Name: Drain
Crew: VRS
City/Country: Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico
When did you start writing? 1999

What’s graffiti for you?
It is a means of expression.

Influences?
Our neighboring country, United States!

Tell us about your city, how is life and graffiti there?
Guadalajara graffiti is painted with great freedom, too much quality and today a lot of people from other countries come to paint, the scene here is very active and always have a very pleasant climate that allows us to paint every day of the year.

What keeps you still writing?
Keeps me waiting to travel to know more people and more countries and today it has become my work and my way of making a living.

What first made you interested in graffiti and how did you end up on that track?
The first thing that caught my attention were the tags, Guadalajara was full of them. It was like a war of styles and i was curious to do it and that’s how i get to stay.

What trends are you seeing now in the graffiti world that you don’t like?
Actually there is nothing in the graffiti that i like.

What do you do when you’re not painting?
When i’m not taking the opportunity to draw paint design, i always do everything related to the graffiti i think this is already a lifestyle.

How would you describe your style?
I like the simple structure of the letter rather than the effects.

Can you remember the first piece you did?
I do not remember my first piece.

Future plans?
Continue traveling the world.

Do you adapt your pieces and tags to the spot/surface?
Most of the time i do not have a fixed place and i’m always walking the streets, and if l see something l like l do mine legally or illegally, longer and based on size or time l have to realise it is what l paint, most of the time unawares and the result is always good.

What do you think about the new generation of writers in your city?
I do not like the new generations of my city, their lacking information and especially respect for this movement.

What are the best and worst aspects of graffiti?
Maybe you do tourism at low cost, best friends has given me the graffiti and the worst that also has given me my worst enemies lol.

Who do you paint for?
I paint for me, this takes me to a search where l discover many thing about me that l did not know.

What writers have inspired you?
I get inspired by my friends that l met along this journey, and all contributed a bit to not only be better as a writer but as someone who is more interested in improving.

Can you ever feel tired of graffiti?
Never, l do not see a life without graffiti.

What do you hope people will think and feel when they see your stuff?
I just want to feel that they are made with sincerity and if l do feel some gesture of peace or happiness for my very satisfactory serious.
