1. What got you into graffiti?


It would have to be seeing Beat Street when i was 10 years old,that changed my life i started breaking and doing little pieces with artline markers,so ive pretty much carried a marker since then,i got over breaking on cardboard on the corner but could never shake the graff.also when i seen style wars a few years after seeing Beat Street it really got a hold of me!

2. How would you describe your style?


Id say most stuff i do is pretty simple public style easy to read i love the old new york public style so i guess that inspires me, not that my stuff looks like it but yeah thats my aim.

3. Do you have a good chase story?

About 5 years ago i was painting central station in Sydney with two locals and i'd just finished my panel and just signed off next to it when a few cops come running at us from out of nowhere so we legged it down the tracks and down under the bridge and i had a cop literally 3 metres behind me and i know i was not going to be able to run anymore and thought i was done, then i seen an arch under the bridge and ran threw that and around the corner and crouched next to the tracks waiting for the cop that was behind me to come around the corner and kick me in the face but it didn't happen they ended up chasing the other two boys so i was against the wall across the tracks from the cleaners and drivers building trying to be quiet as i was out of breath and breathing real loud.

I could hear some worker not too far from me outside the building smoking then after about hiding there for 20 mins torch lights started shining on the wall just above me more cops looking for me so i froze on the ground and the cops were literally just across the tracks from me and i heard them say they were going to call the dog squad so i shit bricks! I stayed put for an hour then slowly and carefully snuck my way out of there and was home free!

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

It would have to be getting set up by the vandal squad and police in the tunnels in Berlin,getting flushed out the hatch in the street by police coming at us from both ends of the tunnel only to have a heap of cops on the street at the hatch then getting hand cuffed and made to kneel in the street with about 20 cops and about 10 vandal squad having people walking past us looking at us like we killed somebody!then after 6 hours at the police station we got taken to the remand centre for a day then we got let go with no fines or charges!i just finished my panel then we got raided so no flik! It would of been worth getting pinched if i got a flik!
