer, travel, chill, eat, sleep.

How would you describe your style? 
Bright colors, simple and tricky letters, black outlines for sure.

Can you remember the first piece you did?
Yes it was shit, but some how cleaner than things i did years later.

Future plans?
Travel, always travel.

What are the best and worst aspects of graffiti?
Worst is: Not so much time, paint with a mask, buying paint, blocked caps.
The best: Get cans for free, painted trains, be outside, meet people around the world.

Can you ever feel tired of graffiti?
I think not.

What do you hope people will think and feel when they see your stuff? 
Fun dude! i like to drink some beers with him.
