Five For Five - DRIBS

Five questions for five flicks 

Featured artist - DRIBS

DRIBS is a graffiti writer from Brisbane. He first started painting around 2001 and is a member of GBAK & SCI CREWS. He has travelled to many countries around the world to paint panels and explore different systems, you can catch a heap of his work in the "Galve Life" videos. We caught up to find out a bit more about him and asked for his favourite five flicks.

 

1. What got you into graffiti?

In my last couple years of school I had an art teacher who lent me a few graf magazines he had collected and it got me interested. He wasn't a writer himself, but he appreciated Graffiti. I thought if someone with this status approves of it, then maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea if I gave it a go.

2. How would you describe your style?

 

These days I paint the way I like to, I keep it enjoyable for myself. It's simple with a bit of funk I guess.

3. Do you have a good chase story?

Checking a spot in Brussels we had guards come at us from a few directions, we ran down the tracks for a couple of kilometres until we came across an abandoned building. We hid in one part of it for a while before being woken by some gypsies who couldn't speak english. They insisted we follow them to another part of the building. It turned out they had electricity in a room, a heater going, and laptops with wifi. They gave us blankets and a place to crash until the morning.

4. Looks like you have done a lot of travelling, can you tell us about a memorable mission abroad?

I had mentioned to my friend I would love to get the old district line in London before they took them out of service later that year.
When I arrived he already had the spot planned, it was a short rope climb down into the layup and we both finished our panels with no problems.
After leaving the area we bought beers to celebrate and made our way to another station to catch it running. As we entered the station to catch photos we could see BTP in the distance rushing to the spot once they knew it had been done.

5. What motivates you to keep painting?

Myself, friends and my crews. Its been such a huge part of my life for so long now.
