EATS is a graffiti writer from Sydney. Over the years he has traveled, painted and produced countless quality panels and themed e2e's with his crews OWA & GX. He paints a mix of public to more complicated tech styles with his colour schemes always on point. We caught up with him for a quick chat and asked for his favorite five flicks.

1. What got you into graffiti?

Good decisions, bad decisions, drugs alcohol, friends and Kylie Minogue's 'Locomotion'.

3. Do you have a good chase story?

I won't break it down to every movement and thought but It involves - All day drinking, being reluctant about painting that night, an elevated spot next to a Cop shop  (not known before hand), taking a stack on the covered 3rd rail - spilling the kit everywhere, being spotted and seeing a lot of movement heading our way from the Police Station a stones throw away, tearing my legs apart while legging it through some bushes and  sprayed by a skunk as the barking dogs, and flashlights trail behind. In the end it was all good (except the smell).

4. Looks like you have done a bit of travelling, could you tell us about a cool mission abroad?


The amount of traveling I have done ain't even a drop in the bucket, Climbed down a rope of great length into darkness, through a open steel grate to reach a train another Kilometer or so down the tunnel. All went well - spent Good time, got good flicks. Happy days.

5. What motivates you to keep painting?

That's easier answered with what's not motivating me right now. Good decisions, bad decisions, drugs, alcohol, and Having 'Locomotion' stuck in my head .
