Five For Five - PKASO

Five questions for five flicks 

Featured artist - PKASO

PKASO is a graffiti writer from Brisbane. Over the years he has travelled and painted all over the world. If you were a reader of Dirty Deeds you would remember his countless panels on the London Tube. His style is unique and you can always tell it's him at a glance. We caught up with him for a quick chat and asked for his favourite five flicks.

1. What got you into graffiti?

Well growing up on the westline in Brisbane was all it took. During the 90's the lines were an art gallery, pieces as far as the eye could see. Crews like DS BWP CK STM TRP ACR and 73A to mention a few had that line looking great and I wanted to get amongst it with my mates.

2. How would you describe your style?

 Well I would have to say I like to keep it simple. Less is more sometimes. I freestyle all my pieces so they evolve rather slow .

3. Do you have a good chase story?

Haha, is there such thing as a "good" chase story. A fairly horrific one comes to mind. After being surrounded in the yard one night.

I somehow managed to slip past the cops and got chased down into a small yard about the size of a lounge room. The only 2 things in the yard being a small shed and a wheel bin. I opted to go head first in the bin with the police baffled as to where i went. Unbelievably they didn't look in the bin where i was upside down in the most awkward position. For hrs they came and went scratching their heads. About 3 hrs later i finally emerged equally as baffled as to how I pulled that off!!!

4. Looks like you have done a lot of travelling, what are your favourite places and why? 

Travelling is one great benefit of this subculture, I would have to say Newyork ,London and Naples are my favourites for painting.

5. What motivates you to keep painting?

I guess a lot of younger active guys keep me motivated, their "bug" still rubs off on me. Also my crew are very active and keep me wanting to do more! So many good times Jamming with the Boys!
