The culture, seeing tags and pieces on my way to school and I was attracted to the styles. I was fortunate to have some of Sydneys best writers grow up in the areas I lived in and I was heavily influenced by it.

Bombing the back drivers compartment on a train between Redfern and Central when transit police tried to get inside the compartment we had to jump out of the train, across the tracks onto Regent St Then as we continue tagged on a shop front in Chippendale with DONE TSC only to have 5 cops run out and chase us down George St and get tripped by a guy waiting for the bus and I get arrested.

5. What motivates you to keep painting?


Watching my style evolve and progress, also the culture with social media it's eye opening to see how the graffiti community has grown over the years. For me most importantly i find it therapeutic and I get to escape form the hustle and bustle of every day life..
