1ST PIECE (where and when) : I did my first piece in autumn 1994 in my hometown. I was infected by a tv-documentary about graffiti in Berlin in spring ‘94 and started sketching the day after. I did not know that there are different caps or that you can even by them separately, so it was just 3 cans, 3 caps, and one ugly piece.
GRAFFITI : is probably one of the big things that influenced my life – it made me choose my profession as a graphic designer and a lot of my friends are graffiti related even if they don’t write anymore.
INTERNET : brings together like-minded people, especially when you are not living in a metropolis. I guess my crew »bad company« wouldn’t exist without internet, it made virtual friends to real-life friends.
DRINK AND FOOD : Italian & Thai Food. Club Mate.
PHILOSOPHY : Actions speak louder than words.
MUSIC : A wide spectrum from 90’s hip-hop, electronic stuff and 70’s funk up to Steve Reich. It’s interesting how the music you hear while sketching is changing the result.
MOVIES : Rather series: Fargo, Stranger things, Gomorrha
LOVE : hurts
HATE : hurts even more
POWER : Andy Romano - L'amour robotique
