    Five For Five - PERCH

    Five questions for five flicks 

    Featured artist - PERCH

    PERCH is a graffiti writer from Melbourne.  He's been writing since 2001 and reps PS13 & SR CREWS. He is an all round writer rocking fresh pieces fat throw ups and has a mean hand style. We caught up to find out a bit ore about him and asked for his favourite five flicks.

     

    1. What got you into graffiti?

    It started in 2001, I was catching a harry and I remember seeing some guys doing insides and thought that looks fun. I knew then that school wasn't for me so I dropped out at the age of 15 and started bombing insides every day. Loved it. I used to get the first train to Flinders street every Monday morning and watch all the panels roll in. That's where I met a lot of writers and to this day I am still friends with a lot of them.

    2. How would you describe your style?

    I try to keep my piece style simple and readable. I'm not about special affects. I think my hand style is actually quite aggressive. I grew up on the Lilydale line, so I dig the aggressive hand styles that CW STR had.

    3. Do you have a good chase story?

    I can't say that I have ever had a full on chase before, touch wood! But, I do remember this one time quite well. There was 5 us rocking a set in Ringwood one night, little did we know APU had the place staked out. We were deep in an isle and 20 minutes in. My friend next to me was down at his bag and noticed head lights coming at us on the other side of the train. He yelled bail! It was APU raiding us and they were coming from all directions.

    Most of the group ran straight for the front of the train not realising they were headed in the same direction as APU. One of my mates yelled at me to follow him and in a split second decision we bailed under the track side train, scaled the fence and got away. Shortly after, we met back up and returned to the yard. Only to see APU standing there, so the boys started pegging track rocks at them and APU ran for cover haha.

    4. Which do you prefer, a chill wall with mates or the rush of a panel?

    These days I prefer to paint a chill wall and hang with the boys, but don't get me wrong you can't beat the rush of painting a train.

    5. What motivates you to keep painting?
    What motivates me to keep painting, I love it. There's nothing better then bombing, filled in throw ups, freights, traveling, drains/abando's and painting places that no one will probably ever see, not just painting your standard spots. My main motivation is my crews, SR, PS13 and the other boys I paint with Tabloid, Break, Peps, Howie and Whiz.
